The nature surrounding The Afrodite Beach Hotel is a big part of the pure beauty of the hotel. It is a place where the clear turquoise sea meets the wild, uninhabited hills and rocks of the Akamas Peninsula National Park. The uniqueness of this untouched area is due, not only to the indisputable charm of the natural landscape – perfect for walks, bicycle rides, bird-watching, flora or painting – but also to its cultural and mythological wealth.
2.4km from the hotel are the baths of the goddess Aphrodite. According to legend, the goddess of love would bathe here, and it is also the place she is said to have met her lover, Adonis.
The small fishing harbour of Latchi is situated only 3km away from the hotel. A short distance along the coastal boardwalk of Latchi, you come to the picturesque harbour of Polis, known throughout Cyprus for its fresh fish. In the past it served as a small port for shipping carob (a healthy alternative to chocolate that's been in use for 4000 years). The old stone carob warehouses have now been converted into restaurants, fish taverns and places for recreation.
The Aphrodite Beach Hotel is a family owned hotel, located 500 metres from the protected natural wonders of the Akamas Peninsula National Park, in the North West of Cyprus, about forty kilometres from Paphos. It is the last hotel before the Akamas and enjoys a long remote beach.
It offers comfortable spacious rooms, with private bathrooms, toilets, air-conditioning and heating. All rooms have balconies with sea views.
The hotel has two restaurants – one on the beach and one in the main building, a sitting room with a fireplace and large verandas with spectacular views over Chrysochous bay with the backdrop of the Troodos Mountains to the East, and the Akamas Peninsula National Park to the West.
The hotel is surrounded by nature and the yoga spaces have wonderful views and peaceful settings. We will practice against the backdrop of some of the best views in Cyprus and splitting our practice between indoor and outdoor venues, as well as practicing on the nearby beach.
