The wakening of the nature that was started in February continues and reaches its peak in March. March opens the spring in Cyprus. The weather becomes warmer and it rains less than in winter months. With days getting longer, there is almost 8 hours of sunshine a day. Average maximum temperature reaches about 19°C-20°C on the plains and 10°C on the mountain ranges. Average minimum temperature varies from 9°C-10°C in the coastal areas and 7°C inland to 3°C on the mountains. Like in winter months, there is a small risk of hail, and frost is possible inland.
March is a great season to get out and enjoy most outdoor activities. It is an excellent period to experience long countryside walks and natural trails. Nature in March is at its best. This month the countryside is alive with green fields and many beautiful wild flowers blooming around villages and in suburbs of any city. Some of the most known and common are anemones and cyclamen. There are also many wild orchids that bloom at this period in Cyprus.
Recommended clothes are light winter apparel with medium-weight wear.
