Originally a fishing village, in recent years Villasimius has become a very important tourist destination in the South of Sardinia. The surrounding mountains, the sea and scattered islets, the beaches and the crystalline waters make this spot a very picturesque place indeed. The small town offers a vast choice of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops and the colourful and lively nightlife make it popular with the younger generations as well. Most facilities in this corner of Sardinia are geared around the summer season, however the area is nonetheless charming in the winter months.
Not far from the town there is a recently built tourist harbour with many facilities from where to explore the coastline and its natural hidden beauties.
Villasimius is about 50 minutes drive from Cagliari, the scenic route can make the journey very enjoyable but beware of traffic at the height of summer.
