The intense deep blue colour of the sea, the brilliant white of its sandy beaches and the green of the Mediterranean land, all create an explosion of colours. Villasimius was originally founded by Punic seafarers, and the town grew on the strength of its charming and lucky location. The stretch of sea between Capo Carbonara and the ‘Capo Boi’ tower and the ‘isola di Serpentara’’ is now a Protected Marine Park, due its importance as an exceptional marine habitat. Villasimius is an emblematic example of all the outstanding natural features of Southern Sardinia, namely the wild uncontaminated nature of the rugged coastline that drops away steeply to the sea (often only accessible by boat) the characteristic little islands of Cavoli and Serpentara, and the long golden beaches around Villasimius that look like bone-white carpets sparkling in the rays of the sun. The Aragonese towers dot the coastline and the vegetation often reaches down and grows almost on the beaches themselves. Behind the beach lie the two Roman necropolis of ‘Accu is Trajas’ and ‘Is Cuccureddus’, ancient places of worship. As night falls, Villasimius transforms into a place of joy and wild abandon.
