Deep Water Soloing

Deep Water Soloing

Although there are hundreds of possibilities around the 1800 kilometers of coast, there is NO one major area for Deep Water Soloing in Sardinia. Probably we are distracted by the massive presence of limestone crags to turn our head to the sea. At the moment in effect we know of many places but never feel confident in recommending any particular spot. Many places only have one boulder above the sea, thus not worthy the trip. Other sea cliffs can only be reached by boat and others are too dangerous to be recommended.

Anyhow the best locations are probably Capo Caccia, Capo Testa, the island of Tavolara and the coast between Cala Luna and Cala Sisine.

Other decent spots include Cala 'e Lua, S'Archittu and the arch in Cala Goloritze.

The south-east side of Tavolara has lots of DWS spots that still need to be developed. This would probably be our first choice.

Comments are open, if you know of any great spot just let the web know (and we'll add it to the map below)

  1. Hello matt

    I am travelling to alghero, close to capo caccia, and i am interested in going there for DWS.

    Did you go there, did you find any more info about the area, was it easy to find according to map?

  2. Hi!
    I want to go DWS in Cala Goloritze and searched for further informations about the routes on the arch but i didn’t find anything. Does anyone know somwthing about the difficulties of the routes on the arch?

    1. Hi Patrick, I don’t think there’s any topo on the routes in Goloritze. Passing on under the roof or at the side it’s quite hard. You are free to explore 🙂

      1. Thank you for your reply. I’ll be there in about 3 weeks and I hope I can find some beautiful routes near the arch (or even under the arch).

        1. Hi Patrick, any luck with the routes? Would you recommend any particular place? Also, how was it climbing in July ? You must have been baking ! 😉

  3. Hello, we are looking for DWS around Algero or Cala Gonone. Could you indicate a guide for these places where we can organize a safe journey? Many thanks

  4. Hi,
    I am going to Sardinia in 3 weeks and I want to go on Via Ferrata and enjoy deep-watering in Cap Caccia.
    Is it easy to access? Do we have to follow a special path or is that exactly where the red point is?
    Are there any prepared routes or is it free solo?
    Thank you for your answer!

    1. Hi Vidal, the Via Ferrata del Cabirol (the one in Capo Caccia) was recently vandalised, please read our article VIA FERRATA DEL CABIROL VANDALISED
      In regards to DWS, you have to reach the bottom of the crag below the parking space. There are no signed routes, you can have fun finding your own. Hope you are aware of what DWS means?
