The Hantara Waterfall is located a few minutes north of the village of Fini, amid a beautiful landscape flooded with greenery that is sure to charm anyone who visits.

The water falls from a height of approximately 8 meters, gushing along rough, volcanic rocks. It forms small lakes along its course, like little pools on different levels, and many people enjoy swimming in the cold, crystal waters, especially during the summer.

Legend has it that the goddess Aphrodite once bathed in this magnificent waterfall.

According to the legend, a storm broke out when the goddess was bathing, and the Diarizos river carried her to its estuary, in the village of Kouklia in Paphos, where the ancient temple was built in her honor.
