Poetto, Cagliari
(3.6/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
The main beach of Cagliari, Poetto likely takes its name from the Poet's Tower, a rock formation that rises in the distance. White dunes run along the shore for 8 kilometers (5 mi), running parallel to a strip of bars and cafes that provide nightlife for the beachgoers. Some of these offer live music, dance lessons, and karaoke. Arrange to visit Poetto and other attractions in Cagliari using our Cagliari itinerary planner.

  • I've been there as I ran the half marathon in a lovely autumnal Sunday and was quickly passion for this beach ...

  • If you come to Sardinia to the sea, well, don't go to Poetto. From Cagliari, is one of the nastiest of the island, which can be appreciated only in the winter months when it is deserted and water a little cleaner. In summer, a sausage factory, all of Cagliari and cities go to Poetto, you barely find space to put your towel on the sand and the water is dirty.
