What's The Weather Like In Sardinia In August


Those seeking cooler temperatures are best to avoid August in Sardinia, as this is the hottest month of the year, with the highest sea and air temperatures on average. You can expect 25°C as standard, however the average high can easily reach 30°C, and the average low only dips to a very warm 19°C during the evenings; as with July, air conditioning in your hotel is a must have. Despite the high temperatures, Sardinia is known as a windy island, so it will never feel truly unbearable, especially on the coast.

Sunshine Hours

The sun will grace you with its presence in abundance, with an average of 10 hours of sunshine per day during August.


You are unlikely to see any rain during your visit, as Sardinia only sees around 3mm of the wet stuff during August, which only affects 5 days at all. 

August is the month to kick back and relax in Sardinia, without exerting yourself too much in the highest temperatures of the year.

Sardinia Hotels In August

Sighientu Life Hotel and Spa

Fringed with sand dunes, and clear blue sea, the white sand here is perfect for a day's relaxation and cooling down in the August heat.
