10 reasons to choose Villasimius Sardinia for your next beach holiday

Are you looking for a sunny beach holiday with near perfect white sand beaches, shallow turquoise coves and crystal clear waters?  Then Villasimius Sardinia is definitely your place to go!

Why you should choose Villasimius

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

Cala Pira (opens in new tab) with its very shallow waters, white sand, rocks and warm rock pools is a perfect family beach for young children especially.

Older children could venture out beyond the rocks for some snorkeling, paddle boarding or canoeing.

Porto Giunco

Under the tower of Giunco 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. Porto Giunco

Capo Carbonara

As a small child my favourite book was 'People of the World' which featured Inuits from Alaska, children from China and farmers from Peru. It was a glimpse into another world that would inspire me to wander the globe in search of something special.
