Fodor's Review

Only 5 km (3 miles) southeast of the city center and easily accessible by a quick bus ride, Poetto Beach is one of the most enticing spots to relax in summer for both locals and tourists. Its shallow and clean turquoise waters stretch for some 8 km (5 miles), and the beach is lined with cafés, restaurants, snack stands, and parks. Beach lounging chairs and umbrellas are available for rent for €10–€12. From the large, sandy shores, you can admire the pink flamingos that nest in the marshy reeds of the nearby Molentargius lagoon. If you're in Cagliari, this postcard setting is a must. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
