Oristano is located in the centre of the gulf of the same name, between the Santa Giusta lake and the sea on the south-western side. The port of Oristano is a large area with direct terminals and industrial lots located on the quayside and overlooking a wide navigable channel. It has its own specialist industries (connected to the entrepreneurial activities located inside) and a purely commercial one, linked to the handling of bulk goods in the port.
Because the Port of Oristano is purely industrial there are no passenger services. Occasionally cruise ships stopover and passenger services are activated. The AdSP aims to provide adequate infrastructure for all users.
