Cyprus weather

Cyprus Weather allows you to enjoy the intense Mediterranean climate pattern of long dry summers and mild winters, making it the ideal holiday destination at any time of the year.

The summer period runs from mid-May to mid-October and winter from December to February, these being separated by the beautiful short seasons of autumn and spring.

Cyprus Weather in summer gives a season of long days, cloudless skies and high temperatures which are tempered by welcoming sea breezes in the coastal areas.

In winter the Paphos weather also provides plenty of radiant sunshine during the day. The weather is mild with some rain and on the Troodos mountains snow is usually seen before Christmas, making it a truly festive scene.

As can be seen from the Cyprus Weather information below, during December and January there is still an average of six hours of sunshine a day!(Figures supplied by the Meteorological Service in Nicosia and sea temperature figures supplied by the Fisheries Department in Nicosia)





Ave Max Temp(C) 24.6, Ave Min Temp(C) 14.6, Ave Days With Rain 3.8, Ave Sunshine Hours 10.2, Ave Sea Temp(C) 19.3

Days are very pleasant with plenty of sunshine, but temperatures can fall a bit at night. Pack your summer clothing for during the day but bring along light jumpers or long sleeved tops for that evening stroll along the beach.

This is an excellent season to enjoy the nature trails on The Akamas. The flowers are in bloom and the countryside is at its greenest.


Ave Max Temp(C) 32.3, Ave Min Temp(C) 21.6, Ave Days With Rain 0.1, Ave Sunshine Hours 12.5, Ave Sea temp(C) 24.3

These are the warmest months of summer. To get the best out of the Cyprus Weather at this time of year you should pack your light weight clothing and sun hats and leave plenty of room for your sun tan lotions. These are the best months for spending time around the pool, at the beach and taking part in water activities.


Ave Max Temp(C) 29.5, Ave Min Temp(C) 19.1, Ave Days With Rain 1.4, Ave Sunshine Hours 9.8, Ave Sea Temp(C) 24.4

At this time of year the Cyprus Weather still offers plenty of sunshine and gloriously warm days. The evenings can appear a little cool after a long hot day, so pack your lightweight day-wear and something to cover those arms and legs when the sun goes down.


Ave Max Temp(C) 21.3, Ave Min Temp(C) 11.7, Ave Days With Rain 8.7, Ave Sunshine Hours 6.5, Ave Sea Temp(C) 19.3

The days are still pleasantly warm but now is the time to pack your autumn clothing. Light woollies are a must if you plan to enjoy outdoor sports or an outdoor lunch. Sunbathing and swimming can still be enjoyed at this time of year and certain people that we know here at Rent A Villa In Paphos feel it is mandatory to enjoy a swim on Christmas day! Some would say this is only for the foolhardy or brave but we do have the pictures to prove it.


Ave Max Temp(C) 17.4, Ave Min Temp(C) 8.3, Ave Days With Rain 10.3, Ave Sunshine Hours 6.6, Ave Sea temp(C) 16.8

These months are considered winter by the Cypriots but we like to compare the Pahos weather to a fresh autumn. A drink along the harbourside can still be enjoyed on New Years Day but winter clothing is definately suggested. Warm jackets and even an umbrella may be useful to fend off the occassional rain shower. This time of the year is ideal for day trips to discover what the rest of the island has to offer and conditions are great for snow skiing on the Troodos mountains.


Ave Max Temp(C) 19.4, Ave Min Temp(C) 10.0, Ave Days With Rain 8.9, Ave Sunshine Hours 7.4, Ave Sea Temp(C) 17.9

Spring has sprung. The days are getting longer and warmer and the almond trees are in bloom. Nature is at it's best and this is a great season to get out amongst it all and experience the trails and country walks. Plenty of sunshine but don't forget the winter woollies just yet!

Here at Rent A Villa In Paphos, We have to say that having emigrated from colder climes we find the overall Cyprus Weather to be near perfect. Whether you wish to ski, walk the nature trails, enjoy the watersports or simply relax and enjoy the sunshine, we know you will not be disappointed with your holiday, whatever time of year you choose to visit.
