Legend says that Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, rose from the waves at Aphrodite's Rock on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Other legends state that if you swim three times around the rock, you'll be rewarded with eternal youth, beauty, luck, or fertility for life. Either way, if you go for it, apply plenty of sunblock beforehand. Nestled between Paphos and Limassol, far from the city, this pebble-and-stone beach presents one of the top photography spots on the island. The water is significantly colder than at most tourist spots, providing a refreshing break during the hottest months. Planning Kouklia trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

Aphrodite's Rock reviews
I was delighted by the color of the sea around the rock. Special place indeed. Pebble beach, but concerning the legend and the beauty of the landscape, that is not an issue at all. more »
Such a beautiful area along the quiet coastal road. Good parking. Stones beach and steep pitch so not great for young children but a must see area of Cyprus. more »
