The walk was worth it. There is a little creek halfway the walk that is gorgious, especially in contrast with the dry landscape around it. A bit further along the route you'll also find a nice gully. The peninsula is a bit barren in the...More

An excellent way to see the beautiful Akamas coastline and mountains. Certainly need plenty of water and a big hat. Watch out for the passing 4x4s that kick up a dust an can be a real pain.

Beautiful views and easy trail to follow. We did the Adonis + Afrodite hikes together combined. Took about 3 hours for the whole trip at a comfortable pace.

This is a great walk, the round trip takes around 3 hours. The views from the top and on the way back down are spectacular.

Left Latchi and headed for Aphrodite's bath, after a walk down the steps to view and take some pics we headed back to the 4x4 to follow the dirt track road towards the Blue Lagoon. Very soon the track went from smooth-ish to rough terrain...More

If there are showers in the moring, it's even a better excuse to do it then :) Assuming it's a typical summer day - the sooner the better. In my opinion make sure you are done no later than 10 AM.
