Signposted Petra Tou Romiou, easily accessible from anywhere west of Larnaca, not be be missed. Large car park, shop and cafe, and free access via a passage under the road to the fabulous beach and impressive rock. Shrubs and other things are plentifully adorned with symbolic ribbons etc The beach is great for swimming but there is very little shade.

We travelled. Here on the bus631 didn't stay, just took photos then caught same bus back. If you wanted to stay you would have to find path down to the beach, we didn't as we were in a disabled party.

It is a beautiful spot but busy - worth a 10 minute stop over. Splash the water over your face and apparently you will look 10 years younger - mmmmmm.

If you visit any of the areas around here you need a car and be prepared to take the old B6 road. Views are tremendous from the road of the rocks.

Make sure you know all about the Aphrodite goddess as here is her birthplace! :) Enjoy this snorkeling and historic site. Not an extensive area so if u visit this area in the busiest months, you will find difficult tohave park and to have a peacefull time!
