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

We hired a tour guide and this was one of the stops. It was impressive to see the truly red cliffs and the beach below. There is a small white church along a hill by the small parking area. It was impressive to see the white church against the hill with the large Greek flag flying. The area was very... More

The beach is a little bit of a walk or you can take the boat over. The beach is beautiful and rich in color. The water was crystal clear.

It's interesting surely, bit hard to get there, must be scheduled in the morning for sure! Then groups arrive and populate the beach sunbeds and soon becomes uncomfortable to stay anymore, the red cliffs are nice to view from the sea. I would not go there twice on the same holiday, but definitely nice to check out and explore.

You must be focused to get to the beach. The red cliffs are quite a site. If you have no desire to climb down to the beach, there are several souvenir shops and restaurants in the area.
