Location: Cyprus
 It was around 1200 BC when Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty, emerged from the gentle jade-colored sea foam at Petra tou Romiou, a boulder that juts up from the south coast of Cyprus as majestically today as it did then. The name Aphrodite, in fact, means “foam born.” She was the most ancient goddess in the Olympian pantheon.
The island pays tribute to this mythical goddess in many ways, keeping the mystical stories of the Greek Gods alive, most notably is the preservation of the Baths of Aphrodite. The tranquil site is hidden away in Polis in north Cyprus and legend says it is where the goddess met up with her beloved Adonis. Secluded and enchanting, this spell bounding place boasts gorgeous views of the Bay of Polis.
Although the story of Aphrodite may be one of the strongest defining moments when calling Cyprus the island of love, the truth lies in the finer details of this beautiful place.
