THE WEATHER IN SARDINIA
A lot of sunlight and little rain, in Sardinia you will get the chance to enjoy temperate Mediterranean island weather. Sea breezes mitigate the summer heat along the coasts, and the temperature never goes below zero even in winter. In the inland areas, the temperature is lower by a few degrees and it snows on the mountains in the cold season. Rain is rare everywhere, especially in the summer.
The winter is very short, the coldest months are January and February, but along the coast the temperature rarely drops below freezing and almost never snows. In the centre, temperatures drop a few degrees below zero at night and snow is concentrated in the mountains, rarely even whitening the roofs of mountain villages.This is the period of carnivals and the most traditional festivals of the island.
Autumn arrives late in Sardinia; temperatures exceed 20 ° and the sea water maintains heat from the summer. The days get shorter but it does not rain and the sun is always high. On the coast it is still warm enough to swim, although in the evening the temperature is cooler. While waiting for the winter you can still enjoy the outdoors. This is the best time to discover the centre of Sardinia with a dip into its traditions and more ancient culture.
In the spring the temperature reaches 20 degrees and rainy days become more rare. The sea begins to heat up, the days get longer and nature has its best colours; this is the season of the first swims, of sun and sea, and the active holiday including trekking from the mountains to the sea and motorbike or cycling, sailing and surfing routes.
