Beaufort wind scale and how it affects the conditions at Protaras and Agia Napa beaches – most common conditions:
2 beaufort: Light breeze, wind felt on skin; pleasant to swim with offshore or onshore winds. Small waves with onshore winds, calm seas with offshore winds.
3 beaufort: Stronger breeze, leaves moving, flags extended; pleasant to swim with offshore winds (beware of light sea current taking you away from the shore), hard to swim with onshore winds due to waves but fun to ride!
4 beaufort: Windy, paper starts flying; comfortable to swim with offshore winds near the shore (beware of sea current taking you offshore), white caps seen at a distance of 100m; with onshore winds strong and frequent waves covering the whole body, swimming recommended only for a short time and for experienced swimmers.
5 beaufort: Very windy (by Cyprus standards!) sand may be raised and feel uncomfortable to the body and eyes. With offshore wind, manageable to swim but beware of currents. Enjoy the view with onshore wind!
