An introduction to the beauty of Cyprus would be incomplete without discussing the island’s perfect atmosphere and wonderful culture. The Cyprus climate is a perfect Mediterranean mix of 24 C days and 17 C nights. You’ll never be too hot or too cold during your time in Cyprus. Cyprus experiences a very long summer, with roughly eight months being sunny. The remaining months are a short and mild winter that rarely brings snow to the coastal areas of the country. In Cyprus, you’ll be ready to spend most of the year by the beautiful oceanfront that rings the entire country.
You may want to take a dip in the waters, too. The Cyprus water temperature is wonderfully warm year-round, and its clear and calm surface is perfect for snorkeling.
It’s easy to be healthy in Cyprus. The Cypriot diet is characteristically Mediterranean and is heavy on wholesome vegetables like zucchini, okra, artichokes, grape leaves, chickpeas, lentils, avocados, pistachios, parsley, and lemons.
Fresh food is the rule rather than the exception in Cyprus. Walking through the city streets of Nicosia, you’ll easily find the open-air vegetable markets that are filled with an abundance of fresh produce. Likewise, in the many cafes of Cyprus, delicious freshly brewed coffee and souvlaki roasting on a spit make for a wonderful gustatory experience.
If you prefer to eat healthily by eating seafood, Cyprus is the place for you. Cypriots eat all manner of oceangoing creatures, ranging from octopi to sea bass. Calamari is also very popular on the island, as is salted cod. Traditional Greek standbys like hummus and dolma are also easy to find and delectable to snack on.
Cyprus wouldn’t be heavily influenced by the Greeks if it wasn’t enthusiastic about yogurt. The Cypriots take yogurt to a new level of artfulness, and it’s extremely healthy to boot.
Many people choose to live in Cyprus because of its wonderful environment. Significant numbers of expats from Greece, the UK, Romania, and Bulgaria make their homes on the island.
