Spring in Sardinia: reasons to visit and things to do in Sardinia.
In spring, there is no better place to be! Aside from the beautiful weather, Sardinia has many other perks you don't want to miss!
Sardinia is one of the nicest islands in Italy to visit during the summer. It is well-known for its coastline and beautiful beaches, but more tourists are discovering Sardinia in the spring, from March to June when a rainbow of wildflowers floods the countryside and borders the white sand beaches, the sun's rays warm the ruins of a lost world where Nuraghi, fairy houses, and giants' tombs lie and the famous Mistral wind brings a thousand scents, stories, and distant songs of traditional festivals.
Why you should Visit Sardinia in spring?
You can have the beaches to yourself without worrying about the summer crowds and enjoy a quiet, relaxed atmosphere; moreover, Sardinian beaches in spring are something special thanks to the colorful wildflowers that grow in the dunes. If you visit the island in late April or early May, you may even be able to dip your feet in the water and get a nice tan without the fear of sunburn. In addition, the sunlight on spring days allows great photography!

Without considering the sun, you can hike without succumbing to the heat; Sardinia is a region filled with hills and unique cliffs, making it a haven for hikers and climbers. Moreover, Sardinia is also rich in natural parks/protected areas that deserve some of your time, and spring is the best season to visit these places. During the summer months, hikes are recommended at sunset, when the heat is not too strong, while in spring you can walk from morning to sunset to fully enjoy Sardinian nature. One of the most famous hiking trails is the ‘Cammino di Santa Barbara' in the southwest part of Sardinia.
