Whether with a rented board or your own equipment, the bays and beaches of Sardinia invite you to explore them with a SUP or a kayak. Crystal clear, warm water and hardly any waves make for perfect conditions for an excursion. In addition, with the nearby fish farm, there is a very high chance of seeing dolphins in the wild.

Our recommendation:

  • Book a kayak tour with "Kayak Golfo Aranci" (www.kayak-golfoaranci.com) and experience the coast of Golfo Aranci from a different perspective. From the beach, you paddle along the coast to Cala Moresca, a beautiful bay in a truly dreamlike location. After a stopover on the island of Figarolo, you head to the nearby fish farm with a high probability of seeing dolphins up close. A unique vacation experience that should not be missing from your bucket list!

  • If you prefer to paddle standing up, you can also book a SUP tour with Claudia and Fabio from "Sardinia on Board" (www.sardiniaonboard.com).


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.
