Petra tou Romiou is the Cypriot name for this beach, and we did not find any sign posts calling it Aphrodites Rock! Luckily, had googled ahead of going, so we're aware of the name the locals use. The rock formation is interesting,but is definitely best viewed from in the sea. The beach is shingle and pebbles which would make access... More

A beautiful stretch of unspoiled coast line of outstanding natural beauty. Aphrodite must have been a goddess if she rose serenely from the water without beach shoes though.

You should definitely go watch the sunset! Me and my boyfriens went climbing the big rock on the seashore spontaneously and I swear that was the best view ever! Put on some comfortable shoes because the cliffs aee slippery.

Great place if only it had sand! Beautiful scenic location and sea! Don't climb over the barriers across from the visitors car park. There is a tunnel near the shop!

For sure this is one of the most beautiful spots in Cyprus. It's a must go in this side of the island. I highly recommend it. The beach is natural and there is no showers or shade There is one shop across the streets with toilets and showers for pay.

If you approach from the Pissouri direction on the B6 you can stop at a number of vantage points and get spectacular views/photos down to the Rock. Access is from the opposite side of the road, where there is ample free parking, then through a small pedestrian tunnel straight out to the beach. The beach comprises pebbles and gray sand.... More
