Poetto beach is a 10 km long beach, 200 meters wide, full of bar, comfty places and perfect Sardinian sea. I suggest to spend a full day, and to come back in the night for discos and beautifull locals next to the sea. Perfect place...More

This is a long stretching beach. It has a strange (eerie) feeling with a lot of unused and damaged buildings along the beach. Perfectly lovely for a walk in the sand and paddle in the sea It is a place locals come to run and...More

Poetto has the most beautiful beach, but not that much to do in October. One beach side restaurant had hireable sunbeds, which I was perfect as it was such a hot day, with cocktails and food available. Only let down was another restaurant was very...More

This isn't the sort of beach that we like as we go more for a quiet location with few amenities. However, this is a great beach if you like to have facilities and be close to town. It's huge and I can't imagine it ever...More

Just a twenty minute bus ride from central Cagliari (using the PF or PQ line), you'll arrive at a stunning Sardinian beach. Soft white sands - clear blue sea with no high-rise horrors around. The only minor niggle is the stream of beach-pedellars constantly bothering...More

The beach was nice - the water was clear, but there was definitely an odd smell in the air and the surrounding area wasn't as nice as other parts of the island.

You can get the local bus from next to the train station in Via Roma. I think it was the 5ZE price is about 1.50 - 2 Euros they run every 15 minutes and takes about 10 minutes from the station
