This beach is a must see. The overhanging cliffs of red porous rocks over the startling white church, the blue sea and skies.

Its a beach... and its a little red. Not worth the effort in my opinion. The Red Beach is a short(ish) walk from the Akrotiri Archaeological Site (this is definitely worth a visit) but unless your killing time before your bus don't bother.

Unique beach, a must see while on the island. Recommend wearing shoes or flip flops as the beach is rocky.

The experience was fairly average. This is more of a site rather than a place to relax under the sun. Of course there are some portions where the sand appears red.

While we didnt bathe on the beach, I would be very careful about potential rock falls if on the beach. Be safe and enjoy! really worth the visit and look out for the fruits sellers

It’s a small beach but very very beautiful. Certainly one of the wonders of the world that were created.

We hiked down to see the Red Beach. It's beautiful and the red sand and cliffs are stunning. It is a hike to it for sure. If you are down that way, worth a stop to go see it in person.

Much better is by boat . It is posible by buss alsso , but all bus goes to Fira first , so you have a long drive , and long walking to the booth beach from bus station.

If you have mobility issues, you may have a hard time seeing the beach from above also. It was a walk out to it on uneven pathways.

its just 5-10 mins walk down the hill. You can definately do it with sandals or flip flops but you will be more confortable with sneekers.
