Cyprus Geography, Climate, and Weather

Cyprus, republic, and third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, located west of Syria and south of Turkey. The island has a maximum length of about 220 km (about 140 mi) from Cape Andreas in the northeast to the western extremity of the island.
Its maximum width, from Cape Gαta in the south to Cape Kormakiti in the north, is about 90 km (about 60 mi). The total area of the country is 9,251 sq km (3,572 sq mi). Nicosia is the capital and largest city.
Since 1974 the northern third of Cyprus has been occupied by Turkish troops and has formed a separate-though officially unrecognized-state called the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Cyprus has a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot and dry summers and a cool, rainy season that extends from October to March. The mean annual temperature is 21° C (69° F). The annual rainfall averages less than 500 mm (less than 20 in).
