Most travelers head to Paphos during the summer months to take advantage of the nice weather and golden beaches. August is the hottest month in the area and even then, temperatures rarely climb over ninety degrees. Rain during the summer months is almost non-existent, making humidity very low in the area and the summer weather comfortable. The water stays relatively warm and can be enjoyed throughout the summer months.
Winter in Paphos is not especially cold. It stays between fifty degrees and sixty degrees all throughout the day during most of the winter. However, the winter months are the rainy months in Paphos. December and January each see about ten inches of rain. Many travelers avoid the area during this time.
Because summer is the time to go, this is also the busiest tourist season. Visitors wishing to avoid the crowds while still taking advantage of the excellent beach weather should visit during the late spring and early fall, just before or after the major influx of tourists.

|March||A bit like the UK spring/summer. It can be warm and sunny, but also cold and rainy. Sea is “bracing”, but OK for those used to swimming in the UK . You need a jumper/coat in the evening.|
|April||Like an English summer. When it is sunny it can get very hot, but there will also be some rainy days. In early April the sea is just about OK; by the end of the month it is fine. Evenings can be cool.|
|May/June||Hot and Sunny, with very little chance of any prolonged rain. The sea and swimming pool are very warm by the end of June.|
