Averages for Protaras in October
Things in Protaras start to slow down during October as restaurateurs and hotel owners prepare for the off season and the diminishing tourist trade.
However, visitors can still find plenty to do this time of year as temperatures are warm and mild and precipitation is minimal. The average temperature for the month of October is set at around 72 degrees Fahrenheit or 22 degrees Celsius.
The low temperature averages around 61 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) and generally runs around 81 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius) as a high during the day.
The Mediterranean Sea provides waters that stay at around 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius) during the month. Again, precipitation is moderately low, or around 19 mm for the month of October. The sun shines, on average, 8.8 hours per day.
Several events take place during October. On October 1, Cypriots celebrate Cyprus Independence Day – a day marked by school festivals and a large military parade that makes its way down the streets of the capital of Nicosia.
Greek National Day falls later in the month, otherwise known as Ohi Day. The day is observed to commemorate Greek Prime Minister Ioannia Metaxas’ refusal to allow Axis forces in World War II to occupy Greek strongholds. Greek flags, during that day, decorate the outsides of buildings and homes.October also marks the White Rock Triathlon, which is held at Governor’s Beach in nearby Limassol. Again, in Protaras itself, tourists can find plenty to do, what with such water-related activities as kayaking, parasailing, jet-skiing, wind surfing, and motor boating to keep them occupied.
For walkers or hikers, two nature trails can be accessed in Protaras. One trail, approximately 8 ½ K long, begins at the Profitis Elias Chapel and leads hikers and walkers along a path that offers stunning views of Protaras before eventually concluding along the coastal area that makes up Konnos Beach. The other trail, much shorter, runs in a loop and begins and ends at the Agioi Anargyroi Chapel.
