The crown jewel of Villasimius are its beaches, long stretches of white sand or small charming coves that offer unique panoramas. Among the most beautiful beaches of Villasimius we recommend Porto Sa Ruxi Beach, the first town the Villasimius region you encounter when driving along the SP 17 road. It is a charming bay that opens up between the cliffs, divided into three small sandy beaches separated by rocks.
For its unique conformation, this area is one of the very few to be sheltered from the Mistral wind. Between Porto Sa Ruxi and Campu Longu is Campus beach, accessible via the SP 17 road at the Km 34,7. Visitors will find white sand and crystal clear waters of the brightest colors. It is surrounded by the typical vegetation of this area. If you keep driving along road SP 17, after the locality of Campus, syou will find signs for Riso Beach. Located between the small tourist harbor, this beach features small cobble stones shaped/smoothed by the sea.
Between the tourist harbor and Porto Giunco Beach, you reach Capo Carbonara. It is a rocky promontory covered by Mediterranean maquis. At the center there is the beautiful Cava Usai beach. Following the jugged coastline you reach the lighthouse, under which Cala Burroni and Punta Santa Caterina are located.
Finally, among the most popular and equipped beaches of Villasimius, we recommend Porto Giunco Beach, also called the beach of the two seas, because of the big bond that is behind it, Notteri pond. Exiting Villasimius towards the harbor, just outside town, turn right. The signs are after about 3km. Dominated by the Porto Giunco tower, the beach boasts two small coves, sheltered from the wind by rocks and vegetation. The sand is very white, and the water’s vivid hues change constantly throughout the day.
