What’s the weather like in Cyprus in June?
Sitting in the east of the Mediterranean off Turkey’s south coast and north of Egypt, you’ll get hot, dry and sunny weather if you’re going to Cyprus in June. Thanks to its location close to Southwest Asia, the island has some of the Mediterranean’s hottest weather, so it’s ideal if you love the sun.
The Mediterranean Sea’s breezes and waters will keep you cool on the coast, which is welcome as things get hot in summer. Cyprus’ north and south have similar weather, although westerly winds mean that the east’s warmer and drier than the west. You’ll be cooler if you go to one of the island’s mountain ranges, which give the east coast its shelter.
Cyprus has slight differences in weather around the island, but tourist hotspot Paphos has a lovely high of 28ºC in June. The sea’s perfect for swimming at 24ºC, while you’ll find the evenings nice and pleasant. Humidity’s moderate, while there’s hardly any rain, with an average of just 2mm, so you can look forward to 12 long and dry hours of sunshine from the 14 hours of daylight each day. UV levels will be very high so be careful in the sun and use plenty of sun cream. The sun sets around 8pm.
Things to Do
There are lots of unspoilt parts of the coastline, so you can find quiet little stretches of sand all for yourself; the weather’s ideal for long days at the beach. Dip into Cyprus’ rich history at its Greek, Roman and Turkish sites, seek eternal beauty at Aphrodite’s Rock, or enjoy the fun at the WaterWorld or Fasouri Watermania waterparks.
