Boat trips to the offshore islands are available from the new harbour and there are also scuba diving excursions to sunken ships off the coast. The Villasimius area, which has been decalred as a marine nature preserve, is well known among divers for its rich variety of marine flora and fauna.
In Villasimius and the surrounding area there are archaeological remains of Phoenician culture, as well as Roman necropolises. Spiaggia del Riso, a 54 square kilometer area, contains stone age tombs carved into the rock face (domus de jana) as well as numerous individual, or clusters of, nuraghi and a so-called giant’s tomb (tomba di giganti).
This village is a mini-paradise of lively nightlife in July and August, and it has a plentiful supply of hotels, restaurants, pizzerias and boutiques.
