North Cyprus Winter Sun

The winter sun in North Cyprus can be surprisingly warm, with temperatures today reaching around 20C in the sun. It is said that North Cyprus receives around 320 days of sunshine a year, averaging around 6 hours of sunshine a day during the winter, and up to 10 hours in the summer. The winter sun of Kyrenia is a far cry from the harsh and cold weather in the UK, as it very rarely drops below 5C in Cyprus even at night during the winter, and the only snow which falls is on the mountains in Kyrenia, which is very rare. You can expect a couple of days of rain during your winter holiday in North Cyprus, but generally the weather is mild and pleasant.
