From Villasimius take the road which leads to the sea and turns on the left northwards running close to the beautiful promontory of Punta Molentis. Soon you will reach the well-sheltered bay of Cala Pira. Not far from here there is Cala Sinzias, with its clear water and white sand. And then you can see the large gulf of Cosa Rei, which is divided by two beautiful large beaches of S. Giusta and Monte Nai. The large bay is delimited to the north by the rocky spur of Capo Ferrato, where you can find the beautiful small inlet of Porto Pirastu.

The coast is not very jagged and after Cala sa Figu and Portu de sà Ilixi there is a strech of sand backed by several large ponds, some of them feeded by the Flumendosa river. This long tract of coast ends up with Punta Tramezzo, north of Porto Corallo.

Driving along the panoramic road of Costa del Sud you will pass Capo Spartivento, made of jagged granite-rocks, on the top of which a light-house casts its powerful light on the seawater. Not far from here there is a pretty beach called Cala Cipolla, washed by clear emerald waters. From here on the coast lets the tourist enjoy the wonderful beaches of Chia, which are known forthe large white sand-dunes dotted with age-long junipers, but they are famous especially

for the marvellous colours of the sea, which change as the water goes deeper. The coast offers this wonderful landscape from Porto Campana, with its beach of s' Acqua, up to the Torre of Chia, with its beach bearing the same name. Here the surrounding nature is untoched by the hand of the ma and it is a wonderful marriage of earth and sea.

From Monte S. Elia (S. Elia Mount) in the Golfo di Quartu (Gulf of Quartu) a large strip of sand leads to the Saline of Cagliari.
The Poetto and the beach of Quartu are in the same sandy curve which is more then five kilometers long. Its large sandy shore offer a view of rare beauty and brightness.
Its sandy shoal shines with numerous blended colours wich grow darker as the water goes deeper. You can also see the famous legendary rocky spur of Sella del Diavolo.

After landing in Calasetta from Carloforte and after crossing S. Antioco and its bridge which joins the village to the mainland, you will get to S. Giovanni Suergiu. Take the truck road number 195. When you reach the small village of S. Anna Arresi turn right towards the sea, which is not far from here. You are now in Porto Pino which is famous for its beaches with impalpable

White sand and bordered by numerous evergreen pine-trees. The coast runs to Capo Teulada, where we reach Cala Piombo, Porto Zafferano, Porto Scudo, Porto Piraso and Porto Teulada. These beaches, famous for their large white sandy shores, are washed by unpolluted clear water. After crossing Porto Teulada the road follow the winding stretch of the coast, offering some suggestive partials views on the gulf. You will get then to the majestic Capo Malfatano, on the top of which rises the tower bearing the same name. On its left, facing the sea, there is the deep bay of Porto Malfatano.

Leave the beach of Quartu behind you and drive eastwards on a bumpy road which runs along the coast climbing on the side of several hills and showing a beautiful view. Cala Regina with its pebbly beach and its tower overlooking the bay, is very beautiful. You will then reach the warm and sheltered gulf of Carbonara bordered by the tower of Capo Buoi and Punta S. Caterina. The beaches of Cala di Torre Vecchia, Cala Tramezzo, Cala S. Caterina and Cala Burroni are very nice. Here you are in the area of Villasimius, which is mainly famous for the wonderful beach of Simius, after Porto Giunco to the east of Capo Carbonara.
