The Opera Beach Arena is situated in the stunning city of Cagliari, the capital of the Italian island of Sardinia. The city airport, known as Cagliari Elmas Airport, has direct links to many major international airports, and getting around the city is easy with a full public transport network of a metro, local and extra-urban buses. The Opera Beach Arena itself is located directly on the coastal shores of the city, directly next to the ‘Golfo di Quartu S.E. (Fronte Torre)’ bus stop. There are also a number of parking spaces along the road if you prefer to rent a car.


Cagliari offers an outstanding selection of beautiful and affordable hotels and apartments, which show off the city and give you a sun-kissed Sardinian experience. Airbnb rentals offer a great way for groups to relax in apartments around the location at cheaper individual prices than many hotels. We recommend booking your accommodation early to ensure you get the best chillout spot for you to enjoy the city and beach.


Cagliari in Sardinia is a captivating coastal city with thriving nightlife, rich history, serene beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters. The main beach, Poetto, stretches for 8km from Sella del Diavolo to the coastline of Quartu Sant’Elena, and is the perfect way to relax after nights at the Opera Beach Arena. Incredible views can be seen from many points around the Cagliari area, including the hilltop Castello, a medieval walled quarter, and the Sella del Diavolo mountain. Cagliari is overflowing with restaurants, cafes, shops and other establishments to ensure that you never need to go far to find what you need, and to experience the authentic Italian cuisine. If that is not enough, the city offers incredible historical attractions for you to enjoy, such as the Bastione Saint Remy, the Quartiere Castello, the Santuario e Basilica di Bonaria and the Chiesa di San Michele among many others.
