We got to the beach by car, driving from Fira. Parked and had a little hike up then seeing we are over a cliff overseeing the red beach. There wasn't any trails or anything to hold on, and we hiked back down on our own. I wouldn't recommend older people or those who have knees or foot problems to do... More

Stay at the top and take pictures. The sites not safe and has a flimsy roped off area which will not protect you if there's an avalanche.

The walk down to the beach is very tricky and a bit dangerous as times as the rocks underneath your feet are very unsteady and one can easily slip. However the beach is very nice, the beach is made up of fine red volcanic rocks ... Careful as they tend to be scorching hot when the sun starts to get... More

This was a stunning beach, unlike anything else we've seen. Red sand and cliffs and deep blue water make for spectacular pictures. However, access involves a stony climb which could be hard for older or disabled beach goers: there's no sign anywhere warning you of that. It is less commercialized than other beaches, but it was pretty crowded and not... More

Very beautiful spot but DO NOT turn your back to the cliff. On 16th July I was standing at the bottom of the cliff taking photograph when some large stones started to roll down (look closely at the photograph I took). Luckily it was spotted very early so people who were sunbathing in this area were alerted and no one... More

Nice beach with good background the red cliffs. Has some sunbeds (8€ per set) and a mini market in one end for coffee on the go and some snacks. There is a boat every 30 min to take you (for 5€) to the white and to the black beach.

Less developed than Kamari or Perissa, this was a neat beach. We liked the little hike along the cliffs to get there, but there werent any umbrellas or chairs available by the time we got there.

Spectacular to look at. Small cove. Red cliffs. A real arduous walk up and down the edge of cliff - beach of course is very pebbly and not really worth the visit - tho we did get into the water to cool off after the 1/2 hourish walk. Not a place to relax in. We visited because of our trip... More
