Spring in Cyprus
The first orchids bloom in January in Cyprus, and by mid-February the countryside is already alive with fresh green meadows and almond trees in bloom.
Daytime in March can still be cool with temperatures around 19°C (65°F) during the day and approximately 9°C (40°F) at night but steadily moderate. Early spring is a wonderful time to visit to Cyprus, with pleasant daytime temperatures and many of the ancient ruins framed by a carpet of red anemones and other wildflowers.
In April and into the middle of May spring is in full force. This is an ideal time for nature hikes and off-road adventures in the pristine Akamas Peninsula.
Cyprus has 1,950 species of flowering plants, 140 of which grow nowhere else but on the Island. In the Akamas alone, there are 700 plant species, of which 40 are endemic!
From February to April, pink cyclamen sprouts up from rocky foothills and thickets and forms a riveting adornment to the Baths of Aphrodite.
