Nautical Sports

The Province of Oristano suggests a wide range of opportunities in the sporting sector. Its land conformation allows to enjoy either summer and autumn sports.

Excursions
On foot, on horseback, by bike, quad or car, excursions are the best way to explore the wonderful region of the Province of Oristano. Accompanied by A.I.G.A.E. (Associazione Italiana Guide Ambientali Escursioniste) guides, regularly registered in the relevant Regional Register, you may hire your favourite means of transport to venture into the amazing dirt roads of Sinis, to watch the magnificent pink flamingos and discover the most interesting aspects of this land.
Boat trips are recommended to explore the Marine Protected Area, from the Peninsula of Sinis and the Island of Mal di Ventre to Su Tingiosu cliffs and Cape Mannu;  also, SUPs (stand-up paddles) may be hired; or else, you may enjoy snorkelling around above posidonia meadows to get to know the typical fauna of our coastlines.

Watersports/nautical sports
Lots of businesses located along the coasts rent out inflatable boats, canoes, surfs, SUPs (stand-up paddles) and relates accessories, including tuition and training, with special reference to scuba-diving, also available with instructors and guides.
Swept by different winds, the coastline of Oristano is suitable for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing.
Cape Mannu (San Vero Milis) area is excellent for surfing, although requirements are quite stringent to practice this activity: this is why absolute beginners had better contact a school or surfers who are already familiar with local waves.
For several years, our Gulf has been hosting the Open Water Challenge, a multi-sport, popular  appointment dedicated to windsurfing, kitesurfing and watersport enthusiasts in general, with the participation of experts, athletes, amateurs, youngsters, tourists, authorities and would-be surfers.

In addition to excursions and nautical sports, a broader range of activities may be enjoyed in the Province. The Golf facility of Is Arenas, located on the western coast of Sardinia, at the heart of the Mediterranean, presents a course sunk in a extensive pinewood, skirted by a sandy coastline over 5 km long.
