What's Akrotiri beach like

Akrotiri beach is a small beach on the south coast of Santorini close to the Ancient Akrotiri archaeological site. It's about 12km from the islands capital Fira and that's about a 20 minutes drive.

Akrotiri beach is a stretch of dark pebbles between two sets of tavernas, it's around 100m long and less than 10m deep, even at it's widest point. At the rear of the beach are some interesting cave houses that are now used for storing fishing boats. which gives Akrotiri beach a unique appeal.

The tavernas at either end of Akrotiri beach have outdoor seating areas that offer stunning views of the Santorini cliffs, the perfect spot to sit and relax with a nice lunch or a cold drink.

Other than the tavernas, there's not a lot of facilities on the beach, there's sometimes sun loungers but not always. There's no water sports or other entertainment and no showers. There is some parking available at the rear of the beach between the tavernas and some roadside parking too.

Akrotiri is not recommended for children as the pebbles and rocks are quite large and the sea gets deep quickly. It's usually pretty quiet though so if you want to get away from the crowds then it's a good choice.

If you visit Akrotiri beach and would prefer a bit of extra space then you can head east, past the tavernas and Akrotiri hotel and then there's miles of rugged pebble beach that you can almost have to yourself.
