We originally went chasing flamingos at the Spagno di Notteri (the lake just next to the beach) and despite our great intentions we FAILED MISERABLY! It would appear that those pesky flamingos are a bit shy and kept themselves firmly in the centre of the rather large lake.
So instead, we decided to do what any self respecting family would do and head down to the empty beach La Spiaggia di Notteri.
We are so lucky
We came to Villasimius hoping for a beach holiday and that is exactly what we have got. We are just at our three week point (one more week left on Sardinia) and we’ve had the best weather we could have asked for; lots of sunshine, a little bit of wind and not too much rain.
The beach of Notteri is overlooked by the tower of Porto Guinco and the Lake of Notteri. It’s immensely colourful at the moment (spring).
Vacanze in paradiso
My idea of paradise involves blazing hot sun, white sand, clear turquoise water, marine life, a scuba tank and silence! Villasimius ticks all of those boxes although at the moment the water is not warm enough for me to brave it.
The kids have had an amazing time here on Sardinia and really loved being in Villasimius.
They’ve jumped and splashed…
We’ve been to a new beach or cove every day and they’ve jumped and splashed in the clear waters, they’ve scaled rocks, collected seaweed, counted shells, spotted marine life, watched waves, explored towers and so much more!
Looking for stuff at La Spiaggia di Notteri
Unless they’re doing something mega dangerous, I tend to leave them alone to explore and ‘hunt for stuff’. This usually involves dragging half a tree behind us or filling the bag with ‘precious stones’ or making sand tunnels for the sea to destroy but this is all part of their learning process and plus, they’re having fun 🙂
They even work on their maths skills! Counting shells, dividing shells between them, adding them all up. It’s all number skills and every day is a learning day 🙂
I am busy writing a post on our most favourite and recommended beaches in Villasimius and this one definitely features!
