4. Thing to do at Nicosia in Summer

If spring is the right time to enjoy the natural beauty of Cyprus then summer months are perfect for basking in the sun. June is ideal for swimming, sunbathing, and many other beach and water activities from sailing to scuba diving. Visit also one of the water parks that are located in Limassol, Paphos and Agia Napa areas. If you decide to explore the archeological sites, then do it early in the morning or in late afternoon to avoid the hottest part of the day. If the summer heat makes you tired, try visiting the Troodos mountain where cooler weather makes it perfect for hiking or simply relaxing. There are also different cultural events that take place every year in June, for example Shakespearean nights at the ancient Kourion theater in Limassol area.
