WHEN TO GO
Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, Cyprus’ weather is easy to predict. If you want it hot, go between June and September – the thermometer can climb up to 40°C. For a comfier blast of warmth, try April, May or October, when the temperature hovers between 17°C and 25°C. There’s not much variation in the temperature across the island, although the western side is sometimes a degree or 2 cooler than the east. Winters are pretty mild, too, with temperatures nudging up to 20°C even in December. December to March sees a bit of rain, but it’s usually only a few inches each month.

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.For the latest health and safety info, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/cyprus/health
