Fodor's Review

Only 3 miles southeast of the city center and easily accessible by a quick bus ride, Poetto Beach is one of the hottest spots to relax in summer for both locals and tourists. Its shallow and clean turquoise waters stretch for some 5 miles, and the beach is lined with cafés, restaurants, shops, snackstands, and parks. Beach lounging chairs and umbrellas are available for rent from a variety of vendors for about €10–12. From the large sandy shores, you can admire the

red flamingos that nest in the marshy reeds of the nearby Molentargius lagoon. If you're in Cagliari, then this postcard setting is a must. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: walking.
