Singles Holidays to Cyprus
This sun-soaked island over in the east of the Mediterranean has long been a favourite destination for British holidaymakers. It’s where cultures collide and fuse into an exciting and vivacious whole, where secluded bays sheltered by dramatic rock formations give way to endless sandy beaches with their inevitable rows of beach-front bars, restaurants and clubs.A warm welcome awaits every visitor to the island, and singles will feel completely at ease the moment they allow themselves to get wrapped up in its calm, relaxed atmosphere.
But Cyprus isn’t just about sea, sun and sand. One of the best ways to enjoy the island is to pack your walking boots and help yourself to the rolling hills of the exceptionally beautiful inland regions.Don’t be surprised if you stumble upon some ancient ruins or a hidden eatery serving local culinary gems. That’s just the way it is here – every step will reveal a new treasure.
Our favourite city is Kyrenia, about 15 miles to the north of the capital Nicosia andfamous for its fabulous harbour and castles that can trace their history back to the Romans. And of course you’ll find cafes, restaurants and tours to occupy the palate and the mind during your stay.
Cyprus enjoys one of the warmest climates and warmest winters in the Mediterranean, experiencing a warm window that typically lasts around 8 months, starting in April through to November.
During the winter months, the temperatures remain mild, rarely dipping below 15 degrees Celsius, most of the rainfall occurs during these months, but even then it rains on only around 1 in 7 or 8 days, and when it does rain, there’s usually celebration as that’s how infrequent it rains. So expect bright sunny skies or cloudy sunny spells, perfect for exploring and taking in the culture and historical sites or excursions, as the country is relatively quiet during this time of the year.
However, don’t let the warming sunshine of the day give you a false sense of security, as the evenings are much colder, with temperatures dropping to below 9 degrees Celsius. If you’re looking for snow capped mountains head to the Troodos Mountains, where you’ll be sure to find an enchanting picturesque winter scene.
The hottest time of year to visit Cyprus is during the summer months of July and August, with coastal temperatures averaging around 25 degrees Celsius due to the cooling sea breeze, whilst inland temperatures can rise to over 35 degree Celsius.
