Pafos 3 – Pafos (Paphos) – Ag.Georgios – Lara – Fontana Amorosa – Baths of Aphrodite Cycling Route

The route starts at Polis Chrysochous and it does not take long to reach the famous fresh water spring Loutra tis Afroditis (Baths of Aphrodite), where, according to legend, the Goddess of Love and Beauty used to take her baths. Both the spring itself, as well as the adjacent botanical garden are worth visiting.

Continuing your ride through the forest of the Akamas peninsula, on your way up toward the Akamas lighthouse, you will enjoy magnificent views of the westernmost cape of Cyprus. Right before the beginning of the big uphill (17 km from the start point), in the Fontana Amoroza area, you may enjoy a swim in the beautiful crystal, clear blue waters of the famous Blue lagoon, one of the most beautiful beaches on the island.

Once you arrive at ‘Faros’, the Akamas lighthouse, and after enjoying the view, you can return to Polis Chrysochous following the same route back.

Alternatively, if you still have the strength, you can continue ascending to the ‘Smiges’ picnic area and continue through Neo Chorio village and all the way back to Polis Chrysochous.
