What will the weather be like...
Sardinia has a superb climate for a summer family holiday.
The main summer months of June, July and August have long sunny days (9-11 hours sunshine), virtually no rainfall and have daytime temperatures of 27-30 degrees although the heat is moderated by refreshing daytime sea breezes. Evenings can be warm, around 20 degrees.
Sardinia can have a slightly shorter hot summer season than many other Mediterranean destinations and in May and September there can be occasional unsettled days although the average is still a very nice 8-9 hours of sunshine per day. Average daytime temperatures rise through May from 20 degrees - 27 degrees whilst September remains warmer, averaging 27 degrees through the month.
In October the temperatures remain pleasant in the low 20's but there may be some rain/cloud and the average is 6 hours sunshine per day.
