Del Riso Beach: a paradise 5 minutes away from the Marina

Villasimius is one of the most popular resorts in Southern Sardinia. It is well known for its characteristics, crystalline, clear waters and for its breathtaking view. The “Riso” (rice) beach is the most famous one, just after “Porto Giunco”, because of its unique scenario: located between Campolongu beach, the Marina and surrounded by hills, it almost looks like a lagoon thanks to its white rocks and the thick Mediterranean vegetation. The “Riso” beach peculiarity is the sand: the presence of granitic quartz, which resemble white rice grains, is quite rare throughout the island. Today, due to the natural erosion process, the number of quartz grains are decreasing, however the beach remains a destination worthing a visit.
