Highlights of Petra tou Romiou
Aphrodite's Rock (or Petra tou Romiou) is said to be the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite where she rose from the sea foam. The beauty of the area and Aphrodite's popular status has attracted much fame for this area and in pre Roman times the worship of Aphrodite was common until the cult was crushed by the Romans. (Evident in the nearby Sanctuary of Aphrodite at Kouklia)
Located on the main coastal road in between Limassol and Paphos, the sea stack is a popular photo point with tourists. The sea is rather rough here and the beach is rock and shingle which dissuades many people from stopping but legend has it that anyone who swims around the rock will be blessed with eternal beauty. Climbing the rock itself is not permitted.
Aphrodite's Rock is 155 km from Ayia Napa and it takes around 1 hour 40 minutes to get there.
