Santa Margherita di Pula is only 45 km southwest of Sardinia's largest city Cagliari on Sardinia's southern coast, and is mainly known because of the ruins of the first Phoenician ancient city on the island, the town of Nora. The town is located circa four kilometers from the municipal capital of Pula and has a pretty historic center.
The Phoenicians were people who came from the South Eastern Mediterranean region, known today as Lebanon and Syria. You can visit the museum Patroni Pula, if you are interested in seeing the relics that have been found in Nora. Santa Margherita di Pula was built around the church of Santa Martire and a small farming community, which also lives from tourism in the area. The same as several of its neighboring towns do it.
In Santa Margherita di Pula, you find even for Sardinia exceptionally beautiful sandy beaches, such as Punta d'Agumu, Foxi, Sali, Cala d'Ostia and the stunning clear blue waters of Cala Verde. The coastal road is also incredibly beautiful. Just pull over for a refreshing drink and enjoy the nature.
