A tranquil village with important attractions like the Prehistoric Settlement, the Red Beach and the Lighthouse is yours to discover, as you begin your Santorini explorations from COCO-MAT Hotel Santorini.
On the southern end of Santorini, the village of Akrotiri encapsulates all the island’s history in one gorgeous location.

The excavations of Akrotiri, or else known as the Aegean’s Pompeii, is a must-see to get to know a highly advanced civilization, whereas the Kasteli and the Goulas (the watchtower) of Akrotiri show its medieval heritage, one brimming with culture and tradition. Beauty and history become one at Akrotiri, a village worth exploring every corner!
