The real beauty of southern Sardinia is the coast: long dreamy beaches and a sea that reminds one of the more remote tropical paradises.
In the south, from the beautiful islands of San Pietro and Sant'Antioco to Porto Corallo on the opposite coast, beaches with tropical souls alternate with colours and cultural riches that make southern Sardinia a favourite stop for foreign visitors.
Villasimius is a coastal town in southeast Sardinia with crystalline water, white beaches, glamorous lifestyles and fine local cuisine. The Marine Protected Area Capo Carbonara has barracuda, seagrass meadows and dive sites. Nearby, the Stagno di Notteri lagoon is visited by migrating flamingos in winter. Starting from the beach of Porto Giunco, the Sentiero delle Cave path leads to a 16th-century watchtower. Travel towards the West and you will discover the medieval Old Fortress and the white-sand Spiaggia del Riso beach.
