The place is quiet far and remote and hardly any activity to do. In fact there is no beach there. You can skip this place for sure

It was a risky hike going up and down to reach the Red Beach. For me it was a nice first time visit but i do not think i would do it again. Nothing special about the beach except that it's red. We were in flip flops and shorts so hiking up and down to it wasn't really fun. Not... More

Is not easy to get here. There is a parking space, and then you have to get ready to walk. If you just come to see the beach, don't come with flip flops, as it won't be that safe, you have to walk up a small mountain and after some 5 minutes you will see the red view. If you... More

It is NOT EASY getting to this beach. You literally have to climb a small mountain to then descend to the beach. It is so worth it! The Aegean Sea is so cool. There is sea glass everywhere. The water is so refreshing. There is a vendor there that sell boiled, seasoned corn-on-cob and local beer. His father grows the... More

Don't miss checking out the red sand beach in Santorini. Hubby and I rented an ATV and drove out to spend a few hours on the beach. It's a little rocky getting down to the beach so plan for a little hike, but so worth it. The water is warm and amazing and it is so cool to see the... More

The view looking at the beach is stunning with its red sand and cliffs. There is a bit of a hike to the beach, not at all bad, but not practical to do barefoot. The beach itself was dirty and covered in some type of seaweed, which coated everything (towel, hat, skin) and was impossible to get off. Interesting place... More

The views are very impressive and it is a nice walk up and around to get to the beach. We got the bus from Fira to Akrotiri which was very easy! Even in October we could go in the sea and the beach wasn't too busy but the tide was in so there wasn't much space to sit! Waves can... More

The beach and water was not so clear when we visited, due to windy weather & waves, so we could not swim. But the landscape is just amazing!!! The red cliffs over the beach, the red pebbles and sand in a small bay make you staring for hours!!!

The Red Beach has red stones, guess that's how it got its name. The waters are really clear, pity it was winter or could have swam
