When to Go

July and August are high season in Sardinia. Avoid these months if at all possible: accommodation prices are often double. May, June and September are good months to go. The sea is warm in October but thunder storms likely.

Eating Out

The food is excellent: Italian with some peculiar Sard specialities. Don't be afraid to follow tiny signs down back roads to restaurants - you'll often be rewarded with an excellent meal in a beautiful location.

Very good on Sardinian history and cuisine. Includes the normal sections on getting there, opening hours, festivals, money, etc. Small amount on where to stay or eat but plenty of information on beaches, ancient sites, churches and general site-seeing. Recommended
