For summer: When it gets sizzling hot

It is the best time for swimming in your break in cyprus villa pool, sunbathing in your holiday villa sun trap or for taking in a whole range of watersports from scuba diving to sailing. During this time of the year you can explore the archaeological sites in the early morning or in the late afternoon thus avoiding the hottest, most difficult to get active, part of the day. Be sure to bring along plenty of sun protection, like sunscreen and also get yourself a broad-brimmed hat. Even in the height of the summer time when it' gets up around 32C(90F) degrees on the beach ( warmer inland). Temperatures do tend to be refreshingly cooler in the Troodos, favouring the mountains for hiking excursions or simply for relaxing.

September and October are still sunny days and the water is still warm enough for acceptable pleasant swimming. Realy, it is still summer., the first 10days of Sept brings the annual Wine Festival to Lemesos, a very active and entertaining period realy not to be missed.
