Holidays to Aphrodite Hills take you to an exclusive resort in Cyprus, with lush countryside, an 18-hole golf course and as much relaxation as you can handle.
Situated in the Paphos region of Cyprus is Aphrodite Hills – a beautiful Cruise & Stay holiday destination that offers ample opportunity to soak up the sun, get active or simply be pampered from head to toe.
Award-winning, luxurious facilities
Aphrodite Hills has received international recognition for its remarkable leisure facilities. Small wonder, too, as visitors to the area have a wide choice of things to do, like playing a round of golf at the resort’s 18-hole course. These links are considered among the best in Europe, perhaps because of the views out over the Med. Your other options include splashing around at an award-winning waterpark or relaxing the body and mind at a luxury spa.
This holiday hotspot is named after Aphrodite, the goddess of love, beauty and desire, and it’s just a stone’s throw from Aphrodite’s Rock – renowned as her birthplace. Don’t expect sunbeds or bars here – this is a site of pure natural beauty. While the waters that dash themselves on the Rock prevent visitors from swimming up to it, a walk along the pebbled beach will get you very close. There’s also a restaurant that provides picture-perfect views.
The food of love
There’s always something going on at Aphrodite Hills and the neighbouring areas. September is a great month for music lovers, as this is when the Paphos Aphrodite Festival – which hosts a production by a well-known opera troupe – and the Paradise Jazz Festival take place. And for those who enjoy a tipple or two, there are wine and beer festivals held each year in Paphos. The Aphrodite Hills square is also the setting for various events, including regular markets.
A destination to discover
If you love to explore and embrace new experiences, you won’t be disappointed with a stay at Aphrodite Hills, before or after your cruise. You might trot through the local countryside on horseback, discover the area's viewpoints on a mountain bike, or dive and snorkel in the temperate, turquoise waters. Then you can unwind with a stroll through the Paphos Botanical Gardens, which has around 55,000 plants and flowers, and also runs a Cypriot pottery workshop.
