Baths of Aphrodite, Latchi

2.8
#1 of 9 in Trails in Cyprus
Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, was rumored to have taken baths at Baths of Aphrodite, a crystal-clear pond nestled in a subtropical oasis. When Adonis saw her one day by accident, he immediately fell in love; and the feelings were mutual. Adorning the final point of a small nature trail in Akamas National Park, the baths serve as a famous photography spot and a cool shaded resting area.

  • The baths themselves are somewhat disappointing. It’s just a tiny trickle of water falling into a pool of water at the base of a small cave. But do not be put off. The surrounding scenery and walks al...  more »
  • So, the bathroom is now not just the hammer. However, the path / trail (approx. 8 KM) is very nice and recommended!

  • Stunning place in the area of Paphos, the way there is amazing, small and beautiful villages along the road, great restaurants and super nice people. We start by walk to the Baths and continue walking up to the small mountain above it, half an hour or a hour walk to the top and then you can see amazing view of all the bay.. It's hard to describe it in words. Go visit there and then you will understand.
  • After going to the baths carry on walking and do the round trip. Could be better signed. Use Google maps to guide you. We went too early. Spring flowers would have made it even better. The area though is smothered in wild cyclamen
  • The botanical gardens are nice but the best part was the hike. It starts from a back gate of the gardens and it climbs for 2.5 km up to a water source (a pipe and not a spring). We took the same way down, to avoid the jeeps and baggies.
  • The natural grotto of the Baths of Aphrodite, and its botanical garden, can be found past the fishing harbour of Latsi, and towards the tip of the Akamas Peninsula. Shaded by an old fig tree, amidst lush greenery, legend tells that the Ancient Greek Goddess Aphrodite used to bathe in the waters. According to Greek mythology, Aphrodite met her lover Adonis at this beautiful spot when he stopped for a drink whilst hunting, and fell in love with her the moment when he drank the water.
  • Nice place to visit. Great sea view. Best at winter. At the viewpoint there's a restaurant - do not recommend unless it's for a drink or a snack. Terrible food
