Enjoy Valentine’s day on Aphrodite’s island

Cyprus is possibly the most perfect place to spend Valentine’s day – the concept of love was invented here.

The west coast of Cyprus was the birth place of Aphrodite and it still exudes beauty and romance.  The dramatic and picturesque landscape inspires artists and poets to this day.

Aphrodite’s rock is the legendary place where the goddess of love rose from the sea.  There’s a legend that states if a girl swims clockwise around the rock on a full moon then she will see a vision of her one true love.

Whether that’s true or not who knows but it’s a legend fraught with danger as the currents in Cyprus can be very strong indeed.

There are also other locations in Cyprus inspired by the gods such as the Adonis pool where legend has it the two lovers Aphrodite and Adonis were said to have frolicked.  Myths have it that swimming in the pool brings you luck in love however judging by the colour of the pool I think you’d have to be lucky you don’t catch something 😉

Lovers that decide to spend Valentine’s day in Paphos could make like the locals and head to spend a romantic evening in a log cabin with hot tub in the Troodos mountains ski resort.   The following day returning to the coast for a BBQ on the beach maybe leading to a late night skinny dip around Aphrodite’s rock?
