Abundance of plant life
The diversity of Cyprus' flora is not immediately obvious to first-time visitors. After the explosion of flowers of endemic flora and wildflowers in the spring, summer sees the island acquire a dry appearance, with only a few hardy flowers and burdock.
The island is home to about 1,800 species and subspecies of plants, of which about 7% are native to Cyprus. Five main habitats characterize the flora profile of Cyprus: pine forests, gallery and poppies(located in the Mediterranean), rocky areas, coastal areas and wetlands. One of the main places for native plant species is Mount Troedos, where about 45 endemic species can be found. The Karpas Peninsula has 19 other endemic species that are found only in the north.
Over 40 species of orchids can be found on the island; many of them, such as the rare orchid with dots, can be seen in the lap of the Kyrenia row. The best time to visit wildflowers in Cyprus is in early spring(February to March) or late autumn(October to November), when most of the species blooms, taking advantage of the humid climate.
Cyprus is the main wintering stop on north-south migration routes and is home to two endemic bird species. The Oenanthe cypriaca are not found anywhere else in the world and many bird enthusiasts come to the island only to mark them from their list of spots. Although only about 50 species of birds reside in Cyprus throughout the year, during the main migration period in the Mediterranean, more than 200 species use the island as one of their stops along the route.
While the most famous Cypriot wild animal is still mouflon, scattering of annoying wild donkeys can be seen on the Karpas Peninsula. They are thought to be the descendants of domesticated donkeys that escaped or were abandoned in 1974. In the various forest surroundings of the island you can also see smaller animals such as foxes, rabbits, hares, hedgehogs, squirrels and fruit bats.
The dry, hot summer landscape of the island is a natural home for lizards, geckos, chameleons and snakes, of which only the Montpellier snake and the blunt-nosed viper are poisonous. In particular, lizards and geckos, sunbathing on rocks, ruins and concrete walls appear everywhere. Keep your eyes peeled to notice the particularly plain, gray-green stripes of the Troödos lizard and the brown-yellow skin.
Cyprus' warm, clear waters are home to more than 260 different species of fish, and the bays and underwater reefs along its shores are full of marine life such as corals, mushrooms, mussels and sea anemones, making it a paradise for scuba diving and snorkeling. The schools of grouper, bat, tuna, barracuda, rays and parrot are usually seen by divers here, while the seas around the island are also home to sea eels, octopuses and green turtles.
Where to spend time in Cyprus - holidays and entertainment

Cyprus' unique climate
It is difficult to find another place where it would almost always be sunny without a lot of heat, rain and high humidity. The island of Cyprus, along with the climate of New Zealand, is considered the healthiest and most temperate in the world. This is most likely the reason why the life expectancy of the population of Cyprus is higher than, for example, in England or the United States. There are practically no serious infectious diseases, as climatic and natural conditions contribute to the maintenance of good human immunity: sea air, saturated with iodine and clean air in the mountains, filled with the aroma of flowering herbs, and mostly sunny days(330 -340 sunny days of the year!) very few temperature fluctuations throughout the year. as a rule, not lower than +10-15°C even in winter, and easy tolerance in summer due to low humidity. The Government of the Republic of Cyprus pays attention to the ecology of the island - it has unusually clean sea and clean air.
