The beginning of May when it is still not hot and the greenery has not yet been burnt by the sun it is good to enjoy nature, explore the countryside, visit the archeological sites and have a long walk along one of the many nature paths. While hiking in the countryside be careful though of snakes since May is their mating season which means you might see more of them out looking for a pair. By late May the weather is comfortable enough for visiting the beach, although the sea is still a bit chilly – about 19°C-21°C. Also in May many outdoor beach restaurant and bars that were closed for winter begin to open their doors to visitors. Water parks in Paphos, Limassol and Agia Napa are also already open.
