The waterfalls are reached by travelling along the Limassol to Platres road. Just before you reach Platres Village, you will find a village called Phini Village, also known as Foini Village, on your left hand side. A little further along the main road, on your right hand side, you will find a road which leads to the waterfalls. The road is just under 2 kilometres to the waterfalls, where visitors will find a free car park within a short walk to the waterfalls.

The Chantara Waterfalls are nearly 9 metres high and the top is reached by a path next to the stream. The waterfalls is a beautiful nature spot, with the waterfalls flowing all year long. The waterfalls are more dynamic in the winter due to the sometimes heavy rainfall in the Troodos Mountains areas.

There are no facilities for visitors and a bottle of drinking water is highly recommended, along with sturdy walking shoes.

The summer months have in recent years been very dry, due to a severe lack of rainfall, and this leads to forest fires. The Cyprus Forest Fire Service regularly has a vehicle stationed by the waterfalls as a precautionary safety measure for visitors.
