When to Visit

Choosing when to visit Libya largely comes down to personal preference, as each season has its own charm. The climate is generally Mediterranean along the coast, turning desert-like as you move inland.

Autumn and spring are ideal for travellers seeking mild temperatures, particularly between September and November or March and May. These periods are great for exploring Libyan cities without the intense heat of summer months.

However, for adventurous souls who wish to experience the vast Sahara in its full glory, the cool winter months from December to February are perfect. Opt for an exhilarating desert safari followed by mesmerising nights under the starlit sky.
