Poetto, Cagliari

3.5
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Cagliari attractions like Poetto can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Visited the first day of the week of ferragosto, certainly the best organized beach of the area ... so many resorts equipped with showers and bars (definitely not Rimini or riccione but at least are equipped), on the public beach there are also free showers ... the first day I saw her xó gives hope that the sea is not so everywhere, certainly did not live up to other areas.

  • Visited early on in our holiday very crowded and featureless. Crappy bars. Crammed with people along entire length.  more »
  • We probably weren't in the beautiful place on this beach, very busy and described by some as very beautiful. We have been to the far East, full of algae water, brownish, hints of sewers so blah for this side of the beach

Where to stay in Cagliari

Enjoy some of the best beaches on Sardinia by booking your stay at a seafront hotel in Cagliari. Though quite pricey at the height of the tourist season, waterfront hotels conveniently located just minutes from the airport offer access to private swimming pools, spas, fitness centers, fine restaurants, and secure parking areas. To experience the authentic spirit of Sardinia without breaking the bank, consider staying at a private house or a family-run inn farther away from the tourist-driven town center.
