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.

  • Great place, stunning views, beach is rocky and Pebbles but there is sand here. Lots of space so not too crowded. Underpass from the carpark next to the shop, but is only suitable for able bodied, people on foot, not suitable for push chairs or wheelchair users.Free parking
  • Beautiful scenery and beach but the shop is super overpriced. Visit the lovely restaurant nearby instead ;)
