Sardinia is perhaps the only place in Europe to guarantee these conditions. The best surf spots in Sardinia where to find the waves throughout the year. The best time for surfing in Sardinia is undoubtedly autumn – from September to November – and spring – from March to May

SOUTHERN COAST – from Piscinas to Villasimius 

In the south coast one of the best surf spots in Sardinia  is located in Chia with fast waves and strong winds from the north-east. Suitable for the most experienced. In particular one of the most beautiful places is – Cala Cipolla – it offers a truly spectacular scenery, plus it is sheltered by the promontory.

Located along the 6 km of Cagliari beach, Poetto is the main spot of the city. Waves not particularly high but very abundant, therefore suitable for the less experienced. Sea storms form medium-quality waves that remain to the left, which are slow and perfect for beginners.

The beautiful dunes of Piscinas frame this beautiful stretch of coast where the waves are not very high and you can have fun surfing.
