CYPRUS WINDSURFING HOLIDAYS

Cyprus is a beautiful tourist destination and a great spot for windsurfers. It is the third-largest island in the Mediterranean stretching 150 miles from the west coast to its easternmost tip and 60 mlles from north to south. This outstanding island offers clear seas, warm waters and amazing wind.

English is spoken in all the shops, restaurants and hotels. Cyprus has also a remarkably low crime rate, which makes it an ideal destination for families and couples.

Climate

Cyprus is an all-year-round destination and experiences long dry summers and mild winters that are separated by short autumn and spring seasons. Summer has high temperatures (average 32°C) with cloudless skies, but the sea breeze creates a pleasant atmosphere in the coastal areas. Winters are mild (average 16°C), with some rain and snow on Troodos Mountains.

Sea temperature

The temperature in the open sea hovers above 22°C from June to November, climbing to 28°C in August. During the three coolest months of January to March, average sea temperature is still an acceptable 16° or 17°C. There are no significant daily fluctuations in sea water temperatures, except in very shallow waters less than one metre deep.

Wind and sea state

In broad lines Cyprus’s wind is characterised by two seasons: steady southwest sea breeze in the summer averaging 16knots 5 to 6 days per week, and wind variable in strength, frequency and direction during the winter. Sea state ranges from flat with the occasional little waves in the summer to small chop and double head high waves in the winter.

Why You'll love Wind Surfing in Cyprus !

  • A great all round holiday with lovely accommodation, strong winds, and a family friendly atmosphere
  • Awesome jumping conditions and strong wind for advanced sailors
  • Breathtaking views from the hotels on the hillsides

Many people think the windy bay is all there is to Pissouri, but 3km up the road is the village of Pissouri. The traditional Cypriot village has and a fantastic nightlife, especially on Wednesday, when there are balancing acts and dancers in the square, adding to the amazing atmosphere in the town square.

Pissouri is a great all round kitesurfing holiday destination, as it offers lovely accommodation, strong winds, and a family friendly atmosphere. Generally the water is choppy, though the bay is more protected from wind driven swell, as the wind is lighter. But for advanced kiters, they only need to go out past the wind line for full force wind, and awesome jumping conditions.

The properties in Cyprus are built on the hillsides as its cooler in the summer, but also because they allow breathtaking views over the coast. Which is just how many of the hotels in Pissouri are built.

The people of Cyprus are known for being warm and welcoming. Though their native tongue is Greek, English is widely spoken all over the island. In a world where violence is ever increasing, the crime rate on the island is exceptionally low.
