  • I noticed this beach from the top of step for Villasimius the sunset was amazing. I'd go there in summer, I think it would be great.

  • It is nicknamed the beach of Cagliari "because it is close to the city but is also frequented by tourists etc. The path to reach it offers a taste of the wonderful coast Cagliari-Villasimius offering breathtaking views. The name of the beach means painted sea and is quite appropriate because the color and transparency of the water are magnificent, around there is only the Mediterranean with its perfumes and instead there are typical sand pebbles. There is a kiosk and a picnic area with Sun beds and umbrellas.

  • Wild Cove, azure sea, beach combining thin and small gravel, you will be almost in paradise to conditions that you file your beach mat in off-season! (may it is ideal but not the 1st weekend)
