Maldives.net.mv – Six Senses Laamu has revealed the activities for this year’s Aqua Season. The series of events this year include the celebration of International Surfing Day, World Fitness Day and World Turtle Day. With a team of experts, which includes Celebrity Chefs, an Aquafitness specialist, resident DJs, Spa Visiting Practitioners and the Manta Trust, who will engage with the guests and hosts and help increase awareness of the importance of the conservation of marine life.
Surfing Season in Six Senses Laamu – Surfing Season lasts from April to October. “Off the hook” waters would be from May to September. The Yin Yang, one of the most famous surf breaks in Maldives, breaks on the outer reef of the local island of Hithadhoo, only a few minutes away from the resort. Trips to the Yin Yang can be organized on a daily basis and most of the time, guests can have the waves to themselves. And for those eager to learn how to surf, a smaller wave breaks just by the resort’s beach.
International Surfing Day – Every year around the summer solstice (June 21), International Surfing Day is commemorated. It is a day in celebration of surfing and a special opportunity for all to pay homage to nature for providing us with such a magical environment. Resort’s team, together with Ocean Dimensions, invites the children from the Maamendhoo local school and their Surf Club to join the surfer guests on this day. As part of the sustainable surfing concept, a representative team of Six Senses Laamu will visit their island and install segregation bins to their school and give a small presentation on the importance of recycling.
Turtle Nesting and Hatching Season – Between March and July, female Green turtles visit the beach to lay their eggs.
