If you’re going by car, it’d better be a pretty capable 4×4, and you’d better be pretty capable driving it. Follow the coast road from Latsi to the Baths of Aphrodite, and then continue along the unmade track past the campsite signed ‘Akamas’. This road is not for the faint-hearted. The road is signed ‘Dangerous Road’ – and they mean it.
The alternative route by car is to follow the road from Latsi up to the village of Neo Chorio, and then continue towards Pegeia. This starts out as a tarmac road, becoming a concrete road and then an unmade road. After 2-3km you come to a junction – turn right signed to Fontana Amorosa. The road winds up and over the mountain with some great views but treat the road with great care. After a further 6km you come to another junction – again go right towards Fontana Amorosa. The road drops down quite steeply in places – a 4×4 is pretty much essential. At Fontana Amorosa turn right and follow the coast tracks to Blue Lagoon.
The better and more fun option is to hire a boat from Latsi. Even with a relatively low powered boat getting to Blue Lagoon from Latsi takes under 30 minutes.
