We visited just before sunset. The beach is very pebbly so wear sensible shoes. You can climb the rock to the top and watch the sunset with stunning views. Peaceful and quiet. Great for photo opportunities. The car park is on the opposite side of...More

You can’t go to Paphos area without visiting Aphrodite’s Rock. Just a short trip on the local bus. The views from the top of the cliff are lovely.

Aphrodite’s rock is a great spot. Visually very beautiful and great for photos. Essentially, it’s a stretch of pristine beach covered in pebbles and a rock formation in the water where Aphrodite supposedly bathed to recharge her batteries. It can be relaxing here but be...More

I can’t speak for tours, but if you rented a vehicle (which you 100% should in Cyprus) and are in the area, I would highly recommend stopping here to view a sunset. It is beautiful. The gift shop/restaurant nearby is semi-moderately priced and there is...More

Hi there, there is a bus that stops there. If you go to the bus terminal opposite the harbour, you can catch the bus from there. It's around 4 Euro each way.
