A kilometre of fine, soft white sand that stretches close to the Pond of Notteri, chosen by pink flamingos as their habitat and the northernmost part of a sandy expanse that starts at the Spanish tower of Porto Giunco, halfway between the beaches of Timi Ama and is Traias. Simius is the ‘city’ beach of Villasimius and is located immediately south-east of the residential area of the splendid and famous tourist resort, enclosed to the north by the promontory of Porto Luna, which also separates it from another jewel of the Simius area, namely Punta Molentis. The splendid bay, protected from the wind, is long and wide and has a distinctive semicircular shape. It is bathed by a crystal-clear sea, that reflects shades of green and blue and the seabed slopes gently out towards the open sea.
It is an ideal place for people who love walking along the water’s edge. The beach offers numerous amenities and services, among which refreshment areas, windsurfing and kitesurfing schools, diving centres and beach equipment, boat, canoe and pedalo rentals. Around it, there are various accommodation facilities and also a nine-hole golf course. Behind it, the Mediterranean scrub, which is low and shaped by the wind, surrounds a beach with Caribbean characteristics. In front of it, you will see the islands of Serpentara and dei Cavoli in the background.
The splendid coastal scenery of the protected marine area of Capo Carbonara-Villasimius is endless and looks like a film set: to the west of the promontory, which represents the extreme southestern tip of the Island, are Porto sa Ruxi, Campus, Campolongu, Spiaggia del Riso and Cala Caterina; to the east, as well as Simius and the aforementioned Porto Giunco, Traias and Punta Molentis, there are another two havens of beauty and relaxation that stand out, namely rio Trottu and Manunzas. At the end of each intense day spent by the sea, every day on a different beach, in the evening, you can relax by strolling along the city streets, doing some shopping, and, for dinner, savouring the seafood specialities at the local restaurants.
