About Spiaggia di Campulongu
Campulongu beach (Spiaggia di Campulongu) lies just a little over a kilometer southeast of Campus beach and is one of the more extensive beaches in the area (900 meters). Situated near the cozy seaside village of Campulongu in the municipality of Villasimius, it faces southwest, looking straight onto Baia di Carbonara, offering views of Marina di Villasimius in the distance. Campulongu beach is situated in a well-developed urban area that offers several hotels, campings, restaurants, and a golf club nearby. The clear blue waters of Spiaggia di Campulongu are rich in all kinds of fish, making it a good spot for snorkeling. It’s a popular surfing spot and suitable for children. What’s unique about this beach is that a pine forest practically backs the entire stretch of sand. On a scorching and sunny day, especially in July or August, it’s a good idea to cool off under the trees for a while – especially if you have children. Dunes back other parts of Spiaggia di Campulongu, especially in the middle and to the south side. Please remember, Spiaggia di Campulongu is in a protected area; these are ecologically very sensitive. Many fragile species can be found in the dunes, such as Mediterranean coastal snails, ground-nesting birds (Kentish plover), caterpillars, and beetles. Signposts at the entrance of the beach will remind you of this.
