    Good water
    The beach was great compared to my local beach. During my stay, it was also crowded. I loved being able to see the devil’s saddle. I decided to stay at one of the clubs for my umbrella and lounge. The beach was convenient to my hotel.

    Cagliari’s best one
    This is our home beach, changes shape and color frequently but water has been consistent around 15 degrees. It’s all still vacant and without umbrella / long chair charges. Surprisingly cleaned water without any rubbish !!

    Great beach by bus just make sure you get ticket in advance.
    Bus PF and PQ takes you here for €1.30. Buses are approx every 10 mins. The beach itself is about 20 mins by bus from the port and a very beautiful beach with 2 sun loungers and umbrellas for €18 half day. Bring your own snacks and drinks as there is not much there. Beware of a ticket scam on the bus where the driver doesn’t take your fare. Buy your ticket in advance from a newspaper shop. If Driver says “no ticket” do not board the bus. Ensure you validate your ticket in the machine at the back of the bus. The beach buses are monitored by inspectors consistently for people without a ticket. €53 fine!

    Just OK
    Spent the day here from the cruise ship. Took bus PF from downtown for around a euro. Got off at the first beach stop and rented two chairs and an umbrella for 20 euros. It is a nice sandy beach with pretty good water clarity, but they pack the people on the beach like sardines with little space to walk. It’s all beach resorts as far as I walked. We left around 2 and walked through town.

    Nice beach but could get windy!
    We enjoyed the beach even if it was windy. Sardinia could get really windy. And no mountains to shield you from the wind (unlike Mykonos) so it might be a deal breaker at times. The water is clear but cold even in early July. There wasn’t also a lot of people during this period.

Walk the beach and I must say its is not great. Sure it is long but the buildings along side are old and some are even abandoned. All the courts with large net around its, make is it an eye sore. The water is nice. I guess not bad for a city beach, They would need to clean up to improve the experience

We visited Poetto on two separate occasions. It's easy to get to from Cagliari city centre on buses PQ and PF.
The part nearest the marina end was the most attractive for me with its rugged towering cliff face.
However we also visited the end closest to the nature reserve with the flamingos.
At this end there are lots of little food stalls selling hot fast food and drinks on the road near to the large children's play park so you don't have to pay the more expensive prices of the beach front cafes and bars.

The sand was warm - and the beach just went on for miles. Gets busy on the weekends - especially if weather is nice. There was a fair amount of sea grass washed up. Not too many shells - but also no garbage or glass!!

One of the more beautiful beaches I have ever been one. It's very big, so finding space is almost always guaranteed. You can also very easily access it with public transport. Do bring your own umbrella though, as this seems to be practiced by everyone.

Very nice, clean and well kept coastal area. White sand and clear sea which stretches for miles. Also a very good (and flat) jogging and cycling route if you enjoy that. Not that many restaurants for such a large area and the ones I went in struggled with English...but nothing Google Translate couldn't fix.

Parking wasn't a problem but it was low season. Its a nice enough beach but to be honest, not as clean as we had already experienced further round the coast at Villasimius. There was a lot of floating sea debris making the water dark compared to clean clear crystal turquoise water where you can see all the fish at other East Coast beaches.
For anyone with a car, drive an hour out of Cagliari and have a much nicer beach/sea experience.

In our short stay in Sardinia, we visited this beach twice and it’s absolutely beautiful. The water is lovely to swim in and is clear as the day. There’s a great bicycle track that runs alongside the 8km beach which is also fab to do. There’s plenty of little bars and restaurants, and also public toilets. A great place to spend the day.

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 along the beach and plenty of water sports available.
