Climate: The climate in Sardinia is Mediterranean, with mild winters and hot, sunny summers. Rainfall is not abundant and follows the Mediterranean pattern where rain is more common in autumn and winter and gradually decreases during spring until it hits a low in summer, when it almost never rains. Sardinia can be a windy island between October and April due to the Maestrale, the northwest wind, which blows from France. The Sirocco winds can also affect the island, blowing from the south-east bringing the heat from Africa. The amount of sunshine in Sardinia is very good in summer, especially along the coast, when clear skies prevail. The best time to visit Sardinia for a beach holiday is the summer, from June to August.
