Yes October is usually still good weather especially as you say you are thinking of late September early October.You should certainly be able to get a sun tan. The Eastern side of the island has the best beaches but does close down for the winter but should still be OK when you are going. Otherwise most of the other places are all year round resorts.

Have a look and see what you like the look of and come back if you have any more questions.

Hi, If good beaches are important to you stay on the eastern side ,Pernera/Protaras/Ayia/Napa.Yes these resorts shut down for the winter but not until the end of Oct ,some hotels stay open later.

Sept is my favorite month for visiting Cyprus ,Oct is also nice you should get a tan ,good weather for sightseeing the humid heat of the summer has gone but is still hot ,you may get the odd storm around the last couple of weeks but they soon pass.Julie

We've been mid-Sept / early Oct a few times & alwats enjoyed good weather. As has been said, it's not so humid, so sunbathing is more pleasant. We've also enjoyed hiring a car (& borrowed from ex-pat friends!) for site-seeing regular & not-so-well known sites. It's quieter & often we've been able to take pics with no people in them!

We stay in Paphos or with friends, 25kl outside. Driving is ok as they drive on the 'correct' side of the road :-)

Hi we were in Paphos first 2 weeks in October last year. Weather fine for sunbathing, although was surprised as it was quite windy. Also the last couple of days of our holiday the weather seemed to have turned and not good enough for sunbathing. If I was going again it would either be mid Sept or last week in Sept/first week of Oct. Temperature dropped quite a bit at night. Enjoy your holiday
