Baths of Aphrodite, Latchi
Categories: Geologic Formations, Hiking Trails, Nature & Parks, Outdoor Activities
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.

If you travelled out of your way just to find the baths, then I think you would be disappointed. It's just a small pond. But the whole surrounding area is beautfiul, with a well stocked gift shop, a g... read more »

The general area is beautiful but the baths are a relatively pointless thing to go and see. It's kind of dirty, brown water... a pond with a small waterfall. Not worth the effort, but definitely worth going to this post of the coast as the rest of the location is idyllic.
A pleasant option for a scenic walk. The actual baths are pretty, but not worth a great deal of effort to get to. If you find yourself in the area though, I would definitely recommend taking a quick look. The walking routes around this area, which also incorporate the baths, are very pretty and offer great views over the bay towards Polis.
I'd say the walk up is much better than the bath itself (you can't swim in it). We come here every time we visit (have been coming for 15 or so years now), and it's fair to say that the beauty of it all has deteriorated. I found it entirely disrespectful to find cigarette butts and litter in the water and around the rocks. The baths themselves are unremarkable - just a small pool of water with a few overhanging branches. As you're walking to and from them, though, the views are beautiful. Definitely worth exploring the area around here.
Whilst the bath itself is hugely disappointing, the trails that snake away up into the hills of the park and wind down towards the sea are breathtaking. Discovering the ancient solidarity oak tree of Greek folk law proved quite spiritual.
Scenery was beautiful but there wasn't much to see at the baths themselves.
