Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, 80 kms south of Turkey, and covers over 9,000 sq. kms. The northern sector is Turkish occupied. Mountains dominate the north coast and forests the southwest. A fertile plain extends across the centre and a southeast plateau gives way to an indented coastline with several long sandy beaches.

The climate is Mediterranean with hot, dry summers and warm, wet winters. Snow may fall on the higher land in winter. Average temperatures in Nicosia vary from 10°C in January to 29°C in July.
