The beautiful beach of Simius protected from the sea streams and especially inhabited with marine plants and creatures. The temperature of the local water is slightly higher than the other beaches, this is due to the geographical location of the area.

According to historical data, they were created in the Stone Age. Also here in the square you encounter "nuraghe" - fortified dwellings of metal, built in the form of towers, they were called "the tomb of giants."

Cape Carbonara is known among other things for its old castle, which was built in the XIV century and then rebuilt in the XVI century by the decree of Philip II in order to strengthen the coastal zone of the city from the attack of the Turks. From the Campulongu  beach you can reach the Porto Junko tower, which was built in the XVI century from local granite.
