Baths of Aphrodite
Welcome to the Baths of Aphrodite, a hidden gem in Akamas National Forest Park.
Don’t be fooled by its simplicity; this cove is worth visiting, especially if you’re into hiking!
As I did from Paphos, get there early in the morning and enjoy the scenic trek up the hill with breathtaking views of the sea and fresh Cypriot breeze.
According to legend, Aphrodite herself used to come here to bathe.
And who knows, if you’re lucky, you might feel her presence as you dip in the crystal clear pool where she met Adonis, her lover, according to Greek mythology.
And when you’re ready to refuel, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the cozy cafe across the way, where you can soak up stunning coastal views while enjoying a refreshing drink.
You can book a tour to Akamas and the Blue Lagoon, including a stop at Aphrodite’s Baths right here.
It’s a top pick for locals and visitors alike!
According to Greek mythology, not only did the goddess of love, Aphrodite, come here to bathe, but she also met and fell in love with her lover Adonis in these waters.
It’s a magical place indeed!
Aphrodite’s Bath is on the beautiful eastern side of the Akamas Peninsula in the Paphos district. You must go and explore this area!
Cyprus is a fantastic island that holds special significance in Greek mythology. According to ancient Greek legend, the goddess of love, Aphrodite, was born in Cyprus (On Aphrodite’s Rock, if to be more specific).
In addition, the island’s unparalleled beauty is said to have made it a favorite playground of the gods! And honestly – who can blame them?
