Being a Metiterranean island Cyprus enjoys plentiful sunshine throughout the year. Extremes of temperatures are rare, meaning Cyprus has something to offer every month of the year: The summer is warm and dry and ideal for swimming, sunbathing, scuba diving, sailing, visiting archaeological sites, hiking in the Troodos Mountains etc. The fist signs of autumn are the romantic change of colour of the leaves of the trees and the gold and crimson hues of the vineyards against the crystal clear sunlight. Temperatures gradually start to drop and the occasional rainy starts to fall. It is the ideal time for inland excursions to the traditional villages and getting acquainted with the Cypriot culture. The winter slowly takes over the fall as rainfall becomes more frequent, but short lived. The sun still shines a good 6-7 hours each day and Cyprus takes a more business oriented outlook with many conferences and exhibitions taking place. Ski season finally kicks in and a number of ski slopes are available to the public. At the end of winter dazzling flowers cover the island to announce the beginning of spring. The alluring landscape under the bright sun rays becomes ideal for nature hikes and off-road adventures in the pristine Akamas Peninsula. Usual temperates during the year vary from 15°C-32°C respectively from winter to summer.
