Live the myth at Aphrodite's Rock




Paphos District

The coastal town of Paphos with its medieval fort and quaint harbor is harmonious combination of historical sites, tourist resort and wonderful countryside. It is a region where it combines mountainous areas and the sea. It harmoniously joins culture, contemporary life and historic archaeological sites. The Maa-Paleokastro site near Coral Bay holds an admirable view. It is where the Mycenaean Greeks first landed in Cyprus during the Bronze Age. Travel further inland and go on a wine village tour, make sure to visit the Chrysorrogiatissa Monastery and admire its beautiful icons, and, taste the wine there- the Monastery produces wine from its own winery. Enjoy any of the numerous activities on offer in the Paphos district, from sea sports, golf, diving, swimming, snorkeling, visit traditional villages- especially round the Polis area whilst sampling the long standing Cyprus cuisine and being charmed by the traditional architecture of the houses, explore the countryside, check out the water park, go carting; the list goes on.

The Akamas peninsula is a nationally protected area of untamed wilderness with awe-inspiring coastlines and sandy bays. Take in the panoramic views from the top. One of the last nesting grounds in the Mediterannean Sea for the Green-Back and Loggerhead turtles is located here; on Lara Beach. Walk on one of the numerous nature trails and explore the rare endemic plants and spot different migratory birds. A thoroughly memorable experience would be a boat trip along the awesome coastline which includes the famous Aphrodite’s Rock.
