Sardinia is born for water sports; windsurf, kitesurf and surf have found a home.
The wind never fails and there are the ideal characteristics to practice these sports throughout the year.
During the summer everyone can enjoy these sports safely, usually in the afternoon rises a light north-east wind with almost no waves that allow the less experienced to do "gym" at sea, while most experts expect the days when the mistral blows to have fun using the waves that rise as a springboard for their evolutions.
For surfing, we report Marinedda Bay, Isola Rossa, which hosts an important contest in August and is a well known spot for all surfers even international.
For info: Marinedda Bay.
For those who love the sea bed, it's possible to dive in the beautiful waters rich in flora and fauna that are a true natural reserves. At La Ciaccia, Valledoria, there is a center equipped for charging skuba tanks and renting the equipment.
We are in one of the most water-rich part of the island thanks to the rivers that run through the whole area and canoe trips and kayak on the River Coghinas are a real immersion into the nature. For info: New Kayak.
Wishing to spend a different day, you can think about a guided tour to Asinara Island, National Park and Marine Protected Area. Access is controlled and visits are only possible with affiliated operators that organize Jeep excursions, canoeing and mountain biking.
Sometimes, as we said, the mistral runs wild on the coast, and what better opportunity to an excursion inside. For those who love trekking without going much far from the stazzu, we suggest a ride on the Monte Ossoni or Monte Ruiu.
The more determined and trained should visit the website Escursioni Gallura managed by professionals and guides. Many paths are practicable even by motocross or mountain bike, paths that once served as roads to pass the cattle.
Another unique experience is the horseback riding. Sardinia has a long tradition of horse breeding and next to this activity, has developed several riding schools that offer courses (even short) and exciting tours.
