In the Mediterranean countries, the velvet season is September, and beach holidays at a later time are no longer possible. The only state that is not included in this list is Cyprus. In October on the island you can recharge your batteries and get an unforgettable experience. The sandy beaches of the island have been repeatedly marked as one of the cleanest, and families with young children loved the smooth entrance to the sea.
Cyprus - weather in October
At this time, the island is ending summer and early autumn begins. So, the daily temperature ranges from 28 to 32, the water warms up to 23-26 degrees. The only thing that can overshadow the rest at the end of the month is an increase in the number of cloudy days and the beginning of the rainy season, which falls in November.
The sun is not so scorching as in the summer, so the risks of getting burns are not so great, although it is not recommended to sunbathe without the use of sunscreens.
Flight and transfer
The flight time to Cyprus is about four or a few hours, which suggests that the road is not tiring. If you choose Larnaca as a vacation destination - the city where the airport is located, then the road to the hotel will take no more than half an hour. Resorts such as Ayia Napa and Paphos are located at a distance, and the transfer can take about one and a half hours, but given the excellent quality of the roads and the comfort of vehicles, the trip will not cause inconvenience.

The second holiday, Ohi Day, is celebrated on October 28 and is associated with World War II, when Mussolini proposed neutrality to Greece in 1940, which he was denied, which in Greek sounds like “ooh.” This turned out to be aerial bombardment of Cyprus, but after 7 months of hostilities by the Greeks and Cypriots, Mussolini's troops were defeated.
