28th October is a National Greek Holiday in Cyprus so there’s no work. Last year I took a little daytrip to Larnaca that day. I have to say end of October is a beautiful time to be in Cyprus. I can now say that you should most definitely visit Cyprus in October. The weather gets better in October as the intense summer heat starts to settle so it’s not as hot but you can still go swimming. Also beginning of November is a beautiful time in Cyprus too. I think the cut off line would be mid November when the weather starts changing and our Autumn season begins.
