Having visited this popular attraction several times in the past I find it strange that it is one of the top attractions in Cyprus, yet there is apart from the rock very little else. Tempted to swim around the rock three times according to folklore to find love I gave up, my partner was not happy about it and hid... More

We were taken here on a tour of the island. The view of the rock and the sea is worth a photograph. Not worth a pilgramage but worthwhile visiting as you pass along the main road to Paphos

When someone decided to make a tourist attraction from one of the many rocks around the coast is your guess. One that did not make it is now labelled "Aphrodite's Bath" on the NW Coast and there are plenty of other Aphrodite attractions around the island. It's pretty enough, but crowded and you will find better beaches elsewhere. Still, it's... More

view the rocks from the high vantage points for some good pics.take the coast road there, stopping off at view points on the way, then take the motorway back into the heart of paphos, hire a car, they drive on the same side of the road as the uk, we had a car for 22euro per day,

The restaurant high above the rock looked scruffy and smelled of drains and baked fish. An almost undrinkable cup of instant coffee - quite the worst and most expensive in all our travels - was all we had before moving quickly on. Would not go there again. This is a pity as the site is beautiful with great potential.

What a lovely treasure to find, a beautiful place and the most beautiful sunset we saw during our stay this time...At the top of the hill, was an Ice Cream Van, just parked in the middle of nowhere, but had the most amazing fresh Pomegranate juice. It did make me laugh, but a welcome refreshment along route..

This is one of the most touristy spot on the island. It's definitely beautiful but very crowded as it is located next to the main road. Prefer the left side when going down the hill, the beach might seem not as nice as the one in the right side but is very quite with few tourists.

Been to see this place for 23 years now. Sometimes more than once on our holiday. Never ceases to enchant. It is not only the rocks themselves, naturally, but the whole vista : the blue sea, sky and the huge blazing white bleakness of the dry hill rock behind and above. It is all quiet, too, being a National Park.... More

Visited as part of a Jeep day out. Hang a hanky and make those pains go away, can't remember the name of this bush tho. Very safe crossing under an underpass to get here. I'd suggest not swimming as tides are very strong but nice to go here and be with your partner
