Undertook a good trek to get there and was a little disappointed especially as one of the locals informed us that it was a site made up just for the tourists Not sure how true this sentiment was but, when in Paphos it would be a shame not to see the sight.

Place is for attracting tourists. Legends say that Aphrodite emerged here from the sea. Just for stop and quick photo, nothing more.

This is a charming part of Cyprus the beach and waters around the rock are mythical its got a feel to it only explained if you have experienced it. You must make the effort and go down to the beach there and not as some do just take photograph's from the top. Spend a little time here this is the... More

We decided this beach to by our "goodbye" to Cyprus after some years and we didn't regret it. At first I really like the story of Aphrodite foam-arisen in this beach (in one of the myth's versions). It is interesting to realize that this beach is foamy most of the times which of course makes sense and justifies the myth.... More

A beautiful location. The sea is crystal clear. It is easy to park with a dedicated under road tunnel for ease of access. There is also somewhere is grab a drink in the carpark. We would recommend afterwards driving up the road slightly where there are view points to stop and take photos.

We visited Aphrodite's rock as part of an excursion. It's was good to understand the meaning behind it and is well worth a visit. It's set on a nice beach... but the beach is stoney so be warned.

Absolutely beautiful, a hidden gem. Found the journey down a little scary with small children but we'll worth it. Love the view from the top, and the ice cream turning space is a hidden gem without the hordes of people. A must - see.

It is a rock, what more can you say? We were on a coach trip and it stopped a short distance off the rock. I would definately hire a car next time and explore more. The sea looked lovely, so clear and clean.

I did enjoy this place. Good for wildlife. However I would recommend the baths of Adonis more. But only one company seems to go there. Elvis jeep safaris. You can get a good swim in there.
