Hi all! I'll be in San teodoro. Was wondering if anyone knew the desk spots near there. I think we'll be renting a.boat one of the days so any secret spots accessible by boat would be appreciated. Also any companies that offer guide services in case I can't find a partner

There's not much documented DWS in Sardegna, but the potential is certainly there......I checked out some incredible spots about 100-200 meters north of Cala Luna (you'd have to drive to Cala Gonone and rent a boat there to explore these), there's SOOOO much rock going into the water it's crazy.

Also, you should google "arrampicata sardegna" and you'll find some direction to guides

Pietra di luna by M. Oviglia Sport climbs is a good guidebook for the area but no DWS. I will second NV's recommendation on boat rentals from Cala Gonone, if not just for the opportunity to DWS, then just to see the coastline on your own boat and swim in the clearest blue waters you could imagine.

That cave you see in my pictures is about a 5 minute swim from the northern-most part of the Cala Luna beach, it's pretty awesome.  

Bring a dry bag if you can.  You can take a little ferry to Cala Luna from Cala Gonone, sport climb on the beach, and then swim over to the cave to explore.

Also I was looking g for guide services not guide book if anyone has recommendations. Doesn't look like I'll be able to find a partner. :(
