Villasimius and its beaches

Villasimius is a town which boasts some of the most spectacular coasts in Sardinia. Here, you can immerse yourself in a true paradise of white beaches and an imposing natural beauty, protected by the Marine Protected Area of Capo Carbonara.

This area is divided into two large bays, bordered by the evocative promontory of Cape Carbonara, which forms the south-eastern end of the island.

The particular geography of the Villasimius area gives rise to an extraordinary variety of coastal heritage. Here you can admire long sandy shores, majestic rocky stretches and small coves hidden among the vegetation. This diversity creates a unique environment, offering visitors a variety of coastal landscapes to explore and discover. Whether you enjoy sandy beaches, charming rocky stretches or small secluded coves, Villasimius offers everything to satisfy your desires.
