From the car park there is a narrow pedestrian tunnel to the beach. The beach is very pebbly but the views are spectacular. We climbed up the rock. We took some lovely photos .

This could possibly be my favourite part of my holiday in Cyprus. It's located in a nice little quiet area, with beautiful scenery. It would be easier to drive here. You can spend a couple of hours here or just pass by for photo opportunities. For the adventurous and daring ones, you get the most beautiful view if you climb... More

I think my headline says it all really. Lots of coaches which offload the hoards. My Spouse came here when it was relatively unknown and unspoilt. Best to visit early or late

Went to reminisce as we had visited this place 25 years a ago when we were here on honeymoon. Still just as fantastic and could actually get nearer to the rock and able to swim in the sea. Well worth a visit when in Paphos.

Real nice spot not far from Paphos, some real good photo opportunities. You can also climb the big rock (not the one in the sea) for different vantage points, make pretty cool pictures. Some people go for swim on that beach, it's all pebbles so wear shoes.

Loved the unsophisticated beach. Simple clean and beautiful for swimming and snorkling. Nice bar at the top for drinks and snacks.

Aphrodite's rock is an interesting and inspiring rock which lies just of the coast south of Paphos near to the village of Kouklia. The rock has its status in mythology as the birthplace of the famous Aphrodite, hence its fame. One can take good photos from the roadside of the rock with the blue sea surrounding it, or one can...
