A visit to this area helped our children understand the history of Cyprus. It is an easy swim to the rock and the sea is crystal clear. There is good parking and local facilities including toilets. An underpass helps with safe road crossing.

Visiting here felt like an adventure for the children as you park one side of the road and go through a tunnel to get to the beach. The beach is almost entirely made of large stones and can be a bit hard to walk on. The rock is impressive and the whole area is great for photos. We took a... More

this is basically a rock in the sea.Park opposite and walk through the tunnel under the road to the bEach.There is an ice cream and souvenir shop in the car park.Nice place to stop if you are passing but not worth a special trip.

Another site on the island relating to Aphrodite but this one does have lovely views. The car park is located on the opposite side of the road and has a tunnel/walkway across to the beach. Extremely busy when we visited - lots of coaches and loads of people on the small pebble beach. Also quite a lot of rubbish which... More

Lovely place to visit and swim in the clear blue sea. Be prepared though that the beach is stony and not sandy. There is a fabulous café which is on the other side of the road which is friendly and staffed by Cypriots. It's not your typical café and is very rustic which compliments your visit. There is a purpose... More

Views were amazing and it would be good to visit again and make a full day of it, there was a beach and calm sea for swimming,, there is also a cafe and toilets in the... More

Without doubt a stunning vista. The coastline along the south of the island is wonderful. We stopped briefly for photographs, but for us the beaches of the North West are more attractive, mainly because of a stronger sea breeze. There is an overpriced cafe and so we suggest bringing your own food and water - we find freezing a large... More

I was very impressed with this location splendid warm and the views are amazing I also swam up to the rock but I did not have the nerve to climb and jump off the rock before everyone else. I recommend getting there early as after 12 the coaches turn up with more tourist and it gets very busy. Also make... More

Super beach and an easy, relaxing swim to the rock. Not a whole day activity but fun and cooling in the heat, and quite a decent swim out. Recommended.
