Cagliari Turismo, the tourist portal of the City of Cagliari
This element belongs to the categories: Beaches
Poetto Beach faces the Gulf of the Angels, on the southern coast of the island.
Even though the white sand dunes and the multi coloured casotti ( wooden constructions near the sea) belong to the past, the sandy shore preserves an incredible charm, enriched by the Promontory of the Devil's Saddle which dominates the port of Marina Piccola. These elements, together with the closeness to the city and the entertainment offered by traditional baretti (wooden kiosks where it is possible to eat and drink something), make Poetto the favourite place for the inhabitants of Cagliari during summer season and also in any other sunny day in the rest of the year. The beachfront area offers also different kinds of services, as bed&breakfast, guesthouses, beach resorts, diving centres and surf schools.
