With great weather all year round, you can visit Cyprus in any season. While many tourists opt for the traditional summer holiday when the sun is at its hottest, a visit in fall certainly has a lot to offer and those in the know believe it to be the very best time of year to explore the island.
While the sun still shines brightly, the heat is not quite so intense, so it’s perhaps more pleasant for walking and discovering all the hidden gems of this Mediterranean paradise. Add in the magical colours of the autumn leaves and you have some truly spectacular scenery to enjoy. If you’ve never visited Cyprus in autumn then you’re in for a real treat, and here are 8 more reasons to fall in love with Cyprus this fall…
With fine golden sand, and crystal-clear waters, Cyprus has some of the best beaches in the whole world. You’re spoilt for choice, so take your pick of Blue Flag beaches, from secluded romantic bays to safe family beaches with lots of amenities or lively party beaches with DJs playing.

Cyprus has many small villages for you to discover, each unique and special in their own way, such as Kalopanayiotis with its Venetian bridges and UNESCO Heritage monastery; pretty Lefkara, famous for lace and silverware, as well as several superb eateries and cafes; Kakopetria, a timeless authentic village in the Troodos mountains, and Omodos, a popular village in the heart of the Limassol wine growing district
