Petra tou Romiou - Birthplace of Aphrodite

This unusual rock formation standing in the shallow sea beside the Limassol- Paphos highway must be the most famous spot in Cyprus. It is here that Aphrodite is supposed to have emerged and set foot on earth for the first time.

Also The Greek name, Petra tou Romiou (The Rock of the Greek), is associated with the legendary frontier-guard of Byzantine times, Dighenis Akritas, who kept the marauding Saracens at bay with amazing strength. It is said in one such fight he heaved a large rock (Petra), at his enemy.
