You will be staying at a gorgeous Mediterranean beachfront hotel called Aphrodite Beach Hotel. It is a small family-owned hotel, located 500 meters from the most beautiful and serene place in Cyprus, the Akamas Peninsula National Park, in the North West of Cyprus and about 40 kilometres from Paphos.
You have a choice of booking a shared twin room with a single bed or a private double-bed room all for yourself.
The Aphrodite Beach Hotel is the ideal location for people looking for a warm and peaceful place where it is all about the guests and a treat for their souls and hearts. The surrounding nature is a big part of the food for souls as it is very pure. It is a place where the clear turquoise sea meets the strong energy of the hills and the rocks of the Akamas National Park. The uniqueness of the Akamas is due not only to the indisputable charm of the natural landscape, perfect for walks, bicycle rides, bird-watching, flora, and painting, but also to its cultural and mythological wealth.
It is a perfect place where you can just unwind, relax, and be present at the moment, flowing in the rhythm of the nature surrounding you, listening to the waves while meditating and doing yoga.
