  • 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.

  • Very cool location. Rocks were neat, shore line was awesome. Water had a lot of seaweed in it and not as much nice beach sand, so there were other places on the island I would recommend more as far as nice swimming locations.

  • Great beach! Recommended to come here early in the morning to get a good spot. The beach is quite extended, therefore if you walk a little bit you can find some areas not that crowded.

  • Very beautiful location at sunset. Get a blanket, some food and bottle of wine and enjoy a marvelous sun setti g over the horizon. Very romantic. The beach itself is good, but rocky. During the day it is filled with people as tour buses stop there. There is also a conveniently located parking, but it can fill up quickly

  • Aphrodite's Rock is a nice secluded beach, no sand,just rocks, but it's quite charming. Worth a visit. The big rock provides shadow areas all time of the day, the water was amazing even if it was the beginning of October. There were a lot of turists,but most of them arrived just to take pictures, then left (strangely). There is a free parking, a safe passage to arrive at the beach near a shop. In the shop you will find toilets, a coffee place and ice cream parlour, and behind the shop there are showers.
