Fari Islands: Men's Swim Shorts

With The Rake’s two island-chic shops firmly up and running in the Fari Islands, Maldives, we thought it timely to hone in our enviable men’s swim short assortment.

An eco-conscious archipelago, the Fari Islands sit in the north-central Indian Ocean, which happens to be the warmest ocean in the world. Water temperatures in its particular zone stay between 28°C to 30°C all-year-round. Considering its clear blue waters, rich marine life, and white sandy beaches, it is arguably the most tranquil sea to swim in. It is not just on the seashore you can dip your toes in or advance further in a freestyle technique, Patina Maldives offers 90 contemporary one-to-three-bedroom villas, many of which include state-of-the-art private swimming pools, designed by world-renowned Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan. In view of this exclusive travel destination offering unique and superior freedoms to swim, one would think it would be a catastrophe if you forgot to pack your swim shorts. If the worst does happen, you can be reassured that in our men's brick-and-mortar shop on Patina Maldives, you will have the opportunity to peruse swim shorts from some of the most reputable brands in menswear.
