Cyprus in March is often an early spring break for lovers of the outdoors. It’s the ideal time – just before Easter and the unofficial start of the tourist season – when a Paphos or Larnaca airport taxi will be booked to take passengers on all types of day trips around Cyprus. While some love to visit historic sites, others find the gentle warm air perfect for exploring the terrain or jogging around the coastline.
Temperatures start to hit a pleasantly warm 19°-20°C. It’s even a comfortable 10°C high up in the Troodos mountains where fresh green grass spreads across the slopes. Elsewhere, almond and jasmine trees are blossoming and the scent of fruit trees fills the air. As the month progresses, daytime temperature can climb to around 23°C. Enticing weather for enthusiastic anglers to try their hand at sea fishing or even catching octopus in Larnaca or Limassol.
Cyprus taxi transfers for sightseeing in Limassol or Paphos
Catching octopus, i.e. calamari is definitely a little different from most visitors who head for a spot of sightseeing in Limassol. Cyprus taxi transfers tend to be asked to drive to The Kourion – also known as Curium Theatre – one of the most spectacular archaeological sites on the entire island. The amphitheatre, which seats 3,500, was built in the 2nd century and since 1966, nearly 1,600 years after earthquakes caused the theatre to be abandoned, once again started to stage classical Greek tragedy.
March in Paphos is no Greek drama for visitors despite a few showers appearing over this westerly exposed edge of the island. With the mercury at around 23°C, it’s actually one of the most comfortable months for walking, cycling and hiking around Paphos. There are several popular hiking routes – mostly related to the locations of the mythic Greek gods – such as the trails of Aphrodite, Adonis or Artemis.
Protaras or Larnaca Trails – your Larnaca airport taxi driver knows how to find them
On the eastern side of Cyprus there’s more hiking and sightseeing in Protaras. Once again, March can often find a taxi booking for visitors who intend to explore Greco National Park, one of the island’s most breathtaking nature reserves with crystal clear waters and protected pine forest trails. Protaras is also a popular area, with its 500 metre stretch of Blue Flag beaches, known as Fig Tree Bay – and its one remaining fig tree.
Larnaca too offers an inspiring number of nature trails. Two of the most popular trails are the Prophet Elias and the Cave of Athashia. The Prophet Elias, which starts at the Kionia camping site near Vavatsinia or from the Machairas Monastery, is 7 km long and takes around three hours to complete on foot. Cave of Athashia is only 2kms in length and a shorter hike of around an hour, starting at Vavatsinia, Konia Forest.
Your Larnaca airport taxi driver is sure to know exactly how to navigate safely through the mountainous terrain to reach the start of the trails!
