History


Description

The Love Bridge is a rather big natural bridge which extends into the sea. It is possible to walk across the bridge and go swimming at its foot. The best time for a picture is obviously sunset.

The name Love Bridge is a result of the fact that Cypriots consider it the most romantic place on the island. According to legend, if you kiss while standing in the middle of the bridge arch and make a wish, it will definitely come true. As a result it is a tradition for honeymooners and couples to visit the place. Some even hold symbolic marriage ceremonies here, a Christian marriage is under the Greek Orthodox Church not possible outside the church.
