Sardinia is the second largest island in the Meditteranean just south of Corsica with over 1500km of beautiful sandy beaches, incredible rocky formations and surrounded by warm shimmering turquoise sea.

The island is diverse offering sophisticated holidays in the summer to skiing at 1800m at Bruncu Spinao during the winter, the second highest peak of the Gennargentu Mountain Range.

With direct flights to Cagliara, Olbia and Alghero, these cities are the main gateway to the island with many people tending to spend at least a few days exploring them before venturing out to discover the magical coastal resorts of Sardinia and the inner beauty of the mountains that resemble the Monroes of the Scottish Highlands.

Sardinia is an all year round destination but to experience the island's beaches, the best time to visit is from April to the end of September where the days are long and warm.

During that period the temperature ranges from a pleasant 22 degrees peaking in to the early thirties in July and August with hardly any rain.

Our view on holidays in the Sardinia

Sardinia has always been a very popular tourist destination and these days, even more accessible with low cost airfares and value for money holiday rentals accommodation.

It is an island of stark contrast from the millionaires playground on the famous Costa Smeralda with breathtaking scenery and luxurious hotels, clubs and designer boutiques, to the unspoilt south coast.

In some parts on Sardinia's southern coast, you would be forgiven if you thought you were on a deserted exotic island - a surreal experince with deserted beaches and warm, deep azure crystal clear sea.

In a nutshell,Sardinia is a top family holiday destination, full of gastronomic tradition, rich in culture, history and incredibly friendly.
