One of the benefits of being a Mediterranean island is
plentiful sunshine throughout the year, and Cyprus is no exception. Summer
stretches from mid-May to mid-October and means high temperatures, normally
cloudless skies and cooling breezes from the sea. Even in the height of summer
when it's 32°C at the beach (and warmer inland), temperatures are refreshingly
cooler in the Troodos, making the mountains ideal for hiking or simply relaxing.
December to February are the winter months, bringing the
possibility of rain, but still an average of six hours of bright sunshine a day.
At this time of year smaller Mediterranean destinations shut down for the
season, but not so Cyprus. The many important heritage sites and museums are all
at their least crowded in winter. Into early February there is occasional rain,
and often snow in the Troodos mountains - ideal for skiing!
The first orchids bloom in January, and by mid-February the
countryside is alive with fresh green meadows and almond trees in bloom. March
days can still be cool (daytime temperatures around 18°C) but steadily moderate.
Early spring is a wonderful time to visit to Cyprus, with pleasant daytime
temperatures and many of the ancient ruins framed by a carpet of red anemones
and other wildflowers. If in summer Cyprus is the place to bask in the sun, then
spring is the time to savour the natural beauty of the island in bloom.

(Paphos is about 25 miles east of Pissouri, with similar
weather to Pissouri; Akrotiri is closer to Pissouri than Paphos or Limassol, near
the southern-most point of Cyprus, but tends to be the coolest coastal part of
Cyprus, and temperatures are likely to be slightly higher than Akrotiri in Pissouri.)

The currency in Cyprus is the euro, with 100 cents
making a euro. Cyprus joined the euro on
1 January 2008, until then the currency was the Cyprus Pound. The events
of March 2013, when the Cyprus banking system was destroyed becuase the EU Euro
Group refused to help Cyprus' banks overcome their losses caused by the EU
bailout of Greece, and instead forced bank depositors to suffer those loses, has
made many Cypriots wish they had kept their own currency.
