Our resort’s private beach in Santa Margherita di Pula, which is the ideal starting point for exploring the surrounding seabed

While staying in our one-of-a-kind 5 and 4-star hotels, or in our 13 luxury villas by the sea, with the most exclusive services and amenities, you can also benefit from our resort’s private beach in Santa Margherita di Pula, which is the ideal starting point for exploring the surrounding seabed. Its peculiar position between Pula and Capo Spartivento, sheltered from the currents, makes it one of the most enchanting spots in the whole region: a long stretch of fine white sand that merges into crystal clear waters, all nestled in the intense lushness of the southern coast of Sardinia.

At Forte Village, you can either purchase or rent snorkelling equipment, while rental diving equipment is permitted for instructor-led dives only. The resort has a diving centre that offers diving lessons with qualified instructors, available for all levels, from beginner to advanced. The centre provides state-of-the-art equipment to guarantee the utmost safety and comfort during water activities.

Forte Village: A True Diving and Snorkelling Experience in Sardinia

Snorkelling and diving in Pula give you the opportunity to discover the authentic beauty of the Mediterranean. Thanks to its prime location, Forte Village Resort has many diving spots and snorkelling routes. An experienced instructor will guide you through a sea rich in marine life and colours, from the shallow waters near the coast to the more challenging offshore routes.

Many species inhabit Santa Margherita’s seabed: corals, groupers, snappers, sea breams, amberjacks, octopuses and cuttlefish. Most interesting are the wonderful Posidonia meadows that provide a habitat to many species of fish, invertebrates and other marine organisms, which make this site an important environmental protection area and a perfect destination for nature and ecotourism lovers. In the midst of such beauty and charm, your snorkelling and diving experience in Sardinia will be unforgettable. In this article, beginners can find an in-depth look at general information that should be read before diving.

Regardless of your skills, the Forte Village diving centre offers courses for all levels, from beginner to advanced. If you prefer snorkelling, the resort organises guided excursions to admire the beauty of the underwater world.
