3. What clothes to wear in February

You will mostly use your summer clothes. At day time you will probably wear shorts, t-shirt, swimming suit etc. You should also have a sweater and a pair of pants for the night or in case the weather turns a bit cooler than normal. Below are a few photos I have taken during January so that you can get a better idea of the weather and what most people wear.

5. Things to do in February

Summer activities on the beach are also good in February. Sun is still hot and water is warm so you can keep sunbathing and swimming. Water parks will not close till February. It is better to plan your excursions around the island for early morning or late afternoon to avoid the sun at its peak. Wine Festival that has started in the end of August continues in September so do not miss the chance to spend great time outdoor trying different local wines and traditional Cypriot food and watching dance and theater performances.
