Platres is a village located in Cyprus and more specifically on the southern hills of Troodos. It lies about 25km north-west of Limassol and in respect to Nicosia, the capital city of Cyprus, it is at 45km south-west. Platres is separated into two different parts: Pano Platres which means Upper Platres and Kato Platres which means Lower Platres. Platres’s population is less than 300 but during the summer season it quadruples due to tourism.
Tourists who visit Platres are explorers who like to bike or walk on trails and discover their natural beauty. In Platres there is a natural trail that leads to a waterfall and lots of families choose to spend their day walking on the trail and eating a snack under the waterfall. If you are looking to escape from the hot summer heat yet you are not interested in spending a day by the beach, visiting Platres would be the right choice because even if it is still hot there and the sun is still out, the mountain winds cool the atmosphere-at night it can even get chilly.
