Aphrodite's Rock, Paphos Reviews
Historically, there’s not really much to see. It’s almost like an ancient tourist trap. But, it’s free to get to. And, the scene itself is beautiful. I appreciated it more just for its natural beauty rather than its historical nature. And, I really liked the narrow tunnel that goes underneath the freeway. For some reason I thought that was cool.
This is a nice but crowded tourist attraction. The main attraction is the rock itself, in the water. You can climb the rock. There is a beach, a kiosk, a parking lot, and a bus stop. The sea has currents at this location, so it is not entirely safe to swim. There is no lifeguard.
Nice scenery and a bit out if the way. Sea lovely and clear. Not too busy when we went. Not much a sand beach though - more shale and pebbles. Plenty of area to walk round. Car parking near by which is free.
Taking the scenic coastal route along the way you make your way by foot into a tunnel under the main road to get to the beach. A beautiful area with the rock of Aphrodite in the distance. Was a pleasant 15 minute stop along the way to see other historical sites in the area
Cool place withe a great view to see . Only if the crowd wasn't that big would be better. Otherwise it's nice and romantic, especially by sunset, there is a special vibe. Take some selfies and don't regret it 😃
