Aphrodite's Rock, Kouklia

(3.3/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
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. Arrange your visit to Aphrodite's Rock and discover more family-friendly attractions in Kouklia using our Kouklia tourist route planner.

  • Aphrodites Rock or place of birth is a beautiful little detour. The site consists of a rocky beach in a small rocky Cove. Nature shows up here from one of its great-looking pages. There are many good myths associated with this particular place.

  • It is a nice romantic place, and it worth going, for the fun to say that you saw the place of birth of Aphrodite. Went in february and it was warm enough to swim (quickly)
