What Month Is Best To Visit Cyprus?

We studied meteorological statistics, reviews of tourists and actual in 2024 prices for obtaining the most correct information. Will it be useful? We’ll see!

Spring

In general, a few people consider spring months as a best time for a trip to Cyprus. Although a scrupulous studying of long-term statistics convinces – this is an outdated stereotype!

Of course, if you get out on the island at the end of March, you will hardly dream about swimming in the sea. But on the other hand, you’ll see how powerfully and quickly nature wakes up here.

And you will surely plan and implement an exceptionally busy entertainment program: go on a trip to the villages in the Troodos mountains, visit old monasteries there, see the Akamas park and its Blue Lagoon, bizarre grottoes on Cape Greco.

Going on your own, with a rented in Cyprus car, not with a tour, be careful. After all, the roads here are sometimes very narrow, and some have never seen asphalt!

Even a skeptic would not call the March weather in Cyprus cold or just bad. Indeed, on the coast, the air easily warms up to +20 degrees Celsius. And at the end of the month even up to +25 °C!

Rains in early spring in Cyprus are rare and occur no more than 3-4 times a month. But the winds sometimes are too sharp – you should to pack in the suitcase enough warm clothes.

However, all the same, the citizens who were in Larnaca or Paphos in March in the reviews declare their complete contentment. And they often say that in a week or even less they managed to see all the main attractions of Cyprus.

April

As Easter approaches, it gets warmer in Cyprus. At first, not much! But at times the air and sea area warm up to values ​​at which you can start thinking about swimming.

Although the sea near Cyprus in April rarely reach the range of +20 °C

But sightseeing trips and tours around the island at this time will cause a bouquet of positive emotions. If, of course, you first get acquainted with the weather forecast.

Woolen clothes, taken with you on a long trip along the coast or in the mountains, will not hurt. But in most cases, you won’t have to complain about the weather.

And you will walk the streets in something incredibly light and summery. At the end of the month, perhaps, remember about sunscreen – even in the middle of spring, the sun bakes incredibly here.

In general, no one will call April the best time for traveling Cyprus. But there is no doubt – this month has a lot of advantages

In May

the high season comes to the island, causing an arriving a great number of foreign tourists arrive. Perhaps, that is why Anthestiria is celebrated on Cyprus right at that time?!

Nature flourishes truly violently, and the average temperatures inspire. After all, they are getting close to +25 °C already in the first half of May!

At night firstly it’s quite cool: up to +15-17 °C. But in the second half of the month, even after sunset the air remains warm (+20-24 °C).

Swimming in the sea in Cyprus in May, be careful – the water warms up to a maximum of + 20-21 °C

Summer

in the island is not suitable for a relaxing holiday in all months. If it’s not very hot in Cyprus in June, then in July and August staying here is quite tiring. And who in their right mind would like air temperatures over +50 °C?

In June, the weather in Cyprus is characterized by an abundance of clear days, but tolerable air temperatures. In most cases, outdoor thermometers will show something like +30 °C and a bit above. But, due to the low humidity and the complete absence of rain, it is easily tolerated.

Again, the sea off the coast, warmed up to a temperature of +25-26 ° C, is still able to refresh

But at the peak of the summer season in Cyprus, it gets too hot. And weather forecasters often promise something incredible – up to 45-50 °C. This is against the backdrop of a zero probability of precipitation and a scorching sun.

People who consider themselves fully healthy can try to spend their holiday in Cyprus in July. But in August, even they should choose another place for vacation!

If you don’t believe us, check out the related videos. After all, at this time the sun literally burns out all the island’s greenery. And if the mountain forests somehow hold on, then it’s hard to find a shadow on the coast.

Prices 2024

Hotels in Cyprus in the summer try to get the most out of it. Although in case of early booking you can stay in an inexpensive but high-quality apartment. Giving about 70-80 € per day, even in Ayia Napa.

