The peninsula of Akrotiri, east of Chania has its charms and its horrors. Amongst the charms of Akrotiri are the wild range of hills which run along the northern edge of it, its monasteries (especially Katholiko), several pretty beaches (which are unfortunately a little overrun by the inhabitants of Chania at the weekend) and lots of flowers in the spring. On the ugly side, Akrotiri is home to a number of NATO bases and restricted military areas and subjected to some aircraft noise.
