Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Cyprus is a top tourist holiday destination with plenty activities in March. Hiking trails with spring flowers and rare orchids in all areas. There is almost 8 hours of warm sunshine each day in March. Average maximum temperature reaches about 19C-20C on the plains and 10C on the mountain ranges. If there is still snow you can ski in the morning and swim in the afternoon...and go orienteering in between! ☺
