If you love sun then July is the perfect time for you to visit Sardinia and its many coastal beach resorts, such as sun-drenched Costa Smeralda and Isola Rossa, to name just two. July is officially the month when Sardinia is at its sunniest, with the most daily sunshine hours on average, at around 12 per day – perfect for topping up the tan! If you need to cool down, then the Mediterranean Sea will do just that for you, with a very pleasant average temperature of around 23°C, so you can enjoy a plethora of water-sports and swimming activities, as well as diving and snorkelling during this peak summer month.

The average July temperature is 24°C, although the high can easily reach 29°C, with those constant breezes making it feel a little more comfortable. A low of 19°C on average is to be expected, so air conditioning is possibly needed during the evenings. Rain? Not a problem, as July on average only experience around 2mm of precipitation, affecting just 2 days out of the month.

July is the ideal time to enjoy outdoor activities in Sardinia, whether that be on the beach, or out on the golf course, for example.

Where to stay

July is the time to bathe in sunshine and enjoy everything the summer has to offer in Sardinia. If you're staying in Alghero, in the wild north of the island, then Hotel Calabona offers a relaxed atmosphere, with a huge swimming pool for a cool down in the July heat. You can also find entertainment at this time of year in the hotel.

Alternatively, perhaps you've headed somewhere a little quieter and tranquil, to escape the summer crowds. Murta Maria is a village resort, set in beautiful countryside, located about half an hour away from Olbia. Hotel Speraesole offers a laid-back base for your break in paradise.

On the other hand, if you chose Costa degli Angeli, then Qt Hotel offers a half board option, and very close proximity to beautiful Poetto Beach, making this the perfect central base for a beach holiday.

What to do

If you've always dreamed of riding a galloping, or cantering, horse across a beautiful sunset beach then Sardinia is the place to do it, and there are countless riding schools who offer you the opportunity, with trainers to help boost your confidence before you and your horse are set free. Centro Ippico Meurreddus a Cuaddu in San Giovanni Suergiu or Horse Riding Sulcis Sardinia, also in San Giovanni, are two examples of schools to give you the opportunity you've been dreaming of.

If you prefer to head out onto the sparkling Mediterranean Sea now the summer is in full swing however, then a boat trip is just the ticket. Again, you'll find countless companies offering the chance to tour the coastline, and if you're staying in Alghero, check out Wind Sardinya Sail Sas, who offer private trips for groups of up to ten people. What better way to explore the beautiful coastline than by catching a golden tan at the same time?

Alternatively, if under the sea is more your thing, then you're in luck. The marine life around Sardinia is breath-taking and the warmer waters of the sea now July has arrived make this the perfect time to visit those colourful inhabitants below the surface. DST – Diving and Snorkelling Team Sardegna, located in Golfo Aranci are a well reputed company, with the help of experienced divers to show you the ropes and help you understand what you're going to be seeing when you dive.

If you're visiting Sedilo, between Oristano and Nuoro, on 6-7 July, you will be able to see the S'Ardia Horse Race, held in honour of San Costantino. This is a thrilling race which attracts thousands of spectators, and fun and festivities to go alongside it.

Hit the beach

If you are staying around the Alghero region then around 8km south of the resort you will find La Speranza, which is the ideal spot for sunbathing and catching a beautiful golden tan. Alternatively, if you like your beaches a little more rustic and rocky, then Bosa, just south of the resort again, is fantastic for snorkelling and scuba diving.

Where to eat and drink

Peak summer season means restaurants are busy, and in many cases this simply means it's a good idea to call ahead and book a table in some of the most popular restaurants. In Cagliari this is probably advisable, and Lord Nelson is one restaurant where you should be doing this. This is where you will experience some of the freshest and tastiest seafood on offer, so don't risk your table by not calling ahead!

In San Teodoro it's also a good idea to book ahead at Alculiciu, where the pretty green surroundings make for a fantastic night out, whether you're visiting as a couple, family, or group. This is also a good option for a mid-budget restaurant, which doesn't break the bank.

If you simply fancy an ice cream however, then Alghero's famous Alghero Gelateria Oops! Is not only aptly named, but also very popular, especially in the evenings as everyone seeks out a tasty, cool down treat!
