Diving into an idyllic sea

Villasimius is a true paradise in southern Sardinia, with golden beaches set among an iridescent sea and Mediterranean scrubland immersed in the scent of myrtle and juniper. The summit of Monte Minni Minni, which is accessible either on foot or by bicycle, offers unique views of the area, but the area’s greatest attraction is undoubtedly its coast.

The most beautiful beaches for swimming and sunbathing include Cala Caterina, Santo Stefano beach, Porto Giunco, the Notteri nature reserve, where you can find flamingos, and Punta Molentis beach. Don’t miss Cala Sa Ruxi, with its dunes, and Spiaggia del Riso, with its pebbles shaped like grains of rice.

The Capo Carbonara promontory, located opposite Cavoli Island, is a protected marine area ideal for snorkelling enthusiasts. On Cavoli Island in July, you can enjoy the picturesque procession of boats, which is held in celebration of the Madonna of the Shipwreck, the patron saint of sailors.

The centre of Villasimius is rich in history, which you can explore at the Archaeological Museum. Nearby are the necropolis of Cruccuris, the Roman baths, the Phoenician site of Cuccureddus and the Su Nuraxi Nuragic archaeological site in the nearby village of Barumini.
