Adonis Baths Waterfalls, located approximately 2 kilometers from Kili village in the Paphos district, are renowned for their exceptional beauty and secluded surroundings. To access the baths, one can take either the Tala or Akoursos road, both about 12 kilometers away from Paphos. Travelers using bicycles or motorcycles may find it more convenient to take the Tala Road.

The waterfall was formed by the water from the surrounding ravines, which over time eroded the soil, creating a small lake. During the summer, many people are drawn to such places with cool water to relax and refresh themselves. Some adventurous individuals even climb the rock with ropes and jump into the lake, while others prefer to dive from a lower height.

Swimming in the baths, beneath the waterfall, is believed to have youth-preserving effects for women and to strengthen men. Adjacent to the baths, a statue of Adonis and Aphrodite can be found. A message accompanying the statue states that infertile women who wish to conceive should touch Adonis’s appendage for a chance at having many children thereafter.

According to Greek mythology, Adonis and Aphrodite had numerous offspring at this location, and it is believed that the people of Paphos are descended from these two lovers. Adonis Baths was their preferred place to spend time together and was also where Adonis tragically met his demise. He was fatally wounded by a man disguised as a wild boar and returned to the baths, where he died in the arms of Aphrodite. Overwhelmed by grief, Aphrodite pleaded for him to be sent back every six months.

Adonis Baths Waterfalls hold both historical and mythological significance, making them a popular destination for visitors seeking natural beauty and cultural exploration.

Visiting this place is truly a delightful experience, but please note that there is an admission fee. Additionally, it is important to be well-informed about the directions and operating hours of the theme park.

Walking around the park is boring, but the waterfall itself is very beautiful, you can sit in front of it and enjoy the view. We visited in February when there were few people there, which was a plus. Be prepared that the road to the waterfall is terrible, so rent a buggy or a powerful car.

Beautiful place, great views

The road to the waterfalls is adventurous but offers a great view. The waterfalls themselves are worth visiting. The second waterfall requires good shoes and it is easy to get wet shoes.
The 10€ entrance fee is enourmous for Cyprus, where we never paid more than 5€. The statues are mediocre but add to the athmosphere.

Miejsce trudno dostępne dla zwykłego turysty. Trzeba mieć porządne terenowe auto albo sporo zdrowia i sił aby tam dotrzeć.

We went there in February the waterfalls were there but the other part of the route "the gorges of Adonis" was not accessible and led nowhere

While the journey from Paphos may be rocky and taxing on the car, the €10 entry fee is a small price to pay for such an unforgettable experience. It is really slippery so have to be careful and also can get really crowded so make sure to reahc early! Theres a café that offers a welcome respite with its warm drinks, and the walk up the gorge provides an opportunity to further explore the natural wonders of the area, although sturdy footwear and a willingness to wade through water are recommended for the path ahead. The local history museum provides insight into the area's rich heritage, displaying intriguing artifacts for visitors to admire.

Nice place, but the road is not good for all cars. We let our car behind and walked the last 2-3 km. Ticket price is 10 euro in 2024
