The resorts of Aphrodite Sands and Aphrodite Hills are situated in South West Cyprus, just outside of Paphos. Both resorts are named after the Goddess of Love, likely due to their proximity to Aphrodite’s rock or ‘Petra tou Romiou’, the spot where, according to legend, Aphrodite emerged from the sea.
Aphrodite Hills is home to one of the best golf courses in Cyprus, from which you can enjoy spectacular views out over the Mediterranean. Down the hill, in tranquil Mandria, you will find the Aphrodite Sands resort, where traditional Cypriot village life can be experienced.
There is a selection of cafes, restaurants and shops in both resorts but, if you find yourself looking for a wider selection, lively Paphos is a mere 20 minutes away. Activities that can be enjoyed in the surrounding areas include diving in Paphos, taking a trip to the Aphrodite water park or going on the old Venetian camel trail.
