Sardinia

Share

Ostensibly Italian yet utterly unique, Sardinia is a wonderland of ancient history, stunning beaches, and melding cultures. Due to its location in the heart of the Mediterranean, the island has been at the centre of trade and conflict for millennia, and the cosmopolitan influence of all those visitors has morphed it into something truly special. The prevalence of the local language, Sarda, over Italian betrays the happy sense of independence they feel from their mainland cousins and is just one of the many aspects of the island that gives it a distinctive vibe. When you add a mixture of almost every terrain imaginable, from rugged mountains to fairy-tale-like woods and boggy marshland, it’s not hard to see why the locals love it so much.

Despite having a unique culture and mostly celebrating local festivals over Italian ones, Sardinians are far from insular or unwelcoming; they love visitors because they love to show off just how amazing their beautiful patch of land is. Holidaying in Sardinia has long been the preserve of other Italians coming over in late Summer, and as such it’s managed to keep maintain a low profile as a destination (internationally speaking) when compared to other Mediterranean islands, especially the often-overcrowded Greek holiday hotspots. If you’re a fan of stunning shoreline, delicious wine, and great people, then Sardinia won’t disappoint.

Weather

The weather in Sardinia isn’t as straightforward as one would think, due to the diverse terrain that makes up the island. Around the coast, the Autumn, Winter, and early Spring are relatively rainy but not too cold, although definitely not beach weather. In Summer, there’s little to no rain and the temperature climbs quite steadily. However, in the mountainous regions, the weather is a little drier but consistently colder, even with the warm Mediterranean summers.
