Brilliant beach days
Tour around Akrotiri’s amazing beaches, starting with Caldera Beach. It’s a quiet stretch of dark sand offering lovely views towards the Caldera. On the other side of the peninsula, tick off a trio of amazing beaches. Aspri Beach is a pretty cove, Mesa Pigadia Beach is carpeted in black sands and Kokkini is a spectacular stretch backed by red-hued cliffs.
Superb sunsets and sightseeing
Right on the far tip of the peninsula is Akrotiri Lighthouse, a bright-white 19th-century number that contrasts beautifully with the rusty-coloured rocks it’s perched on. Come here for mesmerising sunset views to rival those of Oia. Don’t miss the Minoan treasures at ancient Akrotiri either, with well-preserved relics from the Bronze Age to discover.
