Although summer was definitely on its way in May, it is in June that summer officially arrives in Ayia Napa, Cyprus. The average low temperature is warming up significantly to 18°C. The average high temperature is now at 30°C. Both temperatures increase greatly in the course of the month. The low temperature in June rises from 18°C to 21°C, while the high temperature improves from 28°C in the beginning to 31°C at the end of the month. The overall average daily temperature in June is a very pleasant 24°C, which makes it the fourth-warmest month of the year, after July, August and September. The temperature of the Mediterranean Sea rises as well. It is now at an average of 24°C. June is without question the beginning of the prime tourist season in Ayia Napa.
Rainfall is virtually non-existent during the summer. There is an average of 1 mm of precipitation, which is spread out over just 2 days of rainfall. Only July, August and September receive even less rain. The chance that precipitation occurs lowers in the course of the month. On June 1, there is a 11% chance that you will experience some kind of precipitation. By the end of the month, on June 30, there is a mere 4% chance of rainfall. In case rainfall does occur, the two most likely types are thunderstorms (happening on 42% of days with rainfall) and moderate rain (on 38% of rainy days). Light rain can be expected on 17% of days with rainfall. All types are by far most likely to occur on June 1.
Cloud cover decreases greatly throughout June as well. While on June 1 there is 16% cloud cover, on June 30 there is only 8% cloud cover left. This means that the sky throughout June is clear to begin with, but opens up even more in the course of the month. The fact that there are less clouds results in more sunshine. The average June day receives no less than 14 hours of sunshine, making it the sunniest month of the year, together with July. With warm to hot temperatures and virtually constant sunshine, it's now the absolutely perfect weather to hit the beach.
The days are longest in June as well. There is, however, no real difference between their length in the course of the month. June 1 has 14.20 hours of daylight; June 21 is the longest day of the month and of the entire year with 14.29 daylight hours; and June 30 has 14.28 hours of daylight.
Where to stay
The Anthea Hotel Apartments is a nice accommodation option for groups of young people. Positioned close to the square, the hotel is far enough away that the noise from the many bars does not carry over, whilst remaining only a five-minute walk from the middle of the action—it is surrounded by a huge number of bars, nightclubs and restaurants. The apartment complex consists of 200 studios and one-bedroom apartments, all equipped with kitchenettes, bathrooms and a balcony. Additional facilities include three swimming pools, a children's pool, three pool bars, a games room and a shopping centre.
Panas Holiday Village is ideal for families, couples or young party-goers. Self-catering is an option here for those that want flexibility with their stay, since basic kitchen supplies are provided. However, with so many wonderful dining options in the area, there is no need to cook. The hotel's shop just across the street has everything one might need on a last-minute basis. There are other markets just a little further away. Panas Holiday Village is in close proximity to the city's water park, which demands a visit no matter how old you are. The hotel is also so close to many excellent themed bars and restaurants that it would be a shame to pass them up.
Located fifteen minutes from Nissi Beach, Evabelle Napa Hotel Apartments is an affordable, yet well-equipped option for budget travelers and young families. There is a swimming pool with sun terrace, a sauna, a poolside bar, a gym, restaurant and a tennis court. All rooms have a satellite TV, Wi-Fi, balcony and a fridge
Hit the beach
Ayia Napa's beaches are one of the area's main attractions, many of them winning the Blue Flag award. Whether you are an avid sun worshipper recovering from a night of partying or want to try out some of the water sports on offer here, the beaches are a popular tourist option for people of all ages.
An example of a fine beach near Ayia Napa is Macronissos Beach, located west of the resort's centre. This beach consists of a few smaller beaches, all linked together by walking paths. Macronissos Beach has comfortably soft sand, beautifully clear water and plenty of facilities, such as a snack bar and the possibility to rent water sports equipment. Many hotels are located in this area, some of which have their own private beach.
Eating and drinking out
Ayia Napa's main reputation is as a party holiday destination, making it a favourite location with the 18-30 crowd. There are a huge number of different clubs and bars in the area, offering different music, parties and events. Rock Heaven Garden is the place to go to hear old and new heavy metal, drink beer and play pool. The convenient location right on the square makes it hard to overlook.
Something completely different is the Blue Moon Bar, an extremely popular nightclub among Scandinavians, although all kinds of nationalities can be found there. It's all about entertainment in this large club—the bartenders and staff show off their skills with fire shows, cocktail-shaking and other kinds of fun stuff. They even have their own bartender school!
Things to do
If you're into water sports, you will definitely want to try the most exciting new one: flyboarding. Flyboarding lets you fly above the sea with the aid of a water-propelled device that's strapped to your legs. This extremely fun device allows you to dive into the water, fly out of it and perform stunts and tricks in the air. Safety comes first while flyboarding and you are required to wear a helmet and life jacket. Adventure-minded people should definitely try their hands on flyboarding—make sure to book ahead, though, as the number of people that can do it every day is limited.
If you're not into extreme sports, you can, of course, always enjoy the Mediterranean Sea on a boat trip. There are plenty of different boat trips on offer in the resort. Whether you're in the mood for a lazy cruise, a scuba diving trip, a crazy boat party or a dolphin-watching trip, someone will have it on offer. Most boat trips start at the Ayia Napa Harbour and go past the coastal cliffs and sea caves at Cape Greco—some continue north, some stay put and allow people to snorkel and dive. Options are plentiful.
