Ayia Napa has a Mediterranean climate which entails hot summers and mild winters. As it is still winter in February, the weather remains cool, yet still mild and pleasant. It may not be beach weather yet, but it is guaranteed to be a warmer alternative to the British climate.

February in Ayia Napa is a tiny bit warmer than January. Although the overall average temperature and the average daily low temperature stay the same and still are 12°C and 7°C respectively, the average daily high has increased by one degree and is now a pretty comfortable 17°C. The coldest day of the year is February 2, which has a low temperature of 7°C and a high of 16°C. That average daily low remains pretty much constant throughout the month, while the average daily high increases from 16°C in the beginning of the month to 18°C toward the end. The sea temperature, on the other hand, drops one degree compared to January. The water is now 17°C cold (or warm, depending on your perspective). This is as cold as the sea water ever gets in Ayia Napa—a minimum low monthly temperature that's shared with the month of March.

Cloud cover was highest in January, but starts to decrease ever so slowly in February. The first days of the month have an average of 46% of cloud cover; the last days have 42%. February is still one of the three cloudiest months of the year, after January and December. This high percentage of cloud cover is reflected in the fact that February is also the third-least sunny month of the year, again after January and December. Now, there are 9 hours of sunshine per day, which is pretty good since there are 10.29 hours of daylight in the beginning of the month and 11.24 hours at the end. Most of the day seems to be sunny, even in winter.

In terms of rainfall, February comes in third, once again behind January and December. Ayia Napa receives 52mm of precipitation in February, spread out over 10 days of rainfall. Both numbers are the third-highest of all months. Rainfall is most likely to occur in the form of moderate rain, which happens on 46% of all days with precipitation. Thunderstorms are second and occur on 35% of those days. Light rain happens on 17% of rainy days. The chance of rainfall decreases in the course of the month though. While on February 1 there is a 43% probability of rain, on February 28 this has decreased to 38%.

Where to stay

The Grecian Sands Hotel offers great value for visitors to Ayia Napa. There is free Wi-Fi, two restaurants on-site and a BBQ night for half- or full-board guests. The hotel also has an indoor and outdoor pool, as well as a spa and is popular with couples and families.

The Napa Mermaid Hotel is another hotel with many amenities, including an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and fitness centre. It's also conveniently located just across from the beach, close to the bustling harbour. There is no charge for using the hotel's parking. Entertainment is provided on-site and includes themed evenings.

Eating and drinking out

360 Lounge is a well-established nightclub in the centre of the resort. It takes up two floors: the lower level is where food is served and where sports games might be shown, while upstairs you will find a roof terrace and cocktail bar. This bar and lounge is open throughout the entire day—in February, only the lower level is open.

Another popular evening hang-out is Aloft Music Bar. This is a great place to go for live music, from local Cypriote bands and artists to renowned DJs. The interior is cozy, well-designed and trendy, while the dancefloor is permanently occupied by party-goers.

Yet another major nightlife venue in Ayia Napa is River Reggae. It's the largest and one of the oldest after-party clubs in the resort, featuring swimming pools, tropical decorations and indoor and outdoor dance rooms.

Things to do

There's plenty to do in Ayia Napa beyond the nightlife. The area offers some great shopping facilities and is ideal for bargain hunters in search of a deal, with cheap prices on a range of goods and plenty of locally made handcrafts on offer too.

When you're done shopping, you may want to take a look inside the Ayia Napa Monastery, also known as Our Lady of the Forests, from which the town gets its name. Built in the 16th century, this famous structure was one of the last to be constructed by the Venetians. It's built over a cave in which an icon of the Virgin Mary was found. This made it a holy place and a pilgrim destination. Nowadays, the monastery is still a religious place where people can find peace and comfort.

Day trips to the surrounding areas are also popular with tourists. Nearby Paphos is a World Heritage Site and contains a number of historical sites including ancient ruins. 

Something completely different is the Parko Paliatso Luna Park. It's the largest fair in Cyprus and has no less than 25 attractions, from bumper cars and carousels to a Ferris wheel and Europe's highest ejection seat ride. This is a great place to spend a day!
