A Complete Guide to the Weather in Cyprus

Packed with ancient archaeological sites, beautiful beaches and a whole host of activities, it is easy to see why Cyprus is such a popular year-round holiday destination.

Larnaca is situated on the southern coast and is the gateway to lively resorts such as Ayia Napa and Protaras. Ayia Napa famously comes alive at night and is jam packed with bars and nightclubs, so after a night of partying there’s no better place to chill than on the beautiful Nissi Beach.

Not too far from Ayia Napa you’ll find the family resort of Protaras. Here you’ll find everything you need to keep the family entertained.

The west coast plays host to Paphos, a resort that offers a little something for everything. Not only is it home to the famous Tomb of the Kings, underground tombs dating back to the 4th century BC, but it also boasts a trendy harbour which is a great spot to sit and watch the world go by.

Limassol sits between both Paphos and the Larnaca region. This city has a cosmopolitan feel, but there’s no mistaking it’s historical past.


If you didn’t know already Cyprus has two airports, so if you want to stay in Ayia Napa or Protaras, Larnaca Airport is the nearest to these resorts. Paphos has its own airport while Limassol is around a forty minute drive from both Larnaca and Paphos Airport.

So what is the Weather Like in Cyprus?

With a sub-tropical climate, Cyprus is popular throughout the year with tourist figures peaking from May – September. The winter months are a great time for sightseeing, and Cypriots drive on the same side of the road as us in the UK, so we would recommend hiring a car and heading off into Troodos Mountains where some spectacular views await you. Don’t forget to stop off for some traditional Cypriot food though! Yes, that’s right just like your mamma used to make.
