weather in Cyprus in August
We just hit peak season in Cyprus, summer is now in full bloom. With average temperatures of 27c, highs of 32c and lows of 21c we are sure to be enjoying the summer at its best. There are 13hours of sunshine in August and only a chance of 0.4mm of rain on 1 day, but it is very rare that I have ever seen it rain in July or August. (us locals would love a bit of rain, but we know our tourists wouldn’t).
Beaches are open throughout the month of August and you can expect for most beaches to be quite busy. Getting there early is a nice time of day when its not to hot or late afternoon is popular. The average sea temperature in August is 27c.
Many of the beaches in Cyprus have the blue flag awards and you can find little coves out of the way.
Weddings in Cyprus in August
Its August, the weather will be hot and could be humid. Try to arrange a wedding when the weather is cooler, but make sure you have makeup that is suitable for hot weather and expect your hair not to always cooperate. Bare in mind you might want to bring something to dab your skin or face with for photos, some guests have used mist sprays for arms and legs and fans.
Packing for the weather in Cyprus in August
Pack your summer wear and forget the rain jackets! Shorts, swimsuits, dresses and flip flops. We would recommend you bringing a hat and loose short sleeve T.shirt (if you get burnt you will be able to put this on in the day to protect you- also a good idea for children). Don’t forget a hat. In the evenings most people will be wearing summer shorts / dresses and tops but if you do have a little to much sun it might be an idea to pack a light cardigan or linen / light trousers just in case you get chilly.
Renting holidays villas in Cyprus in August
As with July the villas and apartments will be getting quite full in August. Its a great way to enjoy the day, a pool to relax beside without fighting for a sun bed, free wifi (in most properties), air conditioning and BBQ evenings. Make the most of Augusts tourist attractions and festivals as well.
