Poetto Beach

Overview

It is certainly the beach of the Cagliari people, very popular as a meeting place with friends even in the winter months. Popular as far back as the first decades of the 20th century (the historic Lido and D’Aquila baths date back to that time), Poetto is a white sand beach about 8 kilometres long, which separates the Molentàrgius salt pans and ponds from the sea. It is a succession of swimming establishments, kiosks, evening clubs that also organise events and restaurants serving fish and shellfish in a very informal way. It can be easily reached by public transport and even by bike: the Poetto is in fact served by a cycle path that runs a short distance from the sea and joins the beach at Quartu S. Elena, where the reserved bike path enters road traffic without protection. So come, not only for swimming, but also just for a coffee, or for an apéritif on the beach overlooking the sea, perhaps with that breeze that cools us down a bit on hot summer days.
