Pula is situated in an excellent location along the southwestern coast of the Golfo degli Angeli. Pula is an important agricultural center, which during the summer doubles the number of its inhabitants thanks to the beach tourism in its magnificent beaches, and it is also well known for the important archaeological area of Nora and other archaeological sites dating back to the Nuragic era. Its territory is rich of beaches and coves that come in succession along the coast, a few kilometers from Villa I Pini and other Luxury Holidays in Sardinia Villas. We have selected for you 5 beaches, the ones you cannot miss!
Let’s start with the picturesque beach of Nora, located near the archaeological site, at the foot of the Capo di Pula promontory, a spit of land reachable from the mainland by a narrow isthmus, which juts out into the sea, where you can swim on both sides. The beach is bordered by a cliff and is made up of medium grain white sand, bathed by a clear sea and a particularly shallow seabed. In those days when the sea is flat and clear, you can see on the seabed the underwater ruins. The beach is accessible via the Strada Statale 195 towards Pula and it is easy to find following the road signs.
The beach of Santa Margherita di Pula is very large, with an agricultural inland, an intensive agriculture and a big agricultural and tourist village, as well as international hotels. The beach, with a pristine nature is very impressive, composed of a sandy shoreline, fine and gray hues with magnificent pink and clear sea with shallow waters. The locality is characterized by the presence of different beaches, which come in succession for about 5 kilometers, parallel to the road. In these beaches, it is common to find wonderful waves, especially in the hours following the afternoon; also for this reason it is a destination for surfers, windsurfers and kite surfers.
A place suitable for children, thanks to shallow waters and a fine sandy beach, is certainly Cala Bernardini, surrounded by Mediterranean scrub and bathed by a beautiful crystal clear and emerald sea. The added value is certainly given by the various coves which come in succession in the shoreline, very suggestive and wild, ideal for those who want to venture out looking for coves to explore.
The Porto d’Agumu beach, is also close to Pula, located in the inlet a little further south from Nora. It is a beach of medium size, characterized by a white-gray sand coastline, quite rough and rocky, bathed by a clean sea and a seabed from greenish hues. The beach is a white sandy cove, enclosed in both sides by two imposing Spanish towers from which you have a wonderful view on the ruins.
Another very nice beach, located close to the beach of Nora is the beach of Su Guventeddu, preceded by a pine forest, and ideal for families with children who can have a break during the hottest hours. The beach is characterized by thin and white sand, shallow water and a few rocks, especially suitable for children and for diving enthusiasts, thanks to its crystal clear waters.
