Description

Adonis Baths are located near Koili village at Paphos district. If you believe the legends, the Adonis Baths played an important role in Greek mythology – it was here that lovers Adonis and Aphrodite spent much of their time, conceived many of their children and ultimately, where a wounded Adonis died in the arms of Aphrodite. Today, the romantic spot is a popular choice for visitors to Cyprus and swimming in the natural pools is said to bring virility and long-lasting youth, while touching the waterfront statue of Adonis and Aphrodite is alleged to bring fertility. Even if you don’t believe the myths, the Adonis Baths are a great spot for refreshing, with the emerald green lagoon set beneath a tumbling waterfall and hemmed in by rocky cliffs and wild greenery. Please note that Adonis Baths are 30 min. drive from Paphos.
