There's a small cove at the bottom of the cliff which is great for swimming, and if you stay in a Villasimius holiday rental you can take your time and explore this peaceful spot. History buffs will also enjoy Museo Archeologico di Villasimius, a small local museum that has artefacts from archaeological digs showing the history of the town from prehistoric to Roman times and beyond.
