Please try to arrange your flights into Pafos International Airport (PFO). If you’re flying from the UK there are daily flights from Gatwick and many other UK airports by EasyJet, RyanAir, Jet2, BA, Thomson and others. There are also numerous flights from mainland Europe.

Paphos climate, like the rest of Cyprus, is a subtropical one that offers very mild winters (on the coast) and warm to hot summers. Snow is possible only in the Troodos mountains in the central part of the island. Rain occurs mainly in winter, with summer being generally dry. Between February and mid March there may be a chance of showers and potential for some cooler weather especially during the night time. From late March onwards the weather should be consistently warm.
When visiting Cyprus please remeber:
- Cyprus has UK power sockets. Make sure you check if you need an adapter.
- Local currency is Euros.
- Credit cards are widely accepted.
- English is spoken by the vast majority of the local population.
- Most rooms have kettles, fridges and coffee making facilities.
- Free WiFi is available at most hotels. However, download speeds are not so fast.
Road cycling in Cyprus is superb and an experience not to be missed. The well-surfaced roads are very quiet and despite the rural landscape, there are tavernas and small shops. The riding is some of the hilliest in Europe with a multitude of long steady climbs particularly as you go inland. If you ascend all the way to Mount Olympus at 2000m prepare for significant temperature changes. In the winter months, it can regularly be 20 degrees on the coast and 0 degrees at the summit.
