What’s the weather like in Cyprus in August?
Sitting off the south coast of Turkey and just north of Egypt, Cyprus enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate as well as high temperatures from nearby Southwest Asia. With weather similar in both the north and south, August is one of the hottest months of the year although you’ll be kept cool by breezes on the coast. Cyprus has two mountain ranges that protect the east from westerly winds so you’ll be warmer and drier here.
The average high in popular Paphos on the west coast is 30ºC in August. Things stay lovely and warm in the evenings as temperatures only drop to 21ºC at night, so you won’t need much more than shorts and t-shirts. The normal sea temperature’s 28ºC while humidity is high. There’s not usually any rain in August and you can expect 11 hours of sunshine from the 13 hours of daylight each day. UV levels will be very high so bring plenty of sun cream. Sunset’s just before 8pm at the start of the month.
