Aphrodite's Rock, Paphos Reviews
Magical place. Went during a holiday to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary so it felt very special. Beach wasn't too overcrowded but very popular. Free car park with under road walkway to the beach. Went late afternoon and lots of buses coming and going. Also went early evening where it was not so busy. Shop in car park a bit overpriced. Toilet and showers available.
It's a beautiful area and the underpass leading to the beach itself is quite mystical. However, the signs for the underpass are poorly labeled and many individuals tried to cross the busy street and clamber down the hill to get to the beach. It is possible to climb the larger rock but would warrant extreme caution. The beach is very pebbly and isn't optimal for sunbathing or for running around barefoot. Furthermore, having more information about the rock/attraction itself could be beneficial but other than minor details, the scenery is beautiful and well worth a quick visit.
This place was really magical and romantic. Great place to take pictures and even go for a swim. The rocks are quite unique and some are great to skim on the water if you want to be a kid lol. Definitely a great place for a picnic or to walk around for a couple hours with the family! We are glad we didn't take a buggy as its not wheelchair friendly.
Beautiful scenic beach. We caught the 631 bus from Paphos harbour ( only €1.50 for a single journey) Safe access to the beach is down some steps and through an underpass. The pebble beach drops steeply into the sea and swimming can be challenging with big waves on even a calm day. The bus doesn't run through the middle of the day and there is no shade or sunbeds/parasols on the beach so you will need some sun protection or you can take shelter in the cafe.
The mystique, the significance, the history, the hearts in the sand.. Magical for those who are or still believe in love and make the most of the beautiful scenery and views 💗 Make sure you take the safe underpass route to the beach! It's down the stairs on the left hand side of the little shop.
