The climate of Cyprus makes the island one of the healthiest places in the world. The long, dry summer fills the bathing beaches and pine clad mountains alike, where the climate is equally dry, sunny and bracing. The winter is mild and invigorating in the planes and the coastal belt (340 days of bright sunshine annually; lowest sea temperature in January 62F) where you can swim in the crystal clear blue sea or sunbathe on the lovely sandy beaches. On the mountains, snow begins to fall late December and skiing is usually possible from January to March.
