Cyprus information: romantic break, Aphrodite’s rock at Petra tou Romiou


The island of Cyprus has a long history of romance. According to legend, Aphrodite was born there, and Anthony gave the island to Cleopatra as a wedding present. All this makes Cyprus one of the most romantic islands in the world and the perfect place to rekindle the spark on Valentine's Day.

Visit Aphrodite’s rock at Petra tou Romiou, birthplace of the Greek goddess. A stroll along the narrow pebbly beach is idyllic, but for the most beautiful setting, visit the rock at sunset to take in the striking view. Horse rising is very popular in Cyprus and many operators offer escorted horse rides through the beach and countryside.
