The Mediterranean is full of stunning islands and countries that have a lot to offer visitors from all over the world, and while it’s not hard to find a destination that’s a little off the beaten track, you’ll probably want to find a balance between modern living and traditional culture. As the third largest island, Cyprus is often thought to offer tourists just that, but what if you want to book your trip after the season?
Cyprus in autumn
One of the fantastic things about Cyprus is that the weather is probably at its best in the autumn months of September and October, and as the high season has just ended, the attractions are open for a little longer before winter sets in. Temperatures soar in the summer but are more bearable in the autumn, making it the perfect time to take a boat trip, visit the mountains and still enjoy a day at the beach. If you fancy a dip in the sea, the waters are still warm until around the end of September (or even mid-October if there’s a heatwave), so you won’t have to miss out. Watersports are still very popular in this country during these months, and in recent years it’s become increasingly common to see visitors with their phones out recording their thrills and spills. If you fancy doing the same but are worried about your camera skills, don’t worry; CapCut’s video stabiliser uses nothing less than the latest gyroscopic AI algorithms to reduce blur and motion blur so you can see every second as clearly as if the footage had been shot by a professional.
There’s so much to see and do in Cyprus throughout the year that you’ll be spoilt for choice. You can visit one of the many churches, monasteries and cathedrals dotted around the island, take a boat trip, visit Paphos Zoo, the Camel Park in Mazotos, Larnaca and much more. As it only takes two and a half hours to drive straight from Paphos to Ayia Napa (from one end of the island to the other), visitors won’t be limited in the attractions they want to see. This means you can have an amazing day at the Tomb of the Kings and visit architectural beauty before spending a night on the town in one of the clubbing capitals of the world with little travel time.
Why not visit Cyprus in autumn?
With the crowds largely gone with the start of the school year, early autumn is the perfect time to get out and about in Cyprus. There will still be plenty of visitors, but it won’t be as crowded as in July and August, so you’ll have an easier time hailing a taxi, finding a table in a restaurant and booking excursions. CapCut’s YouTube video editor will allow users to capture their holiday footage and upload it in 4K to their favourite social media channel – all without any skills and at no cost.
