The Italian island of Sardinia is all about the crystal-clear, turquoise waters and white or golden sandy beaches. It regularly tops polls for having the best beaches in the world and is often likened to the Caribbean.
Sitting next to Corsica in the middle of the Mediterranean, it has nearly 2,000km of gorgeous coastline and a mountainous interior which provides the best road and mountain biking of any Neilson beachclub. Our beachclub on Sardinia, Baia dei Mori, is situated on the north east coast, to the south of the famous Costa Smeralda. It's in a perfect location for water sports with dinghy sailing, windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking all available in the beautiful bay with crystal clear water and consistent winds.
Sardinia has warm Mediterranean days and long, hot summers. May and June herald the start of the summer with temperatures in the mid 20s. It's not super hot yet, so great for the shore-based activities, especially mountain biking and road cycling.
July and August temperatures usually top out in the low 30s, but can be hotter, while September sees a return to the mid to high 20s. If you're looking for the most consistent wind conditions for sailing, windsurfing or kitesurfing, it's best to travel in June, July or August.
