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.

  • The rock is located next to the highway Paphos-Limassol and is very easy to reach. We have seen only from above, but since he was already beautiful. The light suit. The beach must be really impressive. A must for Cyprus visitors.

  • They say here Aphrodite emerged from the sea foam, place the magic, although judging by the name here was the city and stoned kidalis' Romans conquerors. You can swim and find beauty and youth-all true) and ask Aphrodite can help me. For me it and place forces and the magic and signed-in general are well worth a visit. Swim, take up stones, Don Juan meet local) stones are beautiful, photo

  • Very nice view of the beach with big rocks in the sea . Believed to be the place where Aphrodite came out of the sea . Stop your car to watch and take a photo .  more »
