Akrotiri (promontory) is one of the Santorini's villages, which is located at the southwestern end of the island at a distance of 15 kilometers from the capital city (Fira). It is a real promontory, with sheer cliff shores stretching three miles west of the southernmost part of Santorini.
It became world famous thanks to the first prehistoric settlement on the island discovered in 1967 after systematic excavations.
In the village of Akrotiri there are mini markets and convenient stores, restaurants and taverns. Around and within the village there are villas, hotels and lodgings available for your holiday accommodation. On the beach and very close to the prehistorically settlement ruins there are also restaurants to enjoy your lunch and dinner.
