* NOTE: All the tributes of All About Limassol (as the Official Guide of Limassol) aim to ONLY highlight the special aspects of this wonderful city, so that everyone can be aware of the exceptional options they offer. Under no circumstances do they have any promotional or nominal value, and they do not serve the interests of Companies, Municipalities, Organizations or Individuals.

One of the most beautiful waterfalls of Cyprus is located in the Limassol mountains, near the Mesa Potamos picnic area and the Timios Prodromos Monastery.

The waterfall of Mesa Potamos is formed at an altitude of 900 meters, and the water falls from a height of 7 meters. The water from the river springs from almost twice that altitude, from within the Troodos forest, and crosses through Platres to reach this point.

The flow of the river creates a beautiful setting in Arkolahania, where the waterfall is located. Plane trees, oak trees and pine trees create a cornucopia of colors and aromas.

Visitors can take the short route that begins from the picnic area, that follows a steep incline in some parts. The end result, however, is worth it.
