Less than an hour’s drive from Paphos on the northern coast of the Island lies the unspoilt rural area of “Polis tis Chrysochous” with its relaxed, agricultural town of Polis . Over the years it has yielded numerous ancient relics. Bordering the Akamas Peninsula Nature Reserve, with its sandy bays, wildlife, and geology, this area is ideal for ramblers, water-sport enthusiasts, or those wishing to relax in a totally tranquil environment. The Baths of Aphrodite, a legendary beauty spot, are just along the coast from Latchi. According to myth, Aphrodite would take her beauty baths in the pool of this natural grotto, which is shaded by a fig tree, and has a continuous run of water from the overhead rocks.
