February in Cyprus is usually the coldest month of the year, so don't expect any mercy from the weather.

For example, it is in February that the ski season often begins, with stable sub-zero temperatures in the mountains at night. Along the coast, the temperature doesn't drop below zero, but it can't be called comfortable either.

However, the surroundings are a feast for the eyes. The island starts turning green rapidly after the December and January rains, and in the mountains, you can see a steady snow cover. By the way, it's still possible to catch a glimpse of flamingos in Cyprus in February!

To enjoy these beauties, don't forget to dress warmly, especially if you plan to go up to Troodos. Waterproof clothing will come in handy along the coast.
