Cyprus has Greek island-style summers that warm up quickly, with temperatures sticking in the low 20s around April and May. In the middle of summer, highs are well into the 30s, and you can still get away with great beach weather (in the slightly more comfortable 20s) around September and October. Cyprus doesn’t get particularly cold; things hover in the late teens throughout winter, with the odd rain shower.
