The best place for swimming and relaxation. The best destnation for cycling for every body and for fun from both side of the road starting from Pafos and Limassol cities.

We have known about the existence of this microbrewery for a while. We are beer lovers and from OR, USA...where microbrewery is a common thing. So we were thrilled to find out that Cyprus now has a microbrewery! This place offers a small bar now that is so friendly. The price is really...shockingly.... cheap at the bar. We visited the...

Brilliant views but be careful quite steep drop so if you have children keep an eye, not suitable really for swimming as rather nasty under currents but brilliant for pictures

Car park opposite which is free to park, there is a tunnel you can walk under to get to the beach. Yes it is very pretty to look at, however the beach is very pebbly and not comfortable to sit on. Would recommend a quick stop on route to somewhere else, nice shop near car park, ice cream lovely and... More

Not much to do there but the beach is nice but pebbly. Car parking is free and there is a shop to buy nice ice cream.

It's a rock with a cross on it. Great legion but the rock is like many other rocks not much more anyone can add. To swim around it 3 times would be a great challenge and dangerous as many rocks lie just under the surface. There will be many easier ways to meet the woman of your dreams.........

according to the legend, if you swim 3 times round the middle rock at midnight on the night of a full moon, you'll marry the woman of your dreams... its a good story (like a lot of Greek island legends), but whether it works or not, its a great place for photos and sunbathing...

Not sure how they decided which rock it was & judging by some of the review pictures a lot of tourists still have no idea. Having the rug rats in tow made it that little bit easier to believe and why not.

I had heard if you swim around the rock three times it would make you 'lucky in love' so I thought when I got there I'd try it. Well, perhaps at one time you could but the rock is landlocked now - you be swimming partially on the beach! Plus, the day I was there the water was pretty rough... More
