Baths of Aphrodite

The Baths of Aphrodite (known as Loutra in Greek) after Latsi, is where legend has it Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty took her bath together with her lover Adonis.

Stop at the tourist pavilion and admire the spectacular view of the bay, considered one of the best views in Cyprus, before heading up along the pretty nature trail that takes you inland past a botanical garden and on to the spot where the goddess supposedly took her beauty bath. It consists of a grotto in the mountainside carved out by the dripping flow of a fresh water spring that collects in a pool and shaded by a fig tree whose branches spread out over the water. It is said to provide eternal youth to whoever bathes in the pool, although nowadays bathing is prohibited.

This very romantic spot is available for weddings organised by the Polis Municipality.
