On Sardinia, there really is no such thing as vacationing “out of season”, since the island as well as Porto Rafael are fascinating all year around: the deep blue sea and the unmistakable sent of the “macchia sarda” in spring; the light and the crystal clear shining water and the warmth of the sun; the taste of the fruits of the Strawberry tree in the mellow fall as well as the quiet of the grey skies and pastel sea in the winter.
