Villasimius is a town that thrives in all the beauty of its beaches and coves of which the coastline is particularly rich.
Villasimius contains 76 accommodation facilities among which there are 2 hotels with five stars, 7 with four stars, 23 with three stars, 2 with two stars and finally just 1 with one star. 23 facilities are literally positioned on the sea. The area also has many apartments, B&Bs and farmhouses, all particularly welcoming and affordable. A lovely 18-hole golf course overlooking the sea offers its own scenery, a truly unique tourist solution for the lovers of this elegant sport.
We can take you right now virtually around these places starting from the beaches. We start from the Simius beach, particularly suitable for families but also for people who love the sea floor, thanks to the numerous species of fish protected by the adjacent marine areas.
Porto Giunco is located further east towards the exit of Villasimius towards South, even in this case the waters are shallow and the seabed is sandy, children as well as adults particularly appreciate this feature because it favours the possibility of diving into warm, blue, transparent water.
Isola dei Cavoli (cabbage) island is located in front of Cape Carbonara, in this area you can find gentle cliffs and small beaches, also with white sand. It can be reached by boat from the Villasimius marina. With regard to the origin of the name there are two versions: one refers to its shape which is like a crab (cavuru in Sardinian), the other attributes the name to the conspicuous presence on the land of the ?Wild Cabbage?. This island consists of untouched nature, beaches full of shrubbery, and is dominated by a large lighthouse. The area is chosen and frequented by various species of birds such as the peregrine falcon and the Audouin's gull.
Cala Caterina is surrounded by granite cliffs, the seabed is rocky and the sand is a clear grey. This is reached by a dirt track that leads to a residential area, that of ?Cala Caterina? to be precise. Throughout the year and even in the summer, this small creek reflects all the charm of Sardinia, while being a small cove very close to the protected area of Cape Carbonara, and is particularly coloured by the multi-coloured vegetation also formed by succulents.
Next are the beaches of Campulongu, over 500m long, Cala Sa Ruxi and Cape Boi, considered the most popular and also the busiest.
They share the extremely fine and white sand, the water is crystal blue and shallow and the bed is sandy.Along the eastern scenic route to reach Villasimius, your eyes can quickly fill with panoramic splendour. Wide bays that open to the sea where it is possible to see the bottom even when it?s over 20m deep. For the most part, the beaches are perfectly nestled between the sand and Mediterranean shrub, the contrast between the green of the flora, the blue of the sea and the white of the sand immediately confers a great serenity soon joined by the pleasure of feeling total relaxation. To this it is then worth adding that the rocks, even in the summer, are often partly covered by vegetation also consisting of succulents that, during the spring, form a view of purple and pink, variously and intensively nuanced flowers.
