Weather in Cyprus in June

The first month of summer welcomes guests with dry and sunny weather. Long hot days give way to pleasant fresh evenings, which provides an excellent opportunity for a carefree beach holiday combined with exciting evening leisure.

  • Air temperature during the day: about 30 °C
  • Air temperature at night: around 20 °C
  • Water temperature: 20-24 °C

At the same time, the temperature in the center of the island can often be several degrees higher than in coastal cities.

If the temperatures of the coastal resorts seem too high for you, take a trip through the territories of the Kyrenia and Troodos mountain ranges. In the mountainous areas of Cyprus, it can be about 4 degrees cooler than on the coast.

Cyprus in June is great for a beach holiday. There is no crowding of people typical for the high tourist season yet, and the guests of the island have the opportunity to enjoy their holidays without the noisy tourist flow. However, towards the end of the month, the sea warms up, tourist activity increases, and the beaches are filled with vacationers. Therefore, for those who prefer a secluded holiday, it is better to focus on other time periods or rent a car and go on a trip along the coast, where you will surely discover picturesque corners.

In June, UV levels are quite high in Cyprus, so it is recommended to be careful in the sun and use sunscreen both on the beach and during excursions and boat trips.

The main entertainment in Cyprus is, of course, a beach holiday. The weather in Cyprus in June creates ideal conditions for both sunbathing and swimming and water sports.

But the study of archaeological monuments is best done early in the morning or late in the evening, when the heat subsides.

In addition to visiting historical sites, those who want to diversify their leisure time on a June day can:

  • get an adrenaline rush during the rapid descents from the slides in the best water parks in Cyprus, for example, Aphrodite in Paphos, Water World in Ayia Napa, Fasouri Watermania near Limassol;
  • go scuba diving and see with your own eyes a variety of caves and grottoes, many marine life, the sunken ferry Zenobia, underwater statues and sea turtles in Green Bay, impressive scenery in Konnos Bay, as well as visit other interesting dive sites;
  • go on a small sea cruise, including snorkeling, barbecue or other entertainment, or for a walk in the mountains;
  • visit the Etel Winery and taste the best Cypriot wines;
  • hone your golf skills on the magnificent courses of Korineum Golf & Beach Resort, Aphrodite Hills Golf Club, Secret Valley Golf Resort, Minthis Golf Club and other popular Cypriot golf clubs;

Holidays and events

Cypriots love and know how to have fun. In addition to national and religious holidays, exciting festivals, solemn and cultural events are held in various cities of Cyprus. What holidays await residents and guests of the Mediterranean pearl in June?

Shakespeare Festival in Kourion

Every year since 1962, in the ancient city of Kourion, located about 18 kilometers from Limassol, a group of volunteers known as Performing Arts for Cyprus Charities (PACC), organizes productions of the plays of the great English playwright.

The performance is staged in an ancient amphitheater. Spectators visiting this event can admire not only the inspired play of enthusiastic actors, but also impressive views of the surroundings from a hill.

The whole process is organized and managed exclusively by volunteers, and the proceeds are donated by them to charitable purposes. Over the past 60 years, charities have received over €100,000 in donations from the PACC.

Kataklysmos (Water Festival)

An annual festival associated with the biblical story of Noah's Ark is celebrated in June throughout most of Cyprus, including resort towns such as Ayia Napa, Limassol, Larnaca, Paphos, Polis and Paralimni.

Each city holds a number of its own events dedicated to the holiday. These can be games, music and traditional dances, fireworks, flyboard shows, jet ski competitions, shadow theater performances, various concerts of local popular bands and, of course, delicious food and plentiful dousing with water.

The date of the holiday is not fixed and may change from year to year.
