Costa Smeralda-Weather Conditions
North Sardinia is hot and dry from May to October but often with fresh winds due to its location, close to Corsica, to give life to "Venturi effect" especially when wind comes from NW (as usually it does), the famous Mistral wind. For this reason this is the preferred destination for true sailing fans.
The island is swept by many winds - firstly the Mistral, and is not unusual to have 10 Knots every day (thermic winds), which can scale up to 30 for 3-5 days even in June and July. August is more calm but can take thunderstorm, even if the usual weather is hot and quiet.
