May has to be one of the nicest months to visit Cyprus – the weather is more stable, warm but not too hot, and the mass crowds of tourist have not yet descended on the island.
That means more space on the beach, less people in cities and towns and enjoyable weather condition to explore the island all day round.
If you’re planning to book a holiday in Cyprus, my vote goes for May, perhaps start of June the latest. Unlike the April, the weather does not have so many crazy spells and the rain season is pretty much done by this time.
The prices are also a lot more competitive as the official start of the season is at the end of the month, so you can grab yourself a nice bargain in terms of accommodation prices and flight tickets.
The sea water also starts to get to the temperature that’s acceptable to most people and water temperature is rising the closer you get to June.
Most businesses that were closed for the winter start to reopen their doors at the end of March or during April, so there’s also zero chance you will miss out on any of the local experiences.
I popped some photos below from last year, taken in May for a little inspiration.
