One of the most beautiful beaches in Sardegna. Make sure you make it to Porto Giunco!
Travel to a town on the southeast coast of Sardinia for its long stretches of fine sand, watersports and archeological riches.
Beaches, wildlife and impressive scenery, no wonder Villasimius Town is a popular playground for outdoor enthusiasts. History lovers have also much to look forward to with ancient sites and archeological treasures. Visit this former fishing village on Sardinia’s southern coast to see Roman relics, explore the underwater world, relax under the hot sun and watch wading birds at play.
For insights into the town’s past, spend some time in the Archeological Museum of Villasimius in the town center. See Roman artifacts and look for weapons retrieved from a 15th-century Spanish shipwreck. For even more history, go to the impressive Vecchia Fortress on a headland that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.
After your trip back into the town’s ancient past, make some time for the beach. Sardinia is known for its spectacular coastline with some of the most picturesque beaches in the Mediterranean. If there are children in your party, make your way to Campus Beach, southwest of the town. The water here is shallow and calm.
A little further east along the coast is Simius Beach, a good place for canoeing, snorkeling and windsurfing. Nearby is the large Stagno Notteri pond, which is separated from the sea by a sandbar. See numerous bird species here, including gulls, cormorants and pink flamingoes. Be aware that during the height of summer the pond dries up.
At Cala Sinzias, rent a boat for trip on the water or go under the waves on a scuba diving expedition.
When you are back in the town, amble through its historic quarter to find a quiet spot for dinner. The island’s specialties include a conch shaped pasta known as malloreddus.
Villasimius is situated in Sardinia’s southeastern corner. Fly or sail into Cagliari, the capital city and rent a car for the 35-mile (57-kilometer) drive. Regular buses can also bring you to the town in just over 1 hour.
Villasimius is a place of discovery, whether in the town center, on a beach or under the sea.
