As mentioned in my previous post on Paphos, there are lots of day trips you can do in Cyprus as the country is relatively small. One of the most iconic would be to see Aphrodite’s Rock, a sea stack on the shore. In mythology it’s the birthplace of Aphrodite and where she walked out of the ocean but mixed with the beautiful beach and turquoise sea it makes for a nice break destination. To get there we drove along a stunning costal road that makes you feel so small against the wide ocean. Once you’re there it’s a lovely place to go for a walk and collect stones, the pebbles are a very trendy shade of grey and perfect as shelf trinkets. I’m not fully sure but there were also several bushes that had plastic ribbons tied to them as you enter the beach. I think they are offerings and wishes but what I find a little weird is using plastic bags for the offerings oppose to something more environmentally friendly (and nice to receive like food). Nearby there’s a little shop and a cafe (perfect for a Cypriot coffee and delicious, sweet pastry).
