What to see and do in this beautiful Sardinian location

Pula and the surrounding area

A holiday between sea, nature, archaeology and fun.

Pula is one of the most popular and sought-after tourist destinations in the south-west of Sardinia. This is because the bustling town offers a holiday that embraces the sea, unspoilt nature, history and entertainment.

Pula is a centre of over 7000 inhabitants just over 30 km from Cagliari and therefore easily reachable for those arriving in Sardinia by plane or by ship. In summer, it is famous for its nightlife, with shows and aperitifs in the picturesque old town, which can also be reached on foot from our resort. If you like to eat in a different place every day, wander among the artisan workshops, boutiques and clubs, listen to some good music over a drink, Pula is the perfect destination for your holiday in Sardinia.

On Tuesday mornings, you can shop for local products and handicrafts in the Pula Market, and then perhaps stop by the Archaeological Municipal Museum, where some prized artefacts from the nearby archaeological site of Nora are kept. For a different afternoon, you can visit the Pula Adventure Park, an amusement park surrounded by nature with aerial courses designed for adults and children.

An excursion to Cagliari is also not to be missed, which you can discover beginning in the district of Castello, located on a hill and enclosed by the mediaeval walls. The San Remy and Santa Croce bastions will reward you with breathtaking views, and in this area we also recommend that you stop at one of the many places to sample the culinary delights of southern Sardinia.

Also worth a visit are the Cathedral of Santa Maria and the Cittadella dei Musei with the National Archaeological Museum, as well as the remains of the Roman Amphitheatre and a stroll through the Marina, Stampace and Villanova neighbourhoods.
From the port, you can also take a bus to the Molentargius-Saline Regional Natural Park, populated by beautiful pink flamingos, and the famous Poetto city beach.

Another stop we recommend is the Mercato di San Benedetto, Italy's largest covered municipal market and one of the largest in Europe. Here you will find not only the gastronomic delights of Sardinia, but also fresh fish and local meats, and experience the authentic atmosphere of the city.

There are many other attractions around Pula, including many cycling routes, the famous golf course of Is Molas, the archaeological site of Nora and the Monte Arcosu Nature Reserve.
