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 (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.
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
Although Capo Carbonara (opens in new tab) sounds more like a pasta dish it is a rugged beach with plenty of opportunity to climb rocks, throw stones and paddle.
You can explore the island’s mining history of Cava Usai here too. This is a perfect picnic beach for any weather.
Punta Molentis (opens in new tab) has something for everyone! Shallow waters and white sands, rocks and rock pools, areas for climbing, spectacular views, areas for snorkelling and even diving.
This beach is perfect for families of all ages.
Spiaggia di Sa Ruxi
Sa Ruxi (opens in new tab) which is pronounced ‘Rujee’ is our second favourite beach. A glorious protected cove which is pretty deep in some places and perfect for (slightly older children) who like snorkelling and swimming alike.
The Costa Rei is a long, rugged and wild beach with waves. Great clarity, some depth and constant waves. It is an enormous beach and stretches for what feels like kilometres.
Spiaggia di Notteri
Spiaggia di Notteri (opens in new tab) is a long white beach next to the flamingo lake. It is perfect for sand castles, paddling and swimming in the calm waters. Ideal for families with young children.
Spiaggia del Riso
Spiaggia del Riso is a small and protected beach near the marina. It has an area close by with large rocks for climbing.
Spiaggi di Simius
Spiaggi Di Simius (opens in new tab) is Villasimius’s main beach and it’s 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 (opens in new tab) is a very small area of beach that is shaded by these rocks. It is a perfect location for sunset.
