The 'Baths of Aphrodite' is an area in the Akamas betweeen Polis and Cape Arnaouti which attracts many visitors.The Goddess of Love used to take her bath in a cool pond near Polis. The place is known as 'Baths of Aphrodite' and provides a magnificent view of the Bay of Polis.

The cave is said to be where the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite used to bathe. According to mythology, this is where Aphrodite met her lover, the handsome Adonis, when he stopped off for a drink while hunting, to quench his thirst.

It is said that if you bathe in the water you will be given eternal youth or you will fall for the next person you see, but unfortunately bathing is not permitted.
