Aphrodite's Rock, Paphos Reviews - Write a Review
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.
Nice place with a little tunnel to the beach. Interesting bit of mythology and a down to earth simple Cafe and gift shop. A good place to park, change and go to the beach. You can shower here afterwards too and fill up the tum in the cafe 😀 one pitfall: polystyrene cups: yuk 😕! Other than that, it ticked all the right boxes.......
Eldest daughter wanted to go see it as she'd been reading Percy Jackson books. Youngest daughter was thoroughly unimpressed by a few large rocks. Note: there is a kiosk nearby but no other amenities and the kiosk owners know this and charge accordingly. Recommend you take a packed lunch and water if visiting.
I guess this is something that most people want to put on the map and it's ok, but not spectacular. The view is nice, the beach less so. On the positive side it is well organised with parking, WC and even showers (50 cent coin vital)
Pebbly beach with large rock formations, said to be birth place of Aphrodite. Nice views, waves crashing into the fairly exposed shore. Quite some people swimming and sunning. Pedestrian underpass to the rock from the car park is currently functioning (August 2017). It has a number of steps and is quite narrow.
