Weather in Cyprus in October

The weather in October in Cyprus still allows you to soak up the sun during the day. However, it does get chilly in the evening, so we recommend bringing long sleeves with you on your trip.

At the same time, the sea is warm enough, which allows vacationers not only to enjoy the fresh sea air, but also to swim quite comfortably.

The weather is mostly dry, rainy days are usually no more than 4 per month, so in addition to a beach holiday, you can safely plan all kinds of excursions and study trips around the island. But if you are going to visit the mountain ranges, you must take into account that the temperature in the mountains will be several degrees lower than on the coast, so you should take warmer clothes and shoes with you.

In the second half of the month, there may be a slight decrease in temperature and an increase in the likelihood of precipitation.

On average, temperatures in October in Cyprus are:

  • Day: +24°C…+28°C
  • Night: +15°C…+18°C
  • Sea: +24°C…+26°C
