The azure and turquoise of the sea, the gleaming white of the beach, dotted with pink along the shoreline, and the green of the Mediterranean brush. These are the picture-postcard colours of Punta Molentis, one of the pearls of Villasimius (and the whole of southern Sardinia), to be found along the panoramic provincial road to Castiadas and Costa Rei. The crystal clear waters lap the fine, white sand, whose reflections light up the coastline. The promontory and beach are part of the Capo Carbonara marine area and are named for sumolenti, the donkey, used in the past to transport the material extracted from the surrounding granite quarries. The granite rocks stand out like shipwrecks where the shore is tinged with pink at sunset.
