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.
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.
