Akrotiri Wide




Akrotiri settlement is in the southwestern and most distant edge of the island, 15 km from Fira. Akrotiri became particularly famous for the ancient city that was discovered buried under the volcanic ashes.

The lighthouse, Faros is situated at this area of the island and from there you can observe the Indian figure on the black mountain (Mauro vouno) that has been carved by the most talented sculptor, Mother nature.

 Either in the morning or in the afternoon the view of the endless blue and the rest of the island, from the lighthouse, is magnificent and the sunset is like a dream.
