What’s the weather like in Paphos in May?

Paphos is in southwest Cyprus, close to the south coast of Turkey. Paphos is known to have the very best of Cyprus’ lovely weather as it is warm all year round. Things are heating up in May as summer gets closer, and as temperatures rise the amount of rain falls. The Mediterranean will keep you cool with its breezes, although the Sahara Desert does the opposite when it sends over warm winds.


The average high in Paphos is 24ºC in May, which is great for relaxing on the beach or by the pool. Things stay quite pleasant in the evenings, which cool to 15ºC. The sea temperature is 20ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s 5mm of rain over a single day, and you can expect 14 hours of daylight with ten hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so make sure you bring plenty of sun cream. The sun goes down at around 7.45pm for much of the month.
