Poetto Beach is a broad sandy beach which runs for 8km from Cagliari to Quart Sant’Elena. This lengthy beach is served by a tram with four stops at regular intervals along the beachfront.

The soft white sand, blue seas and excellent amenities make Poetta popular for sports and relaxation for all ages. As a city beach, it can be crowded with locals and visitors in summer and is nicknamed “Spiaggia dei Centomila” which means “beach of one hundred thousand”. However, it has not lost its natural beauty and is perfect for relaxing and enjoying lunch or cocktails at caf├ęs and restaurants in the gentle sea breeze.

The beach is safe and ideal for children to play in the shallow waters while older visitors can enjoy volleyball, beach tennis or go sailing and diving. There is a beach break at one end for surfing and kitesurfing and it’s good enough to host regular world-class events. You can also walk, bicycle, rollerblade or skateboard along the modern waterfront.
