Being a part of the Greek goddess Aphrodite’s cult once before, Cyprus certainly is a divine place. It is a charismatic Mediterranean island full of citrus and olive trees, mountains with thick pine forests and breathtaking beaches. It has a mild Mediterranean climate, with almost a full year of sunshine. If you want a romantic and special holiday with your partner in Cyprus, you can have just that.
Petra tou Romiou
Somewhere between Limassol and Pafos, a large group of rocks are scattered on the shore. That is the place where the goddess of love, Aphrodite, rose from the waves to start her life on the island. You can witness a unique romantic sight of thousands of fishing boats rushing back to the harbor with their laden nets during sunrise. According to a local legend, every woman who wants to have eternal youth should swim to the furthest rock and back.
Around the Akamas
It can’t get more romantic than sailing in a small boat and be surrounded with beautiful blue sea, while snuggling up to your partner. Take a boat from the Latchi harbor and heads along the coast, towards the Cape Arnaouti. You’ll enjoy sceneries of sheer cliffs and bays, or you can dip in the clear blue water of the lagoons.
A sunset drink
Share a glass of wine at the restaurants overlooking Konnos Bay and gaze at the sea until your eyes get lost in the horizon. It’s an idyllic place with a golden sandy beach and amazing cliffs and a unique smell of a pine wood.
The church at Ayios Giorgios
North of Pafos a tiny fishing shelter of Ayios Giorgios overlooks the islet of Yeronisos and it is an archaeological paradise. On the cliff top you can find the modern church of Agios Georgios (or Saint George) known as the “lovers’ church.
The Troodos mountains offer romantic scenery and an amazing smell of fresh pine, accompanied with wild flowers in springtime. In the summer, the air is cool and in winter the mountains are covered by a thick fog. Explore the mountains, follow, the nature trails, and find Byzantine painted churches and monasteries. Visit the lovely mountain villages and feel the local atmosphere.
Imagine romantic hugs with your loved one under an umbrella, sitting on white sand and hearing the sound of the waves on Nissi Beach in Ayia Napa. Out there in the sea there is a small island that you can reach by swimming, and you will likely find just the two of you out there.
