Sun, crystal blue sea that is even warm enough to swim in during the middle of winter
When the rain beats down on the other Mediterranean islands and along the Spanish and Greek coast, the sun is still shining over Cyprus. Responsible for this mild climate is the special location and its proximity to the African coast. Every year huge high pressure areas develop over Siberia and the Sahara desert, in which the cool and damp Atlantic air protrudes. Towards Cyprus however warm and dry air originating from the North African veldts and desert areas flows, which creates constant moderate temperatures for the country with little rainfall. Only in the summer months it can become unbearably hot – that is why we at Eurobike recommend a visit during the other three seasons. Citrus fruit and delicious wines thrive here all year round and have already been cultivated for donkey's years. However, away from the plantations the light breeze flows through romantic olive groves, little forests consisting of eucalyptus, juniper and pine and that are laced with wild herbs.
