Cyprus Weather in February: An Overview

The weather in February in Cyprus is pretty crazy and very unpredictable.

You can have sunny warm days that make you tempted to pull out your summer clothes and get out of the fridges they call houses in here. After that, there will be a downpour so bad, that streets are flooded and the roads turn to rivers.

Last year we had a blast and a super warm sunny winter but it looks like this year, it came back to show us what it’s supposed to be.

The weather variations are quite big year on year, so checking the forecast in advance will give you a better idea of what to expect, and more importantly what to pack with you.

It is very likely that if you’re booking your holiday for February, you can expect some rainy and windy days, but also some sunshine.

How to get the best of both worlds? As I mentioned earlier, to ensure you can enjoy your holiday to the most, it’s best to wait for last-minute flight deals after checking the weather and making sure it will be decent enough for your trip.

The weather forecasts long time in advance are very inaccurate as the conditions change very frequently.

Cyprus in February for Holiday?

If you’re wondering whether February is a good month to come for a holiday, I would recommend waiting till the very end of the month or even better, till March.

The holiday resorts are actually all closed until the start of March and the same applies to a lot of restaurants in busy spots like Ayia Napa or my local Coral Bay.

Below are some photos that I took on sunny days, and even for such a rainy month like February, there were plenty of those (from my posts on Paphos ZOO and Londa Hotel).

I did not get out as much as usual in February and am for now enjoying the indoors before spring arrives in full force.

The bees and blooming trees are certainly a very nice reminder that it’s just around the corner.

What to Pack for Cyprus in February

February belongs to one of the coldest months of the year in Cyprus, and with unpredictable weather you need to be prepared for a bit of rain and plenty of windy days.
