Cyprus climate overview

The Island of Cyprus at the eastern end of the Mediterranean remains divided between the Turkish north and Greek-Cypriot south. Its economy relies on agricultural exports, supplemented by light industry and tourism.

The Troodos Mountains in the southwest are volcanic and scenic. The higher slopes have been reforested with pine and cedar trees while lower slopes support vineyards and citrus fruit plantations. Embedded within the mountains are many villages such as Omodhos with ancient monasteries and Byzantine churches.

A long narrow mountain range, composed mainly of limestone, runs along the northern coast of Cyprus. The northern slopes are well clothed in pine forest, in contrast to the southern slopes, which have little more than scrub vegetation exposing the light coloured rock beneath.

The Mesaoria Plain is the lowland region lying between the two mountain ranges. Its fertile soil supports large areas of wheat and barley, as well as the distinctive yellow mustard crop during the spring.

Coastal areas are a mixture of sandy beaches and rugged wild shoreline with coves and bays, such as Coral Bay in the west.

Cyprus has a sub-tropical climate with a summer dry season and summer temperatures that are hot inland, while sea breezes keep the coasts and mountains tolerably warm. Winters are typically cool and breezy, even cold in the mountains.

Summers are dry and parched, but rain is possible from November to March and falls mostly over the Troodos Mountains, dumping enough snow to maintain ski resorts at the highest levels. The eastern half of the island is drier, in fact winter rains here can be so unreliable that some years near-drought conditions prevail.
