  • Unforgettable experience. Don’t forget to climb on the rock - the beautiful view will appear for you! Before the trip better to take good shoes for your comfortable climbing.

  • One of my favourite spot in Cyprus. Much quieter than the commercial beaches full of tourists. Turquoise water and the sea stack are gorgeous, absolutely wonderful to enjoy a good afternoon there.

  • This used to be called Aphrodite's rock. And legend had it that if you swim around it you will have everlasting love. I swam round it in 1967 and have now been married for 46 years, maybe there's something in it. There is a small gift shop and tavetner at the other side of the road where you can park for free and a tunnel under the road for safe access. Well worth a visit if only to throw a few pebbles into the sea.

  • A fantastic location in Cyprus that is still great to visit. The fact there are no drunk tourists here makes it even more enjoyable. The beach is a pebble beach and is best enjoyed with waterproof shoes. The location is great for amateur photographers and drone pilots as long as they are respectful of the people around. There are some amazing photo opportunities here. A perfect location for a family or couples.

  • They say that you'll find true love I you find a heart shaped stone at this beach. It's known as Aphrodite's birthplace. You have a beautiful view.
