Climate in North Cyprus
An island for all seasons
North Cyprus enjoys the benefits from the Mediterranean climate with long hot summers, short winters and little rain. The temperature in summer reaches 30/35 degrees centigrade, while winter is mild with an average rainfall of 500 mm. Fascinating multi-coloured vegetation very dominates autumn, winter and spring. Olive and carob trees thrive in the country side, together with citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons and grapefruit plus melons and vegetables. Mountains are covered with sweet-smelling pines. While the coastlines offer bushes of acacia and eucalyptus. The landscape is ideal for goats and sheep and tourists are often delighted to see flocks being shepherded along peaceful by-ways.
