Platres is one of the most popular resorts on the Troodos range. It is a favorite for Cypriot holiday makers who are looking for a respite from the heat of the local summers. The village is distinctive for having a perennial stream flowing through it, giving the village an unusually lush quality. The village is divided in two, Kato (lower) and Pano (upper) Platres. Kato Platres is quiet. The upper part caters to tourists, with numerous tavernas, restaurants, night spots and a Cyprus Tourism Office. The Kaledonian Falls are just upstream, and are accessible on foot or by car from the trout farm at the top of the village. Buses to the village leave from both Limassol and Nicosia.
