Fontana Amoroza is said to bubble with the goddess Aphrodite's fabled love potion. Legend has it that Aphrodite brought her many lovers here, away from the prying eyes of mortals and for the privacy the bay had to offer. Another legend says that those that consume water from the well there will fall in love again.
Coming to more recent times however, the bay is a popular snorkeling paradise with both locals and foreigners alike. Terracotta pots and pottery fragments litter the seabed in the area and more fish than in most locations of the Akamas coastline can be spotted here. It is often on the routes for boat tours from nearby Latchi Harbour
