Weather in Northern Cyprus in February

Roughly speaking, the weather in February is far from resembling a summer resort during its peak season. However, this winter month offers something else in Northern Cyprus: spring is approaching, and the rains that fell in December and January have transformed the almost lifeless land of summer into a blooming oasis of green.

To enjoy this spectacle without freezing, it is important to choose the right wardrobe: clothing should not only be warm but also windproof, as the coastal areas can experience quite strong winds. During the day, when the sun is out and the wind is calm, it can be quite warm, so it is better to opt for layered clothing.

Precipitation is also to be expected, so having waterproof clothing is recommended. Ideally, a warm middle layer and a waterproof outer layer that can be easily removed.
