Always worth a visit when in Cyprus

Nice place to visit when in Cyprus. Very good for photography , sometimes busy but worth a visit some people swim around the rock

It is a nice romantic place, and it worth going, for the fun to say that you saw the place of birth of Aphrodite. Went in february and it was warm enough to swim (quickly)

Given the grand legend of the birth of Aphrodite that is attached to this rock, one would expect one of the wonders of the world. Instead, you'll find just a large boulder along the coast, and that's without mentioning the coastal road running just behind it.

We have visited this location many times. The mythology surrounding the place is important, of course, but it is a great walk along the stony beach on its own. The water was getting cold at the time of my last visit, but many visitors love to swim around the rock from March to November. The cafe/shop has been refurbished and... More

The rock and surrounding beach area form a nice little cove, offering great views. But beware that this spot is very popular with both tourists and locals, so it is often crowded. Also know that the beach is rocky, not sandy, so it is not comfortable to lay out/sit down. Otherwise, though, the water was very calm and the area... More
