Akrotiri is a rocky promontory on the northern side of the island of Crete, in the Sea of Crete.
It is roughly circular in shape, connected to the rest of the island by a wide causeway between Chania and the town of Souda.
To the south, Souda Bay is found between the peninsula and the island.
Most of the peninsula is a plateau somewhat elevated from the sea.
There is a string of hills along the northern coast.
A variety of flora occur on the rocky promontory of Akrotiri including the herb Taraxacum minimum.
The road network is quite extensive and in good condition, reaching all the villages and beaches of Akrotiri.
There is also a very frequent bus connection with Hania.
Akrotiri also has a few monasteries which are becoming popular with visitors: the impressive Agia Triada was founded in the beginning of the 17th century and was a prominent religious school until about 40 years ago.
