Many mighty fortunate folk have been welcoming guests to Sardinia's Is Arenas Camping Village since way back in 1961. And why are these folk so mighty fortunate? There are reasons aplenty: first up, their workplace is on sublime Sardinia, a land of sunshine and golden sandy beaches, deep blue waters and old archaeological piles.
Even more fably, their site is on the UNESCO-listed Sinis peninsula, at the foot of the Montiferru massif, and deep in Sardinia's biggest pine grove among acacia, maritime pine, juniper and eucalyptus trees. More? There's direct access from here to a beaut six-kilometre beach, edging the nearby Oristano province town of Narbolia. An 18-hole golf course, also deep within the forest, is within easy teeing-off distance from here.
The surrounding Sinis peninsula is an utterly spectacular part of Sardinia, edged with white beaches and fine deep blue waters that are a hit with surfers and windsurfers from all over the world. To the north of the peninsula is stunning Capo Mannu, where the waves reach up to five metres and are the setting every year of surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding competitions including the famed Capo del Capo. Both the Sinis peninsula and the cape are part of a protected marine reserve.
Is Arenas Camping Village is a family-friendly site, set up for sunny Sardinian hols of all flavours, from earnest sandcastle-building competitions on the beach a couple of hundred metres away to more active options watersporting among the foamy waves or hiking and wildlife watching in the forest. Fishing is available straight from the site.
Kids have table tennis, swings, slides and foosball to tackle, among several areas set aside on site for play. The site also has summer entertainment for lively evenings, a TV room for times indoors, and free wifi if you want to research the best local surfing spots.
Whatever type of hol you go for, stock up first at the site restaurant, open all day for bites and drinks from breakfast to supper, including freshly baked hot crossiants first thing, aperitifs and sandwiches for lunch, and traditional cuisine using fresh local produce in the pizzeria for dins. Fresh local fruit, veg, local homemade cheeses, cold meats and other regional produce such as sweet sand jam are sold in the site market.

Networked by streams, dotted with waterfalls and covered with maquis shrubland and wild forests of evergreen oak, the UNESCO-listed Sinis peninsula has options galore for hiking, wildlife spotting and birdwatching.
Even by Sardinian standards, the area surrounding the site is especially famed for watersports too. Rent windsurfs, sailing boats, motor boats and other equipment on the east side of Cape Mannu at Mandriola, or take your board to the cape waves hankered after by surfers from all over the world.
More peacefully, arrange a scuba diving excursion or a boat trip to the island of Mal di Ventre from Mandriola, or have a heritage day among the several areas of historical and archaeological importance on this part of the peninsula, such as the ancient city of Tharros near the village of San Giovanni di Sinis.
Also within easy reach is the beach of Is Arutas, famed for its rice-grain sands made up of millions of pieces of pink, white and green quartz.
