Cyprus among hottest winter sun destinations
Cyprus has been included in Thomas Cook’s “Top 6 Hottest Destinations in November”, together with Turkey, Fuerteventura, Tunisia, Tenerife and Florida.
The article by Sadie Geoghegan notes that though the summer months may be slipping away, there’s plenty of opportunity to get your fix of winter sun in November.
The entry on Cyprus notes that November sees average highs of 22°C. And it adds:
“Cyprus boasts a whopping 340 days of sunshine a year and offers a wealth of stunning beaches and ancient history. Temperatures in November regularly creep up to the mid 20s, making it the perfect conditions for a round of golf or a race around the Paphos Karting Centre. For a taste of Cyprus’ history, you can visit Aphrodite’s Rock, explore the ancient city of Amathus or navigate the underground Tombs of the Kings in Paphos, which date back to the 4th century BC.”
The report from the British tour giant will cheer the local tourism industry as it looks to extend its season.
Tourism accounts for more than 10% of GDP. Cyprus expects to welcome more than two million tourists this year.
