If you love to get off the beaten track and truly explore a destination, you’ll love Cyprus in the autumn. This beautiful island has so many amazing sites to discover. Of course, there are the gorgeous golden sand beaches that bring sun seekers flocking to these shores, but there’s so much more besides. Here you can step back in time at the many historic and archaeological sites. You can be at one with nature on the hiking trails that bring with them unexpected delights and spectacular views. There are parks, ancient churches, and unspoiled traditional villages. It’s all waiting for you in Cyprus.
But why visit in the autumn?
Well, there are several reasons why the intrepid explorer might choose to visit during the autumn months. Firstly, the weather is simply perfect for getting out and about. You’ll find that the sun shines nearly every day, making walking or cycling very pleasant. However, you won’t have the intense heat of the summer that can become a little overwhelming when you’re being more active, especially at midday. In addition, many people choose to come to Cyprus in the height of summer, and so you’ll find everywhere a little quieter and more peaceful in the autumn, even the major tourist attractions that can bring in large numbers of visitors in peak season.
Find the best places to visit
In the autumn, you can take your pick of the main sights without the crowds, so it’s a great time to visit the most popular locations such as the iconic love bridge, an ideal opportunity to take some fantastic photos. You should also take a trip out to the Ayia Napa sculpture park, you’ll find the weather lovely for exploring this expansive park. If you’re looking for breathtaking views, then you simply mustn’t forget to take a hike up to Profitis Elias church. It’s quite a climb, but the views from the top are a great reward for your effort.
From the beach, to the forest
Of course, just because you’re visiting in autumn doesn’t mean you can’t have plenty of beach time. The weather is still ideal for sunbathing, swimming in the sea, and enjoying all the water sports that Cyprus has to offer. The beach certainly has a great lure, and you can spend many relaxing hours there, but do take time to get further afield and head up to the forests in the Troodos mountains as you’ll be astounded by just how spectacular it looks in the autumn. With the trees displaying their autumnal colors, your eyes will be filled with a vibrant array of shades of red, orange, and gold. It truly is spectacular. You’ll find plenty of places to enjoy a picnic, and soak up the scenery, or you could even spend the night camping out under the stars.
