On Sardinia’s southern coastline lies Villasimius – the island’s number one beach destination, and one of Italy’s most breathtaking locations. Here, you’ll find pure white sands and dazzling azure waters, not to mention beautiful pine-clad hills rising majestically above the town.
The town itself is a low-key affair. Take to the streets to peruse the colourful local shops, choose a restaurant to dine in or head to one of the nearby beaches for a day by the sea. Some of the best include Porto Giunco – a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice award winner, Spiaggi del Giunco o Notteri – a porcelain-white beach with a great laid-back cafe, and the Spiaggia di Campulongo, best known for its magnificent sand dunes.
For the adventurous, Cagliari is approximately 30 miles away, and offers visitors a dramatic mix of historic sights, lively bars and sea views. Try to book a boat trip to really appreciate the beauty of this town – it tumbles from the hilltop to the sea in a dramatic fashion, with gold walls and terracotta roofs glowing in the sunshine.
