The Kantou Dam lies near Kantou Village in the Limassol District of Cyprus, and was built in 1956.

The river Tabakhana (Kouris) is the main supplier of water for the dam.

The Kantou Dam is a gravity dam, built to a height of 15 metres and holds 34,000 cubic metres when full.

Due to the low capacity of the dam, it has been known to overflow during heavy periods of rainfall.
