Tourists will see a significant decline in the clemency of the weather during November. However, it is by no means cold and it is actually a great time to visit Ayia Napa if you want to avoid the peak season. The average low temperature is 12°C, but the average high temperature during the daytime is still comfortably warm at 22°C. It's clear that summer's over though. Both temperatures are much lower than they were in October—four and five degrees lower respectively—and they continue to decrease in the course of the month. November 1 is the warmest day of the month, with a nighttime low of 15°C and a daytime high of 25°C. On November 30, the night is chilly at 11°C, but the afternoon still pleasant at a max of 20°C. The overall average daily temperature in November is 17°C, which makes it the fifth-coldest month of the year in the resort, together with April. The average sea temperature is still relatively warm at 23°C and it is commonplace to see people swimming and sunbathing even during this month.
The amount of sunshine decreases as well in the course of November. Now, there are only 9 hours of sunshine per day left, a huge difference with the 14 hours in June and July. This drop in daily sunshine is caused by the shortening of the days and the increase in cloud cover.

November 1, the longest day of the month, has 10.44 daylight hours. November 30 is the shortest day with 9.58 hours of daylight.
The clouds that move in bring with them more rainfall. November's total amount of rainfall is 43mm, more than double the amount of precipitation in October.

Things to do
Looking for a thrill? Then bungee jumping will provide the excitement you're after. Nissi Beach is the location of a world-renowned bungee jumping club: Bungee Downunder. This is where you can jump off a huge crane with an elastic cord strapped around your feet. The jump platform overlooks the gorgeous blue water of the Mediterranean Sea and the white sands of the beach below. The experience also includes music and a barbecue.
Another extreme attraction is the Ayia Napa SlingShot. This is not for the faint-hearted as it involves your being shot 90 metres into the sky with speeds up to 160 km/h. Once you're at the top, you'll feel weightless for a second and you'll be able to see the entire town of Ayia Napa and beyond, before you fall back down toward the ground. This amazing thrilling attraction also has its bar where you can grow some courage before you do it.
Not as thrilling, but definitely scary, is the Nightmare – Horror Maze. Don't be fooled though; this pitch-black horror maze will scare even the bravest of visitors. From the moment you enter until the second you step out, your senses will be heightened and your adrenaline will be rushing at unprecedented speeds—that is if you make it to the end. Thousands of people have turned back because it simply was too scary. Be careful, though, for this is not an attraction that's suitable for pregnant women and people with heart problems.
