The Province of Oristano, in the central-western part of the island of Sardinia, Italy.
The region offers a great variety of landscapes, from sandy beaches to basalt high plains and the steep precipices of Montiferru.
The region has a varied tradition of fine foods and wines.
The wonders of the Oristano region include the dramatic coastline, the natural countryside, the rugged mountains and Tirso and Temo rivers, the only navigable rivers in Sardinia. The weather, typically Mediterranean, assures a mild temperature all year long and allows olive trees, citrus fruits and vineyards to flourish.
Sports lovers can choose from a great variety of activities, also favoured by the climate, including:
Watersports found on the beautiful beaches such as Is Arutas, Putzu Idu, Mari Ermi and Sa Rocca.
Diving and snorkelling around the protected marine area and Mal di Ventre Island.
Fishing in the lake of Omodeo, in the rivers and in the sea.
Golf at the Golf Hotel Is Arenas, a 5 star Hotel located approximately 20 km from Oristano.
Horse riding, Oristano is called ‘the land of the horse’, with riding schools and horse events taking place throughout the province including the famous Sa Sartiglia Carnival in Oristano.
Bird watching in this area of Sardinia has a haven of interest including the wild kingdom of the griffon vulture just north of Bosa and the lagoons around Oristano are a natural oasis for flocks of pink flamingos.
Hiking and biking are also popular pursuits to tour the local area, with guides available.
