Aphrodite's Rock, Paphos Reviews
Aphrodite's rock is in a great location for watching the sun set into the sea. It's a fairly easy climb to the top which adventurous children of around 8yrs can manage fairly easily. Would be harder for those with limited flexibility. The beach is accessed most easily (if you can manage stairs) via a passage under the road (located next to the shop). The sand is fairly coarse with a lot of large smooth stones which people use to make love hearts. The sea has a pretty steep drop off getting quite suddenly deep, and it can be tricky to get out with the waves pulling you back! A lovely location though, and it wasn't too crowded even in peak season.
Really nice place to stop and take in the view. If you are in to your photography there are some good pictures to be taken here. Nice coffee shop/cafe/shop as well, a bit pricey but it's only one so you don't really have much option unless you take some food and drinks with you. They sell tubs of fresh fruit here which again a bit pricey but really. Toilets are pretty small and get very busy so just keep that in mind, whilst everyone else gets off the tour bus and goes straight for the rock first might be a good idea to use the toilets first. There is a tunnel that leads down to the beach so you can swim around the rocks, we didn't do this as the beach looked really busy but over the road from the cafe if you can climb over the barrier and get some really good photos from there.
Nice place, but count on the stone beach. It's worth to see and visit, but I wouldn't like it for further stay. There is a restaurant nearby, buffet and also showers (50 cents) at disposal (which was really convenient after taking a bath in the sea for we continued in our trip).
A must visit place on your way to Pafos. The view is stunning and the drive there is also worth the detour. You can also go there swim and you will have all accommodations you need. There is a large parking lot where you can find a mini market, a bar, a souvenir shop and an ice cream shop. Showers are also available at the facility at a small cost and you can also find changing rooms. From the parking lot you can get to the beach through an underground crossing. Overall a well organized attraction.
One of the best beaches in the island. Very clean, a bit windy, easy access for pedestrians. Available parking area on the opposite side of the road. The kiosk bar there is unreasonably expensive and mostly attracks tourists so I would suggest to bring your own drinks and snacks.
