Climate of Northern Cyprus
Northern Cyprus has a unique climate which provides the opportunity for the ideal holiday location at any time of year. The island has a typical Eastern Mediterranean climate. Long, hot, dry sunny summers and short mild rainy, winters, usually concentrated in December and January.
Cyprus has probably the warmest sea temperatures in the Mediterranean, typically mid twenties, (degrees Centigrade), during the summer months with a year round average of around 20ēC.
Spring time is a particularly good time to visit Cyprus, which is renowned for its wild flowers which carpet the island at this time of year. Day time temperatures are usually in the low to mid twenties.
Even during the hottest parts of the summer Northern Cyprus is an ideal holiday location as the heat of the day is moderated by the breezes created by the Kyrenia mountain range lying immediately behind the coastal plain.
The holiday season does not end with the beginning of Autumn. The temperatures are still typically mid to high twenties, (degrees Centigrade), during October and November, but the day time temperatures remain pleasantly warm and the sea is still warm enough for swimming.
