  • The beach is stunning although in October the water is rather chilly. With 8km there are plenty of spots to pick. If you are a solo traveller then take the bus or call a taxi. Lots of places to eat.....  more »

  • Amazing beach. Well deserved by bus
  • Great winter option for people from the northern part of the world. Holidays in the winter is 16 degrees Celsius, it is not snowing, you can take a bath in the sea, you will do Vitamin D. In the area a well-ordered shop. I honestly recommend.
  • Very long Beach with bike lane and footpath and some nice restaurant. Even on busy day you can find a place to lay down on the sand alone. There are also lots of public facilities (benches, toilets). The only drawback is the lack of green areas.
  • Super nice for kiting. Thanks Kitegeneration team
  • Super long beach in Cagliari. Very dandy throughout. Some spot are more Stony at the the extreme ends. Generally more busy closer you the city so we always headed a little further up the beach. Parasols and deck chairs available though pricey. Bring your own if you can. Good bud service there and back. Can be busy.
