The region of Sarrabus is also called "the garden of Sardinia for the presence of many citrus trees that grow lush and full of lemons, oranges, tangerines and clementines, thanks to the microclimate that makes this region one of the most productive of the entire island of Sardinia. There are long beaches.'s Start from the beach Capo Ferrato, not easily accessible due to road. The beach is not equipped but worth visiting to see the crescent of fine white sand lapped by the waters clear.

Capo Ferrato past we are facing one of the most popular tourist areas not only in the province of Cagliari but of Sardinia: Costa Rei, a strip of golden sand 8 kilometers long, with hotels, campsites, apartments, farmhouses and private homes are an important tourism product.

To the south of the beach of Costa Rei, is the beach of Cala Pira, dominated by a Spanish tower, accessible by a path that ends in a cove surrounded by a hill and a series of rocks and cliffs, surrounded by palm trees, pine trees and Mediterranean scrub. Opposite stands the Island of Serpentara thin, topped by the tower of St Louis.

Going to Punta Molentis is the long beach of Simius, which hides the pond Notteri during the summer dry completely. This beach, one of the most beautiful of Sardinia, it closes with Cala Giunco. For those who prefer sand to the rocks there is the beach of Porto Pirastu. This stretch of repair is high, discontinuous, rocky, interrupted by small indentations from sheltered spot where they hatch Mediterranean beaches formed by rocks and stones burnished plates polished by the sea.

From the top of Capo Carbonara is entirely dominates this coastline, with its pink granite rocks, stands opposite the island of Cavoli, whose name probably derives from the name of the crab Cagliari, destination must for the beauty and clarity of its seabed. The island, entirely granite, it is interesting not only for the great lighthouse, but also to flora and fauna especially, that you can count on gabbiano course (protected species), the piro-piro and sull'occhiocotto.

Near Capo Carbonara appears near the port of Villasimius, a village with excellent facilities and an urban center that provides grounds for appeal to the many craft shops and boutiques. Continuing to meet Cagliari sea well-known as Capo Boi, Solanas, Torre delle Stars and Capitana.
