About us


Historically, the main activities of the Poetto have always been linked to the extraction of salt particularly since the beggining of the last century.

By the end of the 19th century, Cagliari‘s population began to move away from the town to pour into the coast and enjoy the "sea baths" alongside a breathtaking view of the surrounding white dunes.

In 1914, Gaetano Usai built the first structure of the Lido that tourists and locals are still enjoying today. Over the years, few restoration works took place but always with this in mind: to give the best to all those who visit Il Lido daily.

Today Il Lido has over 1000 beach cabins of different sizes, bathrooms and hot showers, sport and kids area, a marine first aid centre and shops, watersports and bike rental. Anyone can access our extensive Food and Beverage offer ranging from a seaside restaurant, a cocktail bar, a pizzeria, a disco club to areas specifically reserved for events.
