Caledonia waterfalls, is one of the highest waterfalls in Cyprus and it is located in the village of  Platres . The water falls from a height of 12 meters and can be reached via a walking path.

Caledonia waterfall is surrounded by a forest in a very beautiful area with breathtaking views. The trail is 3km long and can last up to 2 hours. It can also be divided into two parts, the first one which is the higher one that leads to the waterfalls and the second one which leads from the waterfall to Platres.

The trail is considered not that difficult but this may vary because of the changes in gradient and the climate during the time of the visit. It is recommend to use decent shoes for the trail. Adults and children can complete the trail without any problems but it is not suitable for very young children. For people who do not have very good fitness levels they can skip the long nature walk path, as there is an easy access (by food) which leads straight to the main waterfall. That shortcut is about 20 minutes walk, from Aedonion road by the trout farm in Pano Platres.

While walking on the nature trail you can see many species of the local flora and various plants. It is a magical trail of nature where you can chill and enjoy the natural sound of the wind on the tree leaves as well as the magnificent bird singing. Moreover, it is worth mentioning that the name of Caledonia Falls originates from the swallow birds who sing during the spring and summer period.
