FAQs


What if I want to visit Cagliari?

Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, is around 1 hour and 40 minutes away from the hotel. If you wish to visit it, you might choose to stay in Sardinia longer or arrive earlier. Ryanair flights to and from Dublin are on Saturdays and Tuesdays. If you need any information about what to do in Cagliari, reach out to me.

What will the weather be like?

Although, like everywhere else, weather might be variable, usually June is warm but not too hot - around 16 to 26 degrees, with an average of 21. The sea temperature is about 20 degrees. Again, this might change.

Do I need to bring my own mat?

You do not need to, as mats are provided, but you can bring it if you would like to. Make sure you check the regulation regarding luggage on Ryanair.

Will I be able for the classes?

All classes include options to suit all levels, so you can choose what you would like to do and what you would rather leave out. Classes are optional, and all of them are very inclusive.

 

What should I pack?

An exhaustive list will be available closer to the date, but a few suggestions are: swimsuit, light clothes, light jacket, long-sleeved top for the evening, sunblock, sun hat, snorkels, beach towel, mosquito repellent, sunglasses, flip flops, a book.

Classes
