Stunning! To take in Aphrodite's Rock from either approach it is hard to fathom that something of such natural beauty just sits there. Not only that, unlike if it was on a British shoreline, this attraction comes with free car parking and no entry fee whatsoever. Whilst it has a beach it is not really that suitable for spending the... More

This is a very busy place to visit. It has a safe passage under the road for the visitors to reach the beach / rock. Make sure you wear sturdy shoes the beach is made of pebbles and the tide is quite strong. You may need to queue to get the famous pose by the rock ! well worth a... More

This is an rather unimpressive rock in the sea where Aphrodite apparently emerged from the sea. Put aside your romantic visions of this place. I give it an average rating purely because it is a nice place to swim. You may want to stop if passing by but not worth a trip

Undertook a good trek to get there and was a little disappointed especially as one of the locals informed us that it was a site made up just for the tourists Not sure how true this sentiment was but, when in Paphos it would be a shame not to see the sight.

Place is for attracting tourists. Legends say that Aphrodite emerged here from the sea. Just for stop and quick photo, nothing more.

This is a charming part of Cyprus the beach and waters around the rock are mythical its got a feel to it only explained if you have experienced it. You must make the effort and go down to the beach there and not as some do just take photograph's from the top. Spend a little time here this is the... More

We decided this beach to by our "goodbye" to Cyprus after some years and we didn't regret it. At first I really like the story of Aphrodite foam-arisen in this beach (in one of the myth's versions). It is interesting to realize that this beach is foamy most of the times which of course makes sense and justifies the myth.... More

A beautiful location. The sea is crystal clear. It is easy to park with a dedicated under road tunnel for ease of access. There is also somewhere is grab a drink in the carpark. We would recommend afterwards driving up the road slightly where there are view points to stop and take photos.

We visited Aphrodite's rock as part of an excursion. It's was good to understand the meaning behind it and is well worth a visit. It's set on a nice beach... but the beach is stoney so be warned.
