café above Aphrodite's birthplace is lovely. Almond Cake is superb. If you want to visit the beach there are a lot of steps so if you have mobility difficulties it may not be for you.

It's just a rock; and the beach next to it is also full of rocks and is very small, so can get very crowded. Oh and the amazing view? Of a rock... The coastline is nice if you're driving between Paphos and Limassol but I cannot understand why this place has become so famous.

Do wish there was a bit more explanation of the myths of the site. Our visit in January 2015 didn't allow swimming as the sea was cold and very... More

We thought that aphrodites rock was a must see thing while in Cyprus. But we drove for an hour just to see a rock in the sea with people swimming around it

If you love Greek mythology it's good to stare at the rocks and imagine the goddess being born from the foam. According to popular legend you will be blessed with eternal beauty if you swim Around the rock 3 times. The sea around the rock can be rough at times, so swimming there should be done with caution. There are... More

Well worth a visit (catch a bus from the harbour bus station which takes you straight there) stunning scenery if you climb the hill on the left.
