Want to add your FAQ?

January in Cyprus is a full-fledged winter month when the air temperature does not allow you to walk in just a T-shirt even during the day.

A sweatshirt has already become a necessary clothing item throughout the day, and after sunset, the air temperature drops so much that you will need to wear a jacket. However, if there are no clouds during the day and the sun is shining, you can walk in just a T-shirt for some time. Rain is quite frequent in January, so waterproof clothing will also come in handy.
