Create an itinerary including Aphrodite's Rock
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 overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • If you’re near by and have a car this place is worth a visit. Yes it’s just a rock but it is a pretty setting and something different to do. There’s a gift shop with toilets on the car park for it.

  • Stunning views. Worth a trip. Ensure you see the view of Aphrodites Rock from the Restaurant just beyond set up high on the hill. (Not affected by the current road closure)

  • Nice rock beach. Kiosk for refreshments but no bathrooms. Road to the actual viewpoint is closed currently
  • A nice place with a nice story. It is worth a ride if you combine it with a visit to the beach next to the rock. No sandy beach but little grit.
