Wind- and Kitesurfing

Porto Pollo - a world-famous hotspot for windsurfers and kiters. The winds Tramontana, Maestrale, Ponente and Scirocco continuously provide sufficient wind from spring to autumn and offer ideal conditions for beginners and professionals. Courses and equipment are offered in the numerous on-site surf schools. In addition to Porto Pollo, which is about 45 minutes away another top spot for kitesurfers can be found in San Teodoro.

There is a special zone only for kite surfers, seperated from the approximately 5km long beach La Cinta. In the main season the sky is filled with colorful kites flying around. Located south of Olbia, La Cinta can be reached in just 35 minutes from Golfo Aranci.

 

Diving

In addition to beautiful beaches, the Gulf of Aranci also has numerous diving spots, which are among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. The nearby Aqua Marine Park, a nature reserve around the island of Tavolara and the Capo Coda Cavallo exists since 1997. After a short journey by dinghy you arrive at beautiful diving spots with a great diversity of species.

In particular, the dive sites at Secca del Pappa in front of Tavolara are a must for any diving enthusiast. Right in Golfo Aranci there are two diving schools offering daily exits. One near the Prima Spiaggia, the other directly at the harbor.

An hour away, in the marine park of Lavezzi, in the strait between Sardinia and Corsica, is another worthwhile destination for divers. Black corals and a large number of giant groupers make dives in the north of the island an unforgettable experience.
