Alluring Akrotiri Holidays 2020

Nestled on the southern coast of Santorini (officially called Thira), one of the most beautiful of the Greek Islands, Akrotiri is a sleepy little village full of authentic Greek charm. It is located next to one of Santorini’s most visited historical attractions, an astonishing Minoan Bronze Age settlement. Two of the loveliest beaches on Santorini are also nearby: the Red Beach and the White Beach, a pair of exquisite little coves. The vibrant island capital of Fira, perched high on a cliff-top overlooking a harbour, is just a 25-minute drive away. Akrotiri is the perfect spot for a real island escape, infused with old-world Greek charm yet still benefiting from some excellent hotels, beachfront restaurants and facilities.

Akrotiri is a pretty, tranquil little seaside resort on the southern coast of Santorini, one of the most romantic and glamorous of the Greek Islands. Akrotiri is a whitewashed string of hotels and taverns set along the waterfront, and you can pick up a boat (or walk) to the famous Red Beach. This spectacular cove has red sands and ochre cliffs, which are crowned by the little whitewashed church of Agios Nikolaos. Next to it is the smaller White Beach, which is backed with white cliffs. Akrotiri is located next to the spectacular Bronze Age Minoan settlement which shares the same name, and is one of the finest archaeological sites on the island. If you fancy some shopping and sightseeing, head to the island capital of Fira, about a 25-minute drive away.



Akrotiri beach fringes the lower end of the town. Small and pebbly, it still makes for good paddling and has a smattering of marvellous beachfront restaurants which provide both stunning views and delicious dining as the sun dips into the aquamarine sea. Akrotiri is also fantastically situated for accessing one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The striking burnt red sands of Red Beach are just a 15-minute walk from town (or a short boat-trip away). The proximity of Akrotiri to this sought-after bay gives you ample opportunity to beat the crowds and stake your claim on this slice of paradise. Around the corner from Red Beach lies White Beach, which is ideal for those looking to spend lazy beach days undisturbed.
