There were many shipwrecks in the area between Torre delle Stelle and Villasimius and the remains of the ships are often visible under water. In Cala Sinzias, at about 30 metres’ depth the remains of a Roman ship dating back to the I century AD can still be seen on the sandy bottom; it sank with a cargo of building material. Near Isola dei Cavoli (the island of cabbages) is the wreck of a XV century ship, probably Aragonese, carrying cannons and glass-lined decorative tiles. In Torre delle Stelle and beyond Torre de su Fenogu, are the wrecks of the “Isonzo” and the “Loredan” that were sunk by a British submarine during the Second World War.

The water is crystal clear and the sea beds very different making this area the ideal place to discover the Mediterranean Sea. Snorkelling lovers will be fascinated by the many marine species and by the Posidonia prairies. Posidonia is the basis of this marine ecosystem and it is a plant (not an algae) adapted to live underwater. Its leaves are long, green ribbons measuring over a metre in length.Another typical feature of this area are Tafoni, granite boulders shaped by the salt water penetrating within and creating cavities whose size slowly increases, changing the shape of the rocks. You will be able to see some also by Punta Molentis (Villasimius) and Cala Delfino (Torre delle Stelle).
