The Aphrodite trail is one of the most beautiful walks on the Akamas Peninsula and has stunning views over the cliffs towards the blue lagoon. The walk starts from the Baths of Aphrodite where there is a cafe/restaurant nearby and also a stall selling cold drinks and snacks.
This whole area of Cyprus has a very strong connection with the legend of Aphrodite, the daughter of Zeus, and her lover Adonis. The trail takes you round the North coast of the peninsula, up over the hills and down through the trees and tracks. The walk is fairly difficult because of the climb and descent and the surface is often very rocky and also can be slippery.
The beautiful trail is surrounded by the sea, various shrubs, flowers and trees including rock cyclamen, thyme, and anemones. It’s an absolutely stunning sight that shouldn’t be missed.
