Sardinia Holidays - Stunningly scenic Mediterranean island

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, 125 miles west of Italy. Rich in history and culture, it has a wonderfully scenic coastline. Accommodation ranges from comfortable villas to country inns and luxury hotels. Nightlife is relatively quiet and tends to centre on romantic restaurants and cosy bars rather than lively discos. The Costa Esmeralda has a selection of distinctly upmarket restaurants and livelier nightlife.

Explore a fabulous coastline

Sardinia is famous for its terrific sandy beaches with beautifully clear, turquoise water. There are plenty of idyllic, isolated coves and unspoilt beaches for those willing to explore, such as those La Maddalena National Park.

Holidays in Sardinia are particularly popular with watersports enthusiasts, with excellent water-skiing, windsurfing and surfing. Sailing holidays centre on Olbia and the spectacular Costa Esmeralda in the north and diving holidays also enjoy a good reputation. Sardinia also offers first-class golf, superb fishing and horse riding. Walkers and cyclists have a wealth of fascinating routes to enjoy.

Mountain villages and gorgeous harbour towns

The Sardinian interior is unspoilt, with wooded valleys, wild mountains and picturesque traditional villages. Popular excursions include Porto Ferro Beach, the ruins at Oristano, delightful towns like Nuoro and Sassari, and Cagliari with its ancient ruins.

Weather in Sardinia

During July and August the average high temperature is 30°C and it can be humid, which is not too much of a problem if you’re enjoying water sports, but for golfers, hikers and cyclists the spring, late summer or early autumn is probably a better time to visit.

The Sardinian sea not only looks beautiful but it stays warm all year. Even in the coldest months, January to March, the sea temperature does not fall below 13 °C. From June to September it’s 21-23 °C and in July and August it’s up 24 °C. The other factor that helps make Sardinia so popular with water sports enthusiasts is the sea breeze. Winds such as the Sirocco, the Mistral and the Levant vary from coast to coast and have made Sardinia a top destination for surfers, windsurfers and sailors.
