Weather in Cyprus in September

Air temperature

Water temperature
20 - 25ос

The calendar reached its last summer day. In Europe, rain, falling leaves, and a cooler weather arrive. However, in Cyprus only sultry time is over, which forced the local residents to leave the island for a while. Summer starts now: a soft, gentle, comfortable season, called the velvet season.

Cyprus’ hotels are left with regret and hope for a return by the departed families with children and the young people, for whom it’s time to get ready for the new school year and to return back to their jobs. Around the pool and on the beaches silence and tranquility reign: the respectable British sipping cocktails, driving conversations leisurely.

Quiet evenings; in the tourist areas of the cities there are noticeably fewer tourists now, but all the restaurants are still operating.
