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 😃
