Oltre il Promontorio, zona Cala Mosca

The Beach of Poetto is considered a point of reference both by people from Cagliari and by tourists, a place where you can  not only spend a beautiful sea day, but also organize an amusing evening with your friends. In fact there are lots of restaurants, bars and nightspots scattered here and there along the beach, and they represent different ways of spending a few hours in complete relaxation.

For example the “Neptune Beach” (info bar 392/5695883; info beach 392/5696048 )is open day and night and  is one of the favorite spots of tourists and regular customers who love music and who started chosing this part of the beach as a part of their holiday long ago. During the day it works as a bar and a restaurant, but it also offers single and double sun beds and beach umbrellas for hire. The restaurant is open in the evening, too, it is in front of the sea and it offers  “à la carte” menus including meat or fish dishes and typical recipes from Cagliari.

Another place in Viale Poetto you shouldn’t miss is called “Insomnia Cafè”. Situated near the “Aquila” bathing establishment, this place has been recently modernized and widened but it has an ancient tradition. It is furnished in tropical style and it is the ideal place to taste a good fruit cocktail or to organize an unusual dinner mixing Caribbean and traditional Mediterranean delicatessen. It includes three large rooms, one of them is situated outside, and it can hold a hundred people.

Not far from there, at Calamosca, you can also choose “Le Terrazze”, just overlooking the sea. It is the right place for an aperitif or a quick meal, but it can also be the ideal context for an important date, a romantic evening or an anniversary. Finally there is “La Paillote” in Via Calamosca, a bathing establishment which includes a restaurant, an American bar and a solarium.
