Spiaggia di Simius (Villasimius)
Sitting at the extreme southeast tip of Sardinia, Spiaggia di Simius gave its name to the nearby town of Villasimius. Located in the Cagliari province, it is well frequented with holidaymakers and has excellent facilities.
The beach has fine white sand leading down into clear turquoise waters which are teeming with fish, making it a snorkeller’s dream. It’s also safe and easy for swimming, kayaking and windsurfing as it is protected from the wind closer to the shore.
The beach stretches for about 2 kilometres, making it good for a walk, and it is up to 50m wide in places. The beautiful bay is in an equally panoramic setting framed by hills and rocks. The outlook is across Porto Giunco Bay to the Torre di Porto Giunco on the headland. You can also see the lighthouse on the island of Isola dei Cavoli.
There is a fee for parking near Spiaggia di Simius beach or you can walk from the village of Villasimius, about 2km inland. Visitors can rent watersports equipment, go on snorkelling trips, visit nearby islands and book courses at the diving school. If you prefer to explore independently, rent an inflatable boat. To the south of Simius Beach there’s a pond (Stagno Notteri) which attracts many flamingos to feed and breed.
