Decent beach only a short bus ride from the center of Cagliari

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

This is Cagliari's seaside. It's a 15/20 minute bus ride from the city centre. You may be best staying on the bus for about half a mile once it reaches the beach as there are a lot of members-only clubs at the city end. We went on a hot Sunday morning and it was very busy, but the beach itself... More

We visited in May 2015 and currently the area is bit of a building site. The road next to the beach is closed and littered with building rubble; it looks as though they're resurfacing the road and building a new pavement (only half of which is currently finished). There are a few derelict buildings along the way (and even on... More

The Poetto is Cagliari's city beach where all the locals go when they feel the need to soak up the sun and top up that golden Mediterrenean tan. A number of kiosks and bars are dotted along the way so you will never go thirsty. The closest section to the city (Prima Fermata) is the trendiest and close to Marina... More
