Aphrodite's Rock, Paphos Reviews
This was by far my most favourite beach whilst on holiday in Paphos. If you hire a car make sure you visit this particular beach. Stunning views and just a feeling of peace and serenity sitting watching the waves lap. Would recommend wearing footwear whilst walking across the pebbles.
Beautiful location and nice beach. Not a huge amount to do other than enjoy the views and climb the rocks but well worth a stop on a road trip. Make sure you climb the big rock to enjoy stunning views
Amazing place. Typical turquoise blue Mediterranean waters. Flat pebbles on the beach. Chalky white rocks helping waves to break and make soothing sound. You can attend the whole day
It was sunny because we arrived during the day time. The sea was wet, which was nice because the land was dry. I liked the wet sea, it was nice to get wet in the sea and then dry on the dry land. People leave messages in the pebbles, one said beer, so I added the word 'cake' because I like cake. Seriously though, beautiful spot and we'll worth a few hours of your time to relax and enjoy fabulous Cyprus.
Cool place. Lovely swimming but very stony beach. Locals say those who swim around the rock 3 times are rewarded with a longer life. I feel fitter for it so ok, maybe, yeah...