Pay attention, for example, to Millie’s Apartments – here you can rent a studio with your own kitchen. The apart hotel is located 5 minutes from the sea, at the very beginning of the local bar street. But in the rooms are not noisy at all – notice in the reviews surprised guests.

Those wishing to save money are advised to pay attention to Silver Sea Holiday Apartments. The complex, where cozy studios are rented, is located 700 meters from the beaches and costs about 80 € per night.

The offer of Pieris Apartments apartments looks even more attractive (especially in terms of price). The area of this studio is about 40 m2, inside there is all the necessary equipment for self-cooking. The beach can be reached in a few minutes.

Autumn

starts in Cyprus like a continuation of summer. That is, in September the weather in Cyprus becomes noticeably less hot than in August.

During the day the air warms up to + 30-32 °C. At night, though, it gets much colder. At first, the temperature drops to +22-23 °C after sunset, and towards the end of the month – to +18-19 °C.

The sea near the coast allows you to swim regardless of the time of day. In early September, it warms up to +27-28 °C, close to October cools down to +25 °C

Keep in mind that the west coast of Cyprus is usually a little cooler than the east one. Therefore, September in Paphos, for example, is characterized by slightly lower air temperatures compared to Protaras.

Rains in early autumn are rare here. Equally, the winds rather pleasantly cool heated bodies than cause inconvenience – from our mind September is good (if not the best) time for vacationing in Cyprus.

Early autumn in Cyprus - good time to go on seaside holiday

October and November

The next months temperatures drop noticeably. And the weather in Cyprus becomes just warm, but not hot. And at the end of autumn, it begins to signal the imminent arrival of winter.

On the one hand, you can still walk around without umbrellas and jackets – during the daytime. But in the evenings you already have to think about sweaters and hoodies

During the day in October in Cyprus, the air warms up to + 27-28 °C. But after sunset it becomes too cool – about +15 °C. Rains, though, happen no more than 2-3 times a month!

It gets much cooler in Cyprus in November. But tourists from the same UK are unlikely to regret coming here at this time. After all, the average air temperature will be about +22 °C.

This will allow you not only to sunbathe, but also to swim – even after All Saints’ Day, you can do it in Cyprus without fear of freezing too much…

Toward the middle of the month, cultural and excursion events come to the fore – like excursions to the Troodos Mountain and walking along the streets of Limassol and Nicosia. Daytime air temperatures will move into the range of +16-18 °C.

The rains are slowly starting to get on your nerves, winds are getting stronger, and the humidity is also growing. But in general, the field of activity remains habitually wide.

After all, travelers can enjoy the natural landscapes in Akamas Park and Cape Greco. Without interference, explore the marvelous mosaic heritage of Paphos, visit the Aphrodite’s Rock, ruins of ancient Kourion. Or maybe go to Northern Cyprus – after all, there are also a lot of interesting things there!

Winter

The coldest in the year and therefore almost completely unattractive time for visiting Cyprus. Although if you take a closer look, you will find something remarkable. After all, when it rains non-stop in London, and New York is preparing for a heavy snowfall, the weather on the Mediterranean island is quite warm.

Don’t believe? But in December in Cyprus it’s really not bad. If not for swimming, then for enjoyment of life  – for sure!

The air temperature in the coastal areas during the day fluctuates within + 17-21 °C. There is not as much sunlight as we would like. But against the background of a moderate probability of precipitation, you will be happy!

January and especially February are slightly colder times in Cyprus. The air warms up only to +15-17 °C. In the evenings during this period, according to the Cypriots themselves, it is better not to leave the house at all. Because the outdoor thermometer can show up to +10°C or even lower – by the sea, of course.

Snow falls in the mountains, skiers appear on the slopes of the local Mount Olympus. But on the coast of Cyprus they don’t know anything about the real winter

However, you will not meet many tourists either. So people who love solitude and know what to do in Cyprus will definitely find real peace of mind on its shores in the off-season.

Maybe Christmas - the best time to get to Cyprus?
