Forte Village Resort's position in southern Sardinia, just 40 km from Cagliari and close to numerous places of environmental and cultural interest, makes it an ideal starting point for all types of excursion depending on your tastes and the amount of time that you wish to spend outside of the Resort. You can hire cars, jeeps, bicycles, mountain bikes and boats or ride horses in the nearby riding schools. Itineraries can be sea-based (to other islands or along the spectacular nearby coast), land-based (to the fascinating Sardinian hinterland) or lead you to discover the most characteristic local folklore traditions. For instance, just 15 minutes away by car you will find the spectacular archaeological ruins of Nora , an impressive Phoenician commercial outpost. Pink flamingos nest in the striking natural oases of Molentargius near Cagliari. Impressive remains of the Punic city of Tharros lie along the western coast of Sardinia in the direction of the Oristano Gulf. Sardinia's beaches and coasts all have different characteristics, giving them all their own unique charm. Apart from the spectacular beach at the resort , chosen by Forbes magazine as one of the 25 sexiest beaches in the world , in the nearby surroundings of Forte Village, you will find Chia and its lagoon, San Pietro island and the characteristic town of Carloforte, Baia Zafferanu, Cala Cipolla, Tuerredda and Capo Spartivento , the perfect place for windsurfing. Many other striking places of interest are dotted along the way.
