Flamingos, heron, waders and seabirds can be seen in their hundreds along this part of the coast and at Porto Nuovo, with its long jetty, you can pull off the road and walk along a raised path to several bird watching hides.
Pula, where many of our properties and hotels can be found, is a bustling agricultural and tourist town. The long sandy coastline of Santa Margherita and the majestic Sulcis mountain range are just some of the varied landscapes that this charming town has to offer. By night the central square is throbbing with locals and visitors enjoying the warm summer evenings in one of the cafés and restaurants or just browsing the many shops which stay open until very late. Also not to be missed is the Tuesday market, abundant in fabulous fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, clothes, toys and beach equipment. The nearby coast at Nora offers one of the best examples in Sardinia of an ancient Roman provincial city with temples, baths and well-preserved black, white and ochre mosaic floors, which still evoke their former glory in their stunning seaside setting.
Chia and the Costa del Sud
Better still, you virtually have the road to yourself to admire these breathtaking views. From Chia the road turns inland briefly and as you drop once more towards the coast you are presented with a breathtaking view of small islands.
Chia is a popular holiday spot that also attracts water sports' enthusiasts, particularly kite and windsurfers. The sea is often dotted with colourful sails bobbing on the ocean and if you happen to be in the area around Easter, The Chia Classic windsurfing competition is held here.
