The rocks as piece of scenery are worth a quick visit, there is a small pebble beach and the sea appeared clear and warm from a paddle. Across the road is the usual tourist shop/cafe and a car park. We were gone in 20 minutes, which was enough for us, stay longer if you want to use the beach.

Stunning views, thought of ancient history and another tick in Cyprus bucket list - reasons why to visit Aphrodite rock, where it is said that Aphrodite was born from the foam of waves in the sea. The drive until the place is also mesmerizing and picturesque. From practical side there's free parking, restroom facilities and coffee & souvenir shop opposite... More

On our first visit to Cyprus last Nov 2013 we went on an island tour, one of the many photo stops was to Aphrodites Rock. Well you have to do it dont you? ( everyone off the bus ask someone to take a photo and back on the bus) It was interesting listening to the guide explaining the story behind... More

First there is Aphrodites Bath which hidden awY and filled with the water with those magical qualities. No information written by it which was fine for us as we knew the story but we were surprised by this . Also no directions from there to the Rock so it took us a little time to find our way. Definitely worth... More

Just to say you've visited it! Free parking, toilet stop & drink. Lovely setting but get there early before the coach loads turn up. We had finished our pictures before they arrived luckily enough

We went there to enjoy a beautiful view. We did like this trip. The only thing we were dissapointed is the rough sea. The day was quite windy and there were a lot of waves crashing against the rocks on the beach. So we couldn't really enjoy swimming. Especially we considered it quite dangerous for our children to swim. In... More

To be perfectly honest there is not a lot you can see apart from a few large rocks in the sea and a nice little beach . However the story behind Aphrodites 's rock makes the whole visit very interesting .And you can swim and have refreshments near by . I would recommend visiting it .

Lovely and worth-visiting! I approached Aphrodite's rock both by land and by sea; the beach there is called "Petra tou Romiou" (the Stone of the Greek, for the no-greek-speakers) which is a beautiful bay that is approached through an engraved tunnel. Deep blue waters and the sight of the huge rock of Aphrodite in the middle take immediately your breath... More
