The coast of Villasimius is one of the most celebrated in all of Sardinia, thanks to its fine, sandy beaches and turquoise water.
Here, we give you the low-down on some of the most well-known beaches, and on your arrival we will be delighted to let you in on all of the treasures of this magnificent part of the world, and how to make the most of them.
Porto Giunco can be reached by taking the "125" highway, heading south. Once you have passed the pine forest, the view is truly out of this world: a beach with pinkish undertones, contrasting with the intense azure of the sea. Behind the beach, there is the Notteri basin, where in certain periods of the year you can marvel at the rare pink flamingos.
Several parts of the beach are equipped with facilities, are you can hire parasols, sun loungers and sailing craft.
Transparent water and a very low sea bed extending out for dozens of metres: Campulongu beach is ideal for families with children, but also for those in search of total relaxation against what appears, to all intents and purposes, to be a Caribbean backdrop. It is one of the most famous beaches on the coast and, for this reason, it is very crowded in the summer, but is nevertheless very much worth a visit!
It plays host to an array of facilities, including a large car park.
The perfect choice for those who cannot face crowded beaches, Punta Molentis is one of the most wild and pristine places along the coast. Set amid granite rocks and cliffs modelled by the wind, it is surrounded by lush Mediterranean maquis the encloses the bay, with its white sand and intense blue water.
Spiaggia del riso
This so-called "Rice Beach" takes its name from the small grains of white granite quartz that are mixed in with the sand. It is the only beach of its type and is surrounded by lush Mediterranean maquis that slopes gradually down towards the rocks and the shore. There are a number of catering facilities and places from which to rent parasols and sailing craft.
