Plant species

The local vegetation is primarily a myriad of medicinal plant species. Thyme and rosemary grow in the mountains along the coast. The most beautiful flower is the mountain peony, which is considered a close relative of the sea lilies common on the beaches. The forest, as a rule, is impenetrable and complex, the vegetation forms dense dense plantings. Lots of olive trees, heather, wild strawberries. This is the kingdom of wild boars and foxes. Forest areas on the island have decreased compared to those in the 19th century, but they are still vast and cover more than 9,000 square kilometers. The most characteristic are oak forests, especially in Barbagia, Sulcis and Sarrabus. The forests where the cork tree grows, often artificially introduced here by man, cover large areas of Gallura. Finally, beautiful chestnuts grow along the western slopes of Mount Jennargentu. Juniper can be considered a wonderful symbol of Sardinia. This tree, with a strong aroma, is common in plantings along the coast, the areas of which are expanding due to reforestation. But juniper is also present in natural forests, especially along the Gulf of Orosei. Asphodel flowers, of which there are a lot in Sardinia, are considered the flowers of the underworld of the dead. In the meadows of asphodel flowers, the shadows of the "good" dead wandered. Asphodel is considered a symbol of oblivion.

Animals species

The fauna includes a large number of species, many of which are exclusive on this island, or preserved here, but extinct elsewhere. Wild goats are the most famous animals on the island, especially in Barbagia. They are protected as endangered species. The number of wild goats decreased in proportion to the increase in poaching. But now the trend is positive, and all measures are being taken to preserve this kind of progenitors of the domestic sheep, which, of course, is the symbol of Sardinia. The majestic Sardinian deer still lives in some of the forests of the province of Cagliari. Rare monk seals are on the verge of extinction - they are found in the Gulf of Orosei and on the island of Tavolara, other mammals are wild cats and foxes. In the high, inaccessible mountains, birds of prey such as the golden eagle and the great griffin live. And in the coastal ponds hundreds of thousands replenish the local avifauna migratory birds. You can see pink flamingos, herons, waders, ducks.

Do you know why flamingos are pink? Because they eat shrimps and little crabs. Pink flamingos usually live in the estuaries of Sardinia; this is such a beautiful sight to see.

Climate

The location of Sardinia leaves no doubt - the climate on the island is typically Mediterranean. How nice this name is! The sound of the waves is immediately heard, the soft breath of the wind is felt, filled with the aromas of juniper and rosemary. In coastal areas, the beneficial effects of the gentle sea are especially felt. Winters are very mild here, temperatures rarely drop below +10°C, summers are hot and dry with temperatures reaching +35°C. However, winds blowing mainly along the coast make it possible to perceive the surrounding temperature as cooler and therefore, easy to withstand heat.

The climate in the interior of Sardinia is more continental with temperatures that can reach -10°C in winter and +40°C in summer. Temperature fluctuations between day and night are generally higher than on the coasts. Precipitation usually falls all over the island, as a rule, there is never very much of it. However, to be precise, the western part of the island, which is most exposed to the influence of humid ocean currents, receives more precipitation than the eastern, protected by the highest mountain system of Sardinia - the Gennargentu massif. It usually rains on the island in late autumn and winter. But the summer is characterized by an almost complete absence of precipitation.

When to go to Sardinia

The swimming season on the island traditionally lasts from early May to late September. Although we must say that in recent years and in October there is warm, even hot weather and you can swim throughout this month, enjoying, as in September, the mild climate, gentle sea and deserted beaches. The peak of the glamorous life of the Costa Smeralda, when celebrities and VIPs from all over the world come here, falls in June, July and especially August. During the same period, the majority of tourists visit the south of the island, where the water temperature on the hottest days reaches 30°C.

Sardinia, thanks to its mild climate, is good for travel all year round. The best moments to get acquainted with the unique history of the island, with its mountain landscapes, forests and lakes, are autumn and especially spring, when golden balls of acacias bloom on the coasts, and emerald plains and hills are covered with a carpet of pink and red poppies.
