If it's summer, many visitors prefer to anchor at one of the coastal resorts. One such option is the Santa Margherita di Pula, lying on the Gulf of Angels some 36km (22 miles) south of Cagliari. From here, you can visit the capital city on an easy day trip for shopping and sights. Pine woods skirt this pristine coast, and the sandy beaches and cliffs extend for 8km (5 miles).
