Things to Do

Interesting Sites
While you are in Sardinia take the opportunity to visit these cultural attractions. Cannigione lies on the western shore of the broad bay that forms the Gulf of Arzachena. This deep bay has two harbours. The first is Mucchi Bianchi on the east side near the entrance and Cannigione on the West side. Tourist development has transformed this old fishing village, which was also the point of departure for boats to the island of La Maddelena, into a functional, modern vacation resort. The Gulf of Arzachena which reaches so deeply into the mainland that it seems like a fjord, ends in a lagoon that is highly interesting from the point of view of nature. The small village is charming and the hinterland fertile and green, in marked contrast to the barren rocky landscape so often encountered elsewhere. In the summer, the town is full of life in an unsophisticated enjoyable way.

In order to save you from carrying extra luggage, The Moorings provides snorkeling equipment: flippers, mask and snorkel for your use. The equipment is stored in the office. Just ask the customer service representative for the sizes needed for you and your crew.

Sardinia’s clear waters, rocky coastline and islands offer great scuba diving for the novice through to the seasoned diver. Alghero, on the North West coast is a good base for year round diving in deep sea with many caverns to explore. In the northeast dive schools abound and some of our hotels have their own dive center such as the Abi d’Oru, the Capo d’Orso, Park Hotel Cala di Lepre and Dune Village. For self-catering Residence Il Mirto. In the south marine life abounds and our hotels Sofitel Timi Ama, Hotel and Residence Cormoran and Hotel Chia Laguna have their own dive centers. Diving in warm waters of the Mediterranean during a vacation is definitely the way to have a go! Dive equipment contact information can be requested through the base in the event the client would like to pre-book their scuba diving excursion.

Sardinia offers numerous opportunities for fishing either inland on the numerous lakes and rivers, on the coast off the rocks or jetties, you can see the locals catching octopi and taking them home for dinner. Offshore sport fishing trips can be also be arranged.

Some hotels in the north of the island offer trips on The Poseidon, a 14m sport fishing boat with excellent equipment, a very comfortable cabin and sundeck. They offer day or night fishing, drifting, deep or shallow line fishing and deep or coastal fishing. The waters around the northeast are especially rich with fish and this is a fantastic trip for the keen fisherman. Inland near to Mandra Edera Farm is Lake Omodeo with stunning scenery and coarse fishing. There is also fishing on the lakes and lagoons that surround Oristano on the west coast. In the south there is excellent fishing at Cala Carbonara where there is an abundance of marine life. From Alghero you can take a boat and rod out to fish under the cliffs at Capo Caccia. From Cala Gonone there is freshwater fishing on the Fiumendosa and Cedrino Rivers getting better the further upstream you go. Whether you are a keen fisherman or a child with a hand line, fishing is a popular activity in Sardinia.
