WHEN TO GO
Set in the far south of the Mediterranean, Cyprus has one of the best climates in Europe. Blue skies come as standard, and the island sees a massive 340 days of sunshine a year. Swimsuit temperatures kick in as early as April, when the mercury rises into the low 20s. Things get much hotter in the summer – 30 degrees is normal, although don’t be surprised if the thermometer creeps closer to 40 on some days. Autumn is slightly cooler, so it’s perfect for sightseeing or hiking in the Troodos Mountains. Cyprus gets most of its rain between December and March, but it’s not much, and temperatures are still pretty mild.

Health & Safety
You should take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance to cover you while you’re away. It’s also a good idea to get a European Health Insurance Card – or EHIC – before leaving the UK. Though it’s not a substitute for travel insurance, it entitles you to emergency medical treatment on the same terms as Cypriot nationals. It won’t, however, cover you for medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment.
