The Adonis Baths Waterfalls is one of prettiest locations in Cyprus. Its said by the locals that swimming in the water has positive effects on both men and women. There are even Statues of Adonis and Aphrodite at this location due to its connection to the old tale.

Adonis bath is where Adonis met his end. Its location on the island makes it a very peaceful peace. Traveling is very easy from Paphos.

The Adonis baths and waterfalls said to be the place where Adonis used to meet and bathe with Aphrodite, spending much of their time together here as it was their favorite place. It was also here that many of their children were supposedly born.

However, it was also the place where Adonis died in the arms of his lover Aphrodite after a man disguised as a wild boar fatally wounded him in battle.

Outside of the baths, there is a sign beside the statues of the lovers, which says

'Ladies infertile who wish to become pregnant touch Adonis's appendage and have many children thereafter.'

The baths lie below a waterfall with high cliffs on either side. Swimming in the Adonis baths is said to make women look younger and more beautiful, and men stronger.
