Santa Margherita di Pula is a tiny seaside commune often associated with its larger neighbour, Pula. Situated just a few miles along the coast from scenic Chia, the village is a similar beachfront beauty, offering a sandy bay and just a scattering of buildings, set in front of verdant forest.
There’s not much else going on around here, which makes for a wonderfully tranquil beach break. One of the best reasons to visit Santa Margherita di Pula is for its location – the village is a great base from which to see some of Sardinia’s best sights. From the ancient pre-Roman town of Nora to the scenic streets of Pula, there’s plenty to see and do within a short drive.

When to go
Sardinia is a summer destination, with the season generally running from May to early October. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August and this is when the towns and beaches are at their busiest. However, Sardinia also enjoys a mild climate in spring and autumn with temperatures rarely going beneath 20 degrees which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too. May, June and September are ideal months to visit for those wanting to avoid the busiest crowds and still enjoy warm weather.
At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.
