The city’s main beach is the so called "Poetto" which stretches along 5 miles from the "Sella del diavolo" to the outskirts of the neighbour city "Quartu S.E.".
During high season the beach becomes populated with locals and tourists. Apart from sunbathing and swimming it offers great opportunities for long walks and visits to its beach bars and restaurants, which offer a great choice of local seafood. On the rear side of the beach you may admire the giant Salinas park with its spectacular fauna and flora.
