Aphrodite's Rock

Πετόυ τού Ρομείου, Petrou tou Romeiou. Arguably one of the most beautiful and romantic places in Cyprus. It lies about midway between Pafos and Limassol. Better known as Aphrodite's Rock, this is the birthplace of Aphrodite. Legend has it, if you're single, that if you swim three times round the central group of rocks you will meet your true love soon afterwards. I haven't done that but have plodged in the waters hereabouts and wished my wife was with me. Perhaps she'll come to Cyprus one day and I'll show her this place.
