Sardinia and its fabulous nature and transparent sea offers a wide range of water sports above and under water.

RUBBER BOATS, CANOE, JET SKIS, PEDALOS …

Are you looking for a day of adventure combined with some me time on the beach? Then we strongly recommend an excursion to Porto Tramatzu near Teulada, on the south coast of Sardinia.

The beach of Porto Tramatzu is one of the very best location in the area. Its white and soft sand is bathed by a stunning turquoise and crystal clear sea, the seabed is shallow and slopes gently to the shore. The fancy beach club is very well equipped with elegant sunbeds (some are super-sized!), free bathrooms and showers, changing rooms and a bar which serves light lunches.

If you fancy some action, ask Alessandro, the very friendly chap who rents water equipment on the beach. They have a large choice of rubber dinghies, some of which can be rented out without license, pedalos, canoes and jet skis. You can also ride on the Banana boat for the thrills or join a guided boat tour, which will lead you to secluded and pristine beaches only reachable by boat.

DIVING

Admire the wonderful coastline of south Sardinia and its relevant depths for example with this excursion to Chia and Capo Spartivento: During the navigation from Santa Margherita to Chia, you can enjoy wonderful beaches and coves of the coast. At our destination, get ready to embrace the crystalline waters of Chia, just a few kilometres off “Capo Teulada“, the most southerly tip of the island. During the dive you can see the walls of white granite of “Capo Spartivento” and many typical fish of the coast.

Never dived before? The crystalline waters of Sardinia are certainly one of the best places to start! Discover the underwater world for your first time with a PADI instructor and experience a fascinating all new world down below. Courses are also available for children. Check the diving excursions and courses proposed by www.sardeo.com.

STAND UP PADDLE (SUP)

SUP entails Standing on a surfboard and Paddling yourself around. Stand Up Paddle surfboards are much longer, wider and more buoyant than the usual surfboards, enabling you to comfortably balance on them and propel yourself with the paddle. The only condition is being a good swimmer, in case you fall in the water. In fact SUP is a very effective total body workout, which is also easy on the joints. And discovering stunning scenery from a SUP is much more fun than being in the gym …

The Kite School offers a 2.5 hours excursion starting in Chia that will get you into the basics of SUP, all in the calm flat water. You will explore alongside the numerous beautiful beaches of Chia and snorkel in its crystal clear waters. www.kitegeneration.com

SNORKELING

With its 1800 kilometres of coastline, Sardinia is a paradise for those who love diving and snorkelling. In its seabed you can discover ship and aircraft wrecks as well as archaeological finds, which now seem like they always belonged to that world. For your next adventure we recommend the Chia Bay, a golden dream beach with stunning crystal clear waters and a rich underwater world. The high sandy dunes, the charming islet of Su Giudeu just in front and a beautiful beach… What else could you ask for? Welcome to paradise!

KITESURF

In the last few years we have been seeing more and more kites – and kite-surfers and kite-surfer vans – along the South coast of Sardinia. Starting from the long open stretch of water around Capoterra just south of Cagliari direction Pula, Chia, Porto Pino and further up along the West coast to the rough Costa Verde. Windy conditions are mostly in the off season when everything is half price and you have the beaches for yourself. www.kitesurfsardinia.it, www.kitegeneration.com

GOLF

Two golf courses are located in the Pula/Chia area:

IS MOLAS GOLF CLUB, PULA

The 27 holes golf course at Is Molas was the first in Sardinia and is the largest on the island. It is one of the most famous in Italy, and has been the benchmark for this sport in Sardinia for over thirty years. Thanks to the proximity of the sea and the protection of the surrounding hills the locality of Is Molas enjoys a unique micro-climate, mild and particularly favourable for golf all year round. From Chia, Is Molas can be reached within 15 minutes. wwwwww.ismolas.it/IsMolasGolf.html

CHIA GOLF SPORTING CLUB

Visit the new Golf Academy (private area on request), 18-hole par 3 or the Driving Range and play your game at the seashore. The green is really close to the beach and the Café del Golf (the clubhouse) is the perfect place to meet and have a coffee or a drink. www.chiasportingclub.it
