Sardinia Weather December Averages, Italy
What's The Weather Like In Sardinia In December
The festive season has arrived in Sardinia, and despite the likelihood of rain, with this being one of the island's rainier periods, there is plenty to see, do, and enjoy in the final month of the year.
December sees an average temperature of 11°C, so it's time to wrap up warm, especially if you're heading inland. Despite that, the average high can easily reach 15°C, and drops to a rather chilly 7°C as an average low.
It's not really worth getting your feet wet and heading into the Mediterranean Sea during December, as the average water temperature only reaches around 16°C, which is certainly too chilly for swimming in general!
December sees a dramatic drop in sunshine hours in Sardinia, with an average of 4 hours per day seeing sunshine, however when the sun does grace you with its presence, it will be bright and very pleasant indeed.
Sardinia is a wonderful place to visit during the festive season and for the New Year celebrations, and the capital, Cagliari, in particular will have many opportunities to celebrate.
Sardinia Hotels In December
A festive stay in Sardinia could be anywhere on the island, however there's no denying that most of the fun and festive life will be found in the capital. There are many different places to stay in Cagliari, however the Panorama Hotel offers, typically, panoramic views in comfortable surroundings.
Ulivi E Palme Hotel
If you want something a little more upmarket, then Ulivi E Palme Hotel is for you, with many facilities to make your stay as luxurious as possible.
On the other hand, if you're managing your budget and you want to watch your pennies, then the Cerdena Rooms offer comfort for a lower price tag, no matter what the month of the year.
Sardinia Beaches For December
If you're planning on spending some of the festive season on the beach, then you need something special to mark the occasion. Santa Teresa in the north is wild, rugged, and romantically beautiful perfect for enjoying a winter stroll. You will also be able to see right across the Straits of Bonifacio which is certainly something special to greet your eyes.
Bars And Restaurants
Whether it's for the big festive day or not, there are plenty of choices for restaurants and bars to enjoy your evening's entertainment in Sardinia during the last month of the year. If you are looking for somewhere for Christmas Day itself, or New Year's Eve, then certainly ring and book ahead.
If you're in Porto Cervo for the festive period, you need to be heading to Aruana Churrascaria, where you will enjoy a truly delicious meal in stunningly beautiful surroundings. This isn't the cheapest restaurant you'll ever go to, but it will be worth every single penny.
Alghero boasts the fantastic Quintilio, with its amazing sunset views, and even more stunning food. You may be more blown away by the food itself or the presentation, it depends on the person involved, however both are truly something special.
Maybe you just want to enjoy a delicious piece of cake whilst you're doing a spot of Christmas shopping, and in that case Sassari has Pan Café, where you will be treated to a huge range of delicious treats on offer.
Things To Do In Sardinia In December
Christmas time in Sardinia is all about enjoying the beauty of nature with loved ones. Cagliari, Alghero, and Olbia to name just three destinations will have plenty in the way of festivities throughout December.
A festive walk along the rugged coastline in the north of the island is a popular activity, stopping off for a coffee in a small café along the way.
Perhaps you want to get inland and enjoy the dramatic landscapes of the mountains, in which case you could try your hand at skiing, perhaps for the first time.
