One of the most magical as well as diversified stretches of coastline in Sardinia is to be found in Pula. Balmy beaches and coves, Roman excavations and blindingly white sand dunes endow the area with its richness. Not far from Pula is the beach of Nora
and a large Roman amphitheatre that lies directly on the sea and is used for a music festival in summer. The ruins of the amphitheatre are located at the tip of a small tongue of land jutting out into the sea that is dominated by a Spanish tower. This place is well worth a visit because of its lovely, open setting.
Porto d’Agumu is a beach with a lovely swimming bay and sparkling white sand. Twin Spanish watchtowers stand guard at either end of the beach, from which the archaeological excavations are visible.
The deep aqua waters and varied coastal landscape at Santa Margherita di Pula are perfect for relaxing strolls on the beach. In some seasons dry eel grass (a common phenomenon on natural beaches) grows in sandy Spiaggia Campumatta bay. But this in no way detracts from the beauty and serenity of this beach.
The renowned Chia dunes and beaches are only a few kilometres distant from Spiaggia Campumatta.
