The restaurant on the hill is cooking up some of the most delicious Cypriot food I have ever tasted ! Mouth - watering and at very affordable prices! The view is breath taking and is a must if you visit Cyprus!

the Aphrodite's Rock located in the Petra tou Romiou and takes about 15 minutes to get it from Paphos . Beautiful view on the Aphrodite rock and sea when you achieve it .

We got there early, before the hoard of other tourists, and it was serene, mystical and surprisingly clean. The water was lovely and it was a good spot for relaxing and taking in the sea.

This is just literally (as another Trip Advisor reviewer has pointed out) a rock in the sea! It's pretty as far as natural landmarks go but why it is in all the tourist guidebooks for Cyprus is beyond me. The beach area around it is quite nice and I understand it does have some mythological history surrounding it but that... More

What can you say, it is a rock in the sea, nothing spectacular about it. A car park opposite has signs saying this way safely to the beach with an arrow pointing up the car area. Followed this but this leads to a nature trail, returned back and then found the ‘magic tunnel’ under the road and foreshore onto the... More

Lovely setting and as part of the Island's history you must see it but at the same time do not expect too much. Lovely beach area and nice to swim near or around if you are a good swimmer but not too much else to see/do

Aphrodite's Rock brewery is certainly worth a visit, but you need a sober driver. You're invited to sample cask ales, mark them and decide what you want to imbibe. Excellent!
