Sitting about a half an hour’s drive from Cagliari is the subdivision of Santa Margherita di Pula which is part of the larger commune of Pula. Pula is and has been popular with tourists for quite a while now with summer seeing the highest numbers. The magnificent sunny weather, sandy shores and slow pace of life in this Sardinian resort probably have something to do with it. Most people who make their way to this corner of the world aim to achieve perfect relaxation and they are rarely ever disappointed. To help them get into the mood of things are a selection of accommodation options including exclusive villas of different sizes with immaculately trimmed compounds. There are also some charming cottages with nice views of the beach as well as seafront houses.
Milking the gorgeous Mediterranean sun as much as they can is the aim of most visitors here and for that reason lounging underneath a parasol or leisurely strolls along the soft sand is how most of them pass their holiday. Munching on some of the most delicious seafood visitors have ever set knife and fork on is also a good way to pass time in this part of Sardinia. In restaurants like La Bottega del Mare visitors will be treated to delicacies that are fresh from the fishermen’s nets at highly affordable prices. Those who’ve visited this establishment often remark on how good the octopus is.
Visitors should be sure to ask for a guided tour of the ruins at Nora. This archaeological site contains some fascinating relics (including its own amphitheatre and some well-preserved mosaics) that will no doubt intrigue history buffs. On top of that the place is surrounded by a scenic beach with lagoons as well as fields of wild flowers and olive groves.
Like the rest of the province of Cagliari in which this locale is found, the weather is simply superb. It is nice and warm for most of the year with July and August being the hottest months. These peak summer months see highs exceeding 30°C so a bottle of sunscreen and a cap are highly recommended if you will heading there at this time of the year. Winter temperatures are rarely ever harsh with lows remaining above 5°C. Cagliari generally doesn’t experience much rainfall and the rainiest days are limited to autumn and winter.
Visitors to this locale will usually fly into Rome or Milan and then get a chartered plane there or simply board a Ryanair or Alitalia flight (in the case of some European cities) directly to the Elmas Airport in Cagliari. This airport is less than half an hour from Santa Margherita di Pula and newly arrived tourists can either make this trip by taxi or hire a vehicle from local car hire firms or more recognized names such as Hertz, Budget and Avis.
