Cagliari and Poetto beach are among the best spots, at the European level, for sailing.

Villasimius is one of the most beautiful Sardinia tourist destinations of Sardinia because of crystal waters, sandy beaches and the windy spots.
The main kite spots of Villasimius are Campulongu, Porto Giunco and Simius Playa. You can move from one to another spot (all spots all have a sandy bottom) depending on the wind direction.
During the summer season (from June to mid-September), due to the lack of kitesurf lanes and big number of bathers, for kitesurfing, it is required a boat support (Kitesurfing lift service).

The beach of Chia has a large wind exposure. Usually, north-east, south-west, east and south winds bring nice waves.
During the summer season (May to August), during the hot and sunny days, a thermal wind is blowing (often it can reach an intensity of 20 knots).

Punta Trettu, located in the municipality of San Giovanni Suergiu, lies to the north of the island of Sant ‘Antioco.
