Park in café car park on left of road and walk through tunnel to beach. Beach very stony, like large stones. Water clear and warm. Good photos can be taken further along the road up the hill.

The rocks are beautiful to look at, but the sea is pebbly and the sea is full of seaweed. Loved the fact that you could climb the rock to jump off it too..

We enjoyed a delicious fish meze here, the only problem was we couldn't eat it all and were full to bursting by the end of it. Along with wonderful, attentive service, this is exactly the type of dining experience we love and why All Inclusive holidays aren't for us. How else do you get to experience a country and it's...

Have visited before and cannot help but come back each time, this time in the middle of the heat which was bit much as the small beach area was packed and you could barely get a seat let alone a thought to yourself. It is the myth that attracts you and keeps you guessing I think, was it true or... More

Beautiful to look at. Didn't have time to go into the water. Didn't like the shingle beach. Had to use an underpass and steps to get to the beach as a new road had been built on the mountainside. Beach and souvenir shop at the top of steps. It is just a peculiar path to the beach. View from up... More

Aphrodite was after all not real, so a lot of people are making money out of stories that were mad up years ago. The rock in the cove is just that a rock, but the cove is very pleasant and nice for a photo, nothing else. Oh be aware loads of Russian Tourists stripping off for a swim around it,... More

White rocks and blue water, absolutely beautiful. A must see and a wonderful place to take some gorgeous photos. The beach is a shinglely but sandy at the waters edge.

It will only require 5 minutes of your time. Perhaps have a swim next to it but apart from that not worth going to

Not much there but a large rock, (or two), somewhere to eat and a shingle beach. On a long drive down the old Limassol to Paphos main road it is worth a stop to refresh. The old myth says that if you swim around the rock you will have eternal youth, It doesn't work! I swam around it in 1986... More
