In October the weather in Cyprus is warm and sunny. Many visitors say that the weather in October is perfect, because they can enjoy the sun without the heat, humidity and sweat of summer.

2. What clothes to wear October

You will mostly use your summer clothes. At day time you will probably wear shorts, t-shirt, swimming suit etc. You should also have a sweater and a pair of pants for the night or in case the weather turns a bit cooler than normal. If you are staying at the villages around Troodos mountains, you should bring with you a light jacket for the night. Below are a few photos I have taken during October so that you can get a better idea of the weather and what most people wear.

3. Sleeping at night

For sleeping you do not need to use the A/C or have the windows open. The room temperature is comfortable and a piece of sheet is enough. Mosquitoes will not bother you in October.

4. Going to the beach

The sea water temperature depends on your destination. In the south coasts of Limassol, Larnaca and Ayia Napa the waters are shallower and warmer with temperatures of 24-26 °C in October. The west cost of Paphos and northern coasts of Latchi have colder waters with temperatures of 22-24 °C in October.

5. Things to do in October

Summer activities on the beach are also good in October. Sun is still hot and water is warm so you can keep sunbathing and swimming. Water parks will not close till October. It is better to plan your excursions around the island for early morning or late afternoon to avoid the sun at its peak. Wine Festival that has started in the end of August continues in September so do not miss the chance to spend great time outdoor trying different local wines and traditional Cypriot food and watching dance and theater performances.
