When to go to Paphos
For those looking to book a summer break during the school holidays, Paphos can be tricky. You will definitely find the hottest weather in July and August but it would be very hard to find a very cheap holiday unless you've booked well in advance. For the best of the weather and kinder prices try the months either side of summer (September, October, May and June). Winter definitely offers the best chance of cheap holidays in Paphos, however, the weather can be very variable so be careful of booking if you're looking for a beach holiday. If you're feeling lucky you could chance your luck and try to bag a bargain by hunting out a last minute holiday deal.
Many a Cypriot will tell you that spring is when their island looks its best. From March onwards the whole island is awash with yellow flowers, wild orchids and blossom-filled trees.
Some of Cyprus's biggest draws are the Roman ruins. Go to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Paphos Archeological Park and you'll practically get the place all to yourself. Imagine; just you, a village of grand Roman villas and intricate 1,800-year-old mosaics.
Paphos is Aphrodite country. The goddess of love was said to have risen out of the sea near Paphos, and the Petra tou Romiou rock which marks the spot is another popular attraction which is just as good with the cooler weather.
Paphos' superb climate means fewer bars and restaurants close down for the winter compared to other Mediterranean resorts. And by spring they're in full swing again
Go in early March and you might spot some of Cyprus' other pale pink winter visitors; record numbers of flamingos have been spotted in Cyprus recently. They gather at Larnaca Salt Lake and a few other spots on the island, usually from October to March each year.
