Weather in Cyprus in April

Like almost everywhere in Europe or Turkey, this time of year is not stable. Which does not prevent tourists who visited Cyprus even in early April from scribbling extremely positive reviews on social networks. Informing that it turned out to do literally everything from the plan!

Not only to visit all the interesting places in Cyprus, but along the way and enjoy the view of blooming spring nature. Sunbathe and even swim, take part in cruises and inland excursions, go fishing on the high seas.

There is no particular doubt that all this will succeed. After all, the instability of the weather in Cyprus at the early April (and, moreover, at its end) has little in common with that somewhere in London.

Since in any case it allows you to count on the air temperature of the order of + 18-20 °C at the beginning of the month and a very modest chance of rain. That, of course just provokes long trips inside the island!

Dips to values ​​around +15 °C, although infrequent, do happen. But they are followed by significant warming. And reaching new heights – by the middle of the month you may expect seeing on thermometer something about + 22-24°C.

In April 2023, the weather in Cyprus was about the same. And even western Paphos, not to mention the eastern and warmer Ayia Napa, regularly observed + 20-22 °C on thermometers

It is colder at night – up to + 14-16 °C. Which should encourage the participants of evening walks along the streets and embankments of April Limassol or Larnaca to wear warmer.

Rains in Cyprus in the middle of spring are rare according to long-term statistics. The average rainfall does not exceed 25 mm, no more than 1-2 rainy days should be expected per month with an average rainfall of no more than 25-30 mm.

But in practice, literally any tourist when vacationed in Cyprus even at the end of April came across them. Amazing, right?! After all, forecasts constantly promise a high probability of a clear day.

Sea Temperature

Not able to keep some of the vacationers from taking sea baths. And sometimes long swims. Although from the point of view of local residents, the water area with a temperature of + 17-19 °C is suitable only for cooling beer …

In general, you can swim in April in Cyprus. And in other years it is even necessary – the sea along the coast warms up so much that it makes you remember summer days

Just keep in mind that things can change very quickly. And sleeping with almost absolute calm, the bay suddenly becomes completely inhospitable. And the sea is covered with waves, fiercely attacking yesterday such a hospitable coast.

The strength of the wind and its direction in the middle of spring are the defining climatic factors on the island. So studying of the short-term weather forecast should become commonplace on vacation.

Best Resorts in April

Many tourists, especially those who have previously been to Cyprus, in April out of habit choose its eastern coast: Protaras and Ayia Napa. After all, these island resorts are famous for their amazing sandy beaches and excellent swimming conditions for literally all ages.

However, such a choice in the middle of spring cannot be considered optimal. After all, of the sights here there is only the Cape Greco National Park – you will have to get to other places by bus or car

So, we advise you to learn about car hiring in Cyprus. Requirements for tenants are very moderate, and prices at this time of the year are low. As for left-hand traffic, which most Europeans and North Americans are not used to, you will soon adapt to it!

It is quite another thing to stay in April in Larnaca or Limassol, especially Paphos. Since there are much more opportunities in terms of off-the-beach leisure

From sightseeing interesting places that abound in the cities themselves and in adjacent Troodos mountain range to evening gatherings in authentic local restaurants. As a close acquaintance with the traditional cuisine of Cyprus may well become a real decoration of your holiday.

Prices 2024

Prices in local hotels in mid-spring have not yet fully recovered from hibernation. Although, of course, don’t count you’ll  rent a house for the same amount as in December.

We tend to recommend the inexpensive Sunny apartments located at some distance from the city center and beaches, but in a quiet place

Its owner at this time of the year charges about 60-65 € per night – not too much for the apartment with a a well-equipped kitchen?

Also pay attention to The Paphos Pafia 2 Apartment in Paphos. As it has everything the tourist need and located within short distance from the main attraction of the city, the Archaeological Park.

At no other time on the island will you see such an abundance of flowers and lush greenery! That is why trips to sightseeing places, as well as villages in the central part of the island, should be given special attention.

Tulips & WaterParks

If you’re planning to travel around Cyprus by car, in April we recommend heading to the village Polemi. It is located 15 km northeast of Paphos, at an elevation of around half a kilometer above sea level.

Few people know that Polemi and neighboring Stroumpi, are the only places in Cyprus where wild tulips of the Tulipa Agenensis species grow. Because of this, these settlements are even called the “Tulip Villages”.

In early April, Polemi hosts a “Tulip Festival”. It’s a modest and heartfelt celebration, which, although incomparable to the annual spring spectacle in the Dutch flower park Keukenhof, is guaranteed to lift spirits.

Families with kids should note that in April reopen water parks in Cyprus, including the largest one, Water World Waterpark in Ayia Napa

So if your family enjoys such entertainment, keep an eye on the news on the website.

Especially worth visiting in April are places such as the beaches of Coral Bay and Lara. As well as the picturesque Avakas Gorge and the Akamas National Park with the Blue Lagoon near Paphos

An indispensable item in the program of a traveler who finds himself in Cyprus for the first time will be the monastery of Kykkos. And equally – if possible, of course, the villages of Pedulas and Mutulas located not far from it.

A natural step would be a visit to the ancient ruins of Kourion near Limassol. Not even so much for the thousand-year-old ruins, but for the views that open up around. If you have time – visit the “Rock of Aphrodite” and the ruins of another ancient policy, Amathus.

You should definitely plan a visit to Cape Greco near Ayia Napa. Places, especially beautiful in the spring.

We advise you to spend a day exploring Famagusta on the Turkish part of the island. Also, a trip to Kirne will be a great way to spend time usefully.
