temperatures - too hot for 2 year old in july?

hi,

am considering coming with child who will have just turned 2 in july. Average highs on climate charts say 27 C which i think may just about be ok, if are sensible re covering her up. However I am woried in reality could be several degrees hotter too. Can anbody offer any experience /info of what temperatures could be and suitability for a young child. thanks.

The people who live on Elba somehow manage to raise children.

Hi!

You have probably already seen this climate chart:

infoelba.com/useful-information/…

As you know they are averages.

However there are many, many children of all ages, even very, very small, all through the summer and they thorougly enjoy it!

It's a: 1) mediterranean 2) island: 2 important thermoregulation factors.

Of course doctors suggest, and you are probably aware, that it's better to avoid keeping children under the sun during the central hours of the day.

Enjoy your stay on Elba Island!!!

Bye :)

The island is quite breezy and reasonably shady, especially in the western and central areas.
