Cyprus sunindex: the best time to travel to Cyprus
The official summer season on Cyprus ends during the second part of October and starts again during the second part of May. However, I regularly spent time by the swimming pool in November, December, March and April as well. From my own experience I can tell that the weather on Cyprus can be very pleasant during these months. When the winter sports season has already started in the Troodos mountain range you can also go sunbathing on the coast which is only 100 kilometers away. Because the official tourist season is over the restaurants, bars and clubs are not as crowded as during the high season. Some of these facilities are even closed, especially the bars and restaurants that that depend on youngsters for an income. Several travel agencies offer complete package tours during the winter. However, you can also book your hotel via one of the hotel booking websites.

From my own experience I would have no problem to venture to Cyprus for a winter season holiday in November, March or April. Because it is not the high season you can book a flight only a few days before you want to depart. This way you can check the weather forecast (10-15 days) and determine whether the weather is suitable for a holiday. A big advantage of a winter sun holiday on Cyprus is the peace and quiet and the low prices. Some hotels and car rental companies are even 50% cheaper during this period.
