Best way to see the Red Beach, White Beach, and/or Black Beach use the 5 Eu round trip Boat Taxis from the beach near the archaeological site Akrotiri. If you like archaeology and mega structures, see that first. Either way park on the street for free or in the pay lot where it is 4 Eu for car. Walk to the water then turn right and look for the small pier with the Boat Taxis. They will take you to the sand on the Red Beach and Black Beach, for the White Beach you will need to jump into the water from the boat. Suggest rock booties for nearly all beaches in Santorini. So many people park their cars and then walk forever to the Red Beach, that is not necessary. The boats go every 15 minutes until around 6pm. You don't have to get off the boat, you can just use it for a photo op and round trip boat ride. Enjoy!!

After a small hike from the parking lot, you arrive at a beach that apparently is supposed to be red. The cliff above the beach was very much red, however the beach itself was more black than red. We found no reason to stay at the beach and the water did not look very inviting. It might be worth a visit after seeing the Akrotiri Archaeological Site, since it is close by, however I still wouldn't recommend it.

No sand to speak of, but lots of polished stones and rocky outcrops. Stunning water and long vistas. Worth the hike, but be sure to do more while in the Akrotiri area.

This is an amazing volcanic beach.
It has to be seen, but it is very crowded. Some people are coming by boat, but the easiest is by feet. Just a little bit difficult to find a place to park.

We drove by quad bike to the Red Beach, this was a let down . We had read so much about it but was very disappointed. It's a walk to get there from the car park. There was a man playing a music half way there which was a pleasant surprise. There are no lounges and not a good beach to lie and tan. You need to take your own water and food if you plan on staying for a while. The view is awesome but I would rather discover Parrissa Beach and definitely Kamari Beach rather.
