Autumn beach holidays in Cyprus
Its southerly position makes autumn in Cyprus a baking-hot season, with temperatures frequently pushing into the 30s: ample reason to sample the delights its beaches have to offer. Head for the stretches of sand around Agia Napa and Protaras, on the island’s east coast, and if you’ve got the kids in tow make a beeline for the shallows of Makronissos Beach. Whether you like your beaches replete with powder-fine white sand, hidden in coves or backed by sea-caves, Cyprus has got it covered. Konnos Bay is an intimate spot favoured by locals, and you’re unlikely to see water as clear as in the dreamily-named Fig Tree Bay. Grab a cold refreshment at one of the beachside tavernas, pitch up under a parasol and feel your stresses ebb away.
