Aphrodite’s beach in Kouklia is very pebbly and to get to the sea you will have to walk over the pebbles and even some boulders, so wearing beach shoes would be advisable. The main attraction of this beach is that you can swim out and climb onto Aphrodite’s Rock which according to legend, is where Aphrodite (the Goddess of Love) chose to begin her life as a human after travelling the seas and oceans.
Surrounded by other smaller rocks, Aphrodite’s Rock is covered in corals, seaweed, and shells which makes it quite slippery, so you do need to be careful if you climb onto it.
The sea is a stunning colour and very clear and the beach is well worth a visit. Parking is free and there is a small shop providing drinks and snacks and there are toilet facilities in the tourist pavilion.
