Overview

Explore Aphrodite's Playground


This 13-km long walk is in Akamas, a pristine, rich in bio-diversity area of Cyprus.

Walkers enjoy stunning views of the west and the north coast. From Neo Chorio village we walk to Smiyies, the meeting point of Aphrodite and Adonis, and to 'Moutti tis Sotiras' peak. We usually finish our walk at Baths of Aphrodite cave.

Explore the Playground of the Goddess of Beauty and Love

This 13-km long walk is in a pristine, almost untouched by man, rich in biodiversity area of Cyprus. We start walking in Neo Chorio village and initially go through farmland west to the Smiyies picnic area. From there the route goes north and ascends to the peak known as 'Moutti tis Sotiras' from where one enjoys unobstructed views of the north coast from Cape Arnaouti, the tip of Akamas, towards the north-west all the way to Pomos in the northeast. After a pause for a picnic and for enjoying the majestic view we walk to Baths of Aphrodite cave on the Aphrodite trail (the last stretch is on the coastal dirt road, near the cliff).

We can make other arrangements for shorter walks in the area if travelers prefer (e.g. do the 7-km Aphrodite trail or even a one-way coastal walk with boat transportation - for a fee - in the opposite way).
