Villasimius a former fishing village with flair and fascinating beaches
Vacation in Villasimius: enchanting beaches and the charm of a fishing village
Heading east from Cagliari on the coastal road, you will be enthralled by the variety of scenic beaches and bays. Those awe-inspiring views will make time fly and the one-hour car drive to Villasimius will be over before you know it.
All the things that make Sardinia so uniquely beautiful come together here, at the southeastern edge of the island: steep cliffs, long sandy bays and small, well-hidden bathing coves, always framed by the sea’s crystal clear, sparkling water. In the area surrounding Villasimius, variety is the trump card.
Indeed, this place has something for every taste. If you love to just unwind, taking long walks on the beach, you will adore the beautiful sandy beaches of Capo Carbonara (see here for our tip) and Campulongu. For those who prefer a bit more solitude, there are a few bathing coves that are only accessible from small dirt roads.
To this day, the region of Villasimius has been able to maintain its natural, down-to-earth charm. Numerous dreamy spots in the hinterland reflect the whole range and beauty of Sardinia’s nature. The town center originated a very long time ago and is still suggestive of how the former fishing village in southeastern Sardinia might have looked in earlier days. Today there are restaurants and cafes located around the piazza. In the summertime the village road turns into a pedestrian zone, serving as an evening meeting point for locals and vacationers.
Golf and sailing! Villasimius is all about sports and excellent dining
Those who love vacationing in Villasimius love variety. Many years ago, this community’s clever management had already understood that the only way to develop the area to its full potential would be to focus on tourism with a view to quality and sustainability.
And so the decision was made to create an infrastructure that would also attract discriminating and wealthy vacationers. The newly constructed marina as well as the 18-hole golf course have been part of the town’s scenery ever since.
In addition, Villasimius has a number of very good restaurants that are almost all family-run businesses. You will find optimal prerequisites for spending a few relaxing and enjoyable days here - all year long.
