You can practice Wind surfing, surfing and kite surfing especially in the initial stretch of the Lido, a few minute walk  from the historic center, in the stretch of Mugoni beach, and in that of Porto Ferro beach, about twenty kilometers from Alghero.
They are very different spots both for the seabed and for the different winds that blow there.
