Joining an Aphrodite Baths tour is one of the easiest things to do in Paphos.

If you drive, you can visit the Aphrodite baths on your own, as they are only a few kilometers outside Paphos.

Alternatively, you can get there by bus, but that’s something I don’t recommend. I did it, so that you don’t have to. Now let’s see some of the best tours you can choose to spend a pleasurable day at these baths.

Located in the Akamas Peninsula, near the village of Latchi, Aphrodite’s Baths are a fascinating and historically significant site in Cyprus.

What’s there at the Baths of Aphrodite?

The Aphrodite Baths are nothing but a small pool in a natural grotto, surrounded by lush vegetation and rocks.

The value of this UNESCO Heritage site lays in the beauty and the serenity of this park with wild flora and natural walking paths.

As the mythical birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, this natural wonder is a popular destination for tourists seeking beauty, relaxation, and a touch of ancient mythology.

Swimming in the baths of Aphrodite is forbidden. People come here to relax, admire the natural scenery and take photos. For swimming and snorkeling, you can go to the beach nearby.

As you drive from Coral Bay to Aphrodite Baths, the sea scenery is truly impressive. I’ve been on a bus, so I couldn’t stop for photos, but I surely was impressed with the view.

If you’re visiting Paphos and wish to explore the baths of Aphrodite, here’s a comprehensive guide to help you plan your journey.

How to Get from Paphos To Aphrodite Baths

  • By Car: The most convenient way to reach Aphrodite’s Baths is by renting a car in Paphos. The drive takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour, depending on traffic and road conditions. Take the B7 road towards the Akamas Peninsula, and follow signs for Aphrodite’s Baths.

 

  • By Bus: While public transportation options are limited, you can still take a bus from Paphos to Latchi, a nearby village. From Latchi, you can either hike or take a short taxi ride to Aphrodite’s Baths. Buses operate less frequently, so be sure to check the schedule in advance.

Exploring Aphrodite’s Baths:

  1. Entry Fee: There’s no entrance fee to the natural park
  2. Walking Trails: Once you arrive, you’ll find well-marked walking trails that lead you to the actual baths. The surrounding landscape is stunning, featuring lush greenery, rocky terrain, and breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea.
  3. The Baths: The baths themselves consist of a natural grotto where water gathers in a pool. According to legend, this is where Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, used to bathe. Take some time to admire the serene surroundings and the crystal-clear water. Swimming isn’t allowed. The tiny pool isn’t too enticing, anyway, as it has a rather peculiar smell.

Tips for a Memorable Visit:

  1. Comfortable Shoes: Wear sturdy footwear suitable for walking on uneven terrain, as the trails leading to the baths can be rocky.
  2. Hydration and Snacks: Carry plenty of water to stay hydrated, especially during the warmer months. Pack some light snacks for energy.
  3. Sun Protection: Cyprus has a Mediterranean climate, so sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses are essential to protect yourself from the sun.
  4. Camera: Don’t forget your camera or smartphone to capture the breathtaking views and memories of your visit.
