The beach goes on forever

This is the main Cagliari beach and all the locals use it frequently. What that means is that the first 50m of the beach are completely packed, but the rest is practically empty... read more

This is the main Cagliari beach and all the locals use it frequently. What that means is that the first 50m of the beach are completely packed, but the rest is practically empty. There are small beach bars every so meters so it's good if you want refreshments to get away from the sun. Don't expect any shade though, so... More

Poetto is a district of Cagliari. You can easily take a bus from the downtown area to get to any number of bus stops along the VERY long beach at Poetto. The water is warm, clean, with modest waves, and the people are all there to have a good time. I went every day and loved every minute of it.

The beach is fine but that said is nothing special but the number of people on the beach was horrendous. We were there on a Wednesday in early July and as a family of 6 had approx 3 square metres of space to ourselves.... We were literally packed as tight as sardines..... Give this one a miss... There are so... More

We visited Poetto on four seperate occasions, once on the public beach, twice to D'Aguilla lido and once to La Lido. Although a little pricey the facilities at the lidos are excellent (umbrella, sunbeds, showers, etc.) and the beach itself is in a wonderful position, catching a lot of sun, with access to the Mediterranean sea.

We had a nice day at Poetto beach. If you're looking for dazzling sardinian beaches, then this is not the most impressive (although it is very long), but the good thing about it is the fact that it is so easy to reach by bus. Many locals go here on weekends.

I was disappointed by Poetto's beach. Pebbles and no shallow water. There was no atmosphere either, maybe due to the season (end of May) and to the fact that the Lungomare is not easily accessible because of roadworks.

there are quite a few reasonable guesthouses and BnBs in area. The beach is fairly long and frequented by locals jogging and skating (Matiida was into skateboarding practice for surf training). I was there off season, oct/nov so not a lot of beach action, and some places closed. Nice to sit in less crowded areas and drink a coffee watching... More
