Looking for a beach holiday? Villasimius is your place to go!
Villasimius sits on the far southern coast of Sardinia in Italy. It’s Italy’s second largest island (and the second largest island in the Med too) but it’s closest neighbour is Corsica (France) which is just a short boat trip away.
Sardinia has 2,000km of coast line and unlike Italy and Sicily it is NOT earthquake prone. The climate down in the south is also very mild with an average winter temperature of 11 to 17 °C raising to 20-24 °C in the spring and summer to 26 to 30 °C. If that hasn’t sold you, it has some of the clearest water I’ve ever seen and with white sand, rocky coves, protected bays and marine life such as dolphins and turtles, you’d be sure of a fantastic beach holiday.
The beaches around Villasimius are nature’s playground at its best. Here are our top ten beaches and why we think you’ll love them!
Cala Pira: With its very shallow waters, white sand, rocks and warm rock pools this is a perfect family beach for young children especially. Older children could venture out beyond the rocks for some snorkeling.
Porto Guinco: Under the tower is a small and secluded spot deep enough for confident swimmers and snorkeling. Its point borders the choppier waves which are also just as clear but much deeper.
Capo Carbonara: A rugged beach with plenty of opportunity to climb rocks, throw stones and paddle. Explore the island’s mining history of Cava Usai here too. This is a perfect picnic beach.
Punta Molentis: This beach has something for everyone! Shallow waters and white sands, rocks and rock pools, areas for climbing, spectacular views, areas for snorkelling and diving. Perfect for families of all ages.
Sa Ruxi:This is our second favourite beach. A glorious protected cove which is pretty deep and perfect for (slightly older children) snorkelling and swimming alike.
Costa Rei: A long, rugged and wild beach with waves. Great clarity, some depth and constant waves.
Spiaggia di Notteri: A long white beach next to the flamingo lake. Perfect for sand castles, paddling and swimming in the calm waters. Perfect for families with young children.
Spiaggia del riso: A small and protected beach near the marina. Has an area close by with large rocks for climbing.
Spiaggi Di Simius: Villasimius’s main beach is long and full of white sand. It does get busy but it has lifeguards on duty. To the eastern side are rocks that are great for older children to navigate.
Timi Ama: A very small area of beach that is shaded by these rocks. Perfect for sunset.
