Seasonal Climate Variations / When to Go

If the summer climate is just a little too hot for your liking, then do consider coming to Paphos during the brief shoulder seasons of spring and autumn. April is an especially appealing time to arrive, with warm temperatures and not much in the way of rainfall.

The low season on Cyprus is the winter, when Paphos is at its most quiet and hotels are at their cheapest. December and January do experience the wettest weather, but fine days are not uncommon at this time of the year, and the crowds are long gone. A winter Cypriot holiday can be quite enjoyable, and is always something completely different to a summer vacation, with nearby Mount Olympus even presenting some winter skiing opportunities.
