It’s lovely to take a break in autumn and Cyprus is the perfect destination for your autumnal holiday this year. The temperature is still hot enough to sunbathe and swim in the sea, but without being uncomfortably hot. In the peak of summer the sun can be just too much for many of us, forcing us indoors while the sun is at its hottest. In autumn, you’ll feel comfortable all day, giving you more time to get out and about, discovering more of this special island.
While you have all the activities and attractions in autumn as you would in summer, you have some extra delights such as the wonderful autumnal scenery. Take a hike in the Troodos mountains and delight your senses with the rich oranges, gold and crimson hues of the autumn foliage. It truly is magical. Just imagine, taking a dip in the warm ocean in the morning, then heading out for a mountain hike in the afternoon!
Beautiful beaches without the crowds
The majority of tourists will have left the island, leaving you with a feeling of tranquillity, when even the most popular beaches are now quiet and peaceful. Coral Bay is a great place to visit in autumn as in summer this does get busy due to the wonderful golden sands and the stunning backdrop of the cliffs. In autumn you’ll get some amazing photographs too. There are so many hidden beaches in Cyprus, if you want one all to yourself you can actually find one if you’re prepared to get away from the most popular beaches and find the more isolated or less frequented beaches such as Lara Bay and Latchi Beach.
Enjoy the best autumn scenery
The autumn scenery in Cyprus is just gorgeous, and there are some great places to get the most breathtaking views and take some stunning photographs of the vibrant autumn colours. Head to the top of Platres village for beautiful views across the Troodos mountains or take a trip to the Kalidonia Waterfall, one of the tallest waterfalls in Cyprus, and watch the waters cascade 12 metres down the cliffs.
