Punta Molentis is a small peninsula with a water rich in shades of blue and green, a very white sand and a low and sandy bottom, surrounded by granite rocks and green trees and guarded by a nuraghe on the hill.
THE ROCK OF PAN DI ZUCCHERO
The rock of Pan di Zucchero is located in Masua in the south western part of Sardinia. it is about 90 kilometers from Villa Flumini, but it is worth it because it is a beautiful area.

It’s 133 meters high and is the highest in the Mediterranean area. It is a postcard, difficult to describe, it is easier to go and see it live!
Tuerredda beach is one of the most famous in the southern Sardinia area, it’s super photographed and admired, you will be enchanted by the whiteness of the beach and the colors of the waters, which has reflections ranging from dark blue to light blue. From Villa Flumini it takes about an hour to get there and from the last stretch of road you take to get there you can start enjoying a breathtaking view and you can’t wait to take a dip.
A perfect name for this wonderful beach which is located a short distance from Villa Flumini: it’s one of those you meet along the road to go to Villasimius: it’s Mari Pintau, “the painted sea”. A sea in which brush strokes of light blue and blue alternate as if they came out of a painter’s palette.
