It's a great time of the year to visit Cyprus. Being on the Mediterranean, the island has pleasant weather almost all year round. Perched on the eastern side of Europe (just south of Turkey) the Mediterranean climate is temperate with hot, dry summers and cool and somewhat wetter winters. Cyprus is generally basked in the warm sun the whole year round, making Paphos a great escape from the freezing European winters. Detox and de-stress at these great spas.
