Most holiday destinations in Europe are ideal to visit during the summer months of the year but they are not the type of places you’d dream of going to during the winter season. Cyprus on the other hand is different. The weather is warm almost all year round so no matter what time of year you want to get away for a while, holidays Cyprus are an ideal choice.
Many tourists say that the best time to go on holidays Cyprus is during the spring as this is when the island is at its most beautiful. The spring season begins in early February and it is not unheard of for temperatures to be in their 20s. It is also during the spring that the wild flowers begin to grow around the suburbs and villages and these really are a stunning sight.
The summers in Cyprus are long and last from May until early September. This is the most popular time for holidays Cyprus partly due to the school breaks but also due to the hot weather – and it is hot! In fact many locals won’t even go out during the day time in the summer months, preferring instead to take advantage of their private pools and the beaches. The water parks in the country are also extremely popular during the summer months.
If you love wine (and don’t have any children of school age) the best time for you to take Cyprus holidays is during the autumn. In September and October the local grapes are harvested to be turned into wine and some wineries will even let tourists help them with the process. Plus the Limassol wine festival takes place in September which is a great event that is popular with both locals and tourists alike.
The winter months are the quietest times on the island tourist-wise however many choose to take their holidays Cyprus during these months for this reason. Of course, the Troodos Mountains on the island are a great place to venture to, especially if you are a fan of winter sports activities like skiing. You could always head to the slopes during the day and then sip cocktails on the beach during the evening.
Holidays Cyprus can be enjoyed all year round so no matter what your interests are you are sure to have a great time.
