Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 2,600+ 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.

  • See the most beautiful Bay where there is the rock where Venus landed by sea at birth (that fantasy) from the top of the road down from Pissouri that live. Pebble Beach, very busy with tourists (mostly Russians) in search of excitement. It is accessible by parking on the right of the B6 to Paphos and down a tunnel that leads to the beach.
