The Kremmioti Waterfall is located in the village of Kritou Terra in the Paphos district. According to the Kritou Terra Council, the Kremmioti Waterfall is situated towards the northeast part of the community, which is where the Kremmioti River is located. The water flows all year round and hits on the rocks creating a wonderful green carpet. The village of Kritou Terra is one of the most popular destinations on the island, and this is due to the fact that the nature path has become accessible, and leads to a majestic location made by nature and from the water that flows from the Kremmioti River. The waterfall is located at an altitude of 570 metres. The large waterfall is revealed after a two-hour hike in a secluded nature trail, which has been restructured. The path goes through rich and wild vegetation made up of bushes, trees and flowers some of which can only be found in this area.
A resident of the village who was the owner of fields in the area during 1930, wanted to use the water from one of the four watermills which the waterfall moved, in order to water his fields.
Therefore he carved the rock which forms the cave leading to the idyllic location. The hole was much larger but after many years stalactites and stalagmites were created which made it difficult for anyone to get though.
The waterfall is located on the east side of the village of Kritou Terra and there are signs leading there. You should take towels and cases for your phones and cameras as it is sure that you will get wet.
