Summer in Cyprus
For just about Summer stretches from mid-May to mid-October and means high temperatures, cloudless skies and cooling breezes from the sea.
It's the ideal season for swimming, sunbathing and a whole range of watersports from sailing to scuba diving. At this time of year, explore the archaeological sites early in the morning or in late afternoon, avoiding the hottest part of the day.
When it sizzles...
It's always a good idea to bring along sun protection, such as sunscreen and a broad-brimmed hat.
Even in the height of summer when it's 32°C (90°F) at the beach (and warmer inland), temperatures are refreshingly cooler in the Troodos, making the mountains ideal for hiking or simply relaxing.
