Come on people! Why all crowd around that end of the beach to have your photo taken with a rock in the sea as a backdrop It's not even an interestingly shaped or coloured rock at that? Don't get it We stopped on the headland overlooking "Aphrodites birthplace" as the sun went down as got a nice shot of which... More

It was good to look at from the hill, but nothing special, we went on a coach trip. Not sure if it would be better if you went in a car and actually got up close.

This is beautiful place to visit. The sea is just perfect and the panoramic views are so relaxing. I highly recommend this area, where the Greek Goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, was borne from this very waters!

Immerse yourself in the romantic dream. Wear some footwear for the rocks and go for a swim where Aphrodite was born. They say you find true love if you tie a handkerchief on the tree that is on the beach there. What's the harm in trying:) It's a picturesque spot to stop especially if you have a hired car -not...

The history of the rock was interesting, but not much to look at if you was not aware, it's was just anothere rock sticking out of the sea

This area has a nice little beach but there is not much else to do but sit on the beach and look at the rock, it was a bit too far out for me to even entertain swimming around it for eternal youth.

Beautiful photo opportunity what ever time of day you visit. The beach here isn't the best around but always attracts people. You may have to park on the other side of a busy road so extra care needed to cross if you have older or young children in your group.

Steps and a very narrow underpass under the road to reach the beach which is really pebbly but the rock is amazing and you can swim around it. There's a cafe in the car park and gift shop to purchase merchandise. A very busy tourist attraction.
