It is built over the ancient city "Phoenix", the port which was a port for the ancient city "Anopoli". The port of Bath is very safe, as the enclosed bay and an island in this entry, create a natural harbor where boats can hang out even in bad weather. The village is so named because of the baths found in the area, which are created by the Romans, in their wake, and even today many parts of bodies are preserved in very good condition.

The Bathroom has two beaches. A small beach in front of the village and a larger one east of the village, called "Keramos", which is ideal when the south wind blows in the area. Both these beaches are pebble. The waters are turquoise and crystal clear, and almost always calm. Both beaches are organized with umbrellas and sunbeds.
