There is an abundance of tourist attractions open in October and we have full lists throughout our site, such as water sports, beach’s, boat trips, historic sites. However, it isn’t always easy to know what to do when it is raining in Cyprus. We would suggest a day bowling in Paralimni, the cinema in Larnaca, the history museum in Nicosia and there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars open from morning to night. The aquarium is part inside, part outdoors but again a different day out and all of our holiday rental villas and apartments have indoor entertainment.
