This a spectacular beach with breathtaking views, this golden stretch of sandy coast is surrounded by large rocks, it is rumoured that the Greek goddess of love goddess Aphrodite rose from the foam of wave here. This place is a great inspiration for artists and poets, the beach has two large rocks which can't be missed, these rocks are called Petra tou romiou, i.e. the "Rock of the Greek" the rock is supposed to be thrown by the Byzantium warrior, Digenis Akritas who was trying to protect the island from Arab pirates. The name of the beach is hence inspired by the rocks, Petra Tou Romiou is an ideal location for long walks and solitude, tourists out for honeymoon or solitude should definitely visit this place.
