The beach was fine, clear waters but very stoned. Very crowded and step walk down (saw someone do it with a pram, very impressive). It's fine. But I wouldn't go back. Ticked off my list.

P.S. I thought it would be redder..?

Went over there by boat from Akrotiri, did not go down for a swim. As first there is no quay to get off the boat, but you have to wade ashore. And secondly, very crowded and no sand, just pebbles. We are from Malta, and it simply does not come close to our beaches. We enjoyed the half an hour boat trip at 5 euros/person as you get to see red beach, white beach and black beach. One can also access this beach from a pathway from Akrotiri bay, but not any easy walk for the elderly.

So and so! Beautiful view! You have to walk little bit about 10-15 minutes! You must carry umbrella , water and other supplies! Clear waters the beach was little bit dirty from sea plants!
It is ok if you compare to the other beach in santorini!!

Complete waste of time. Much better beaches to visit with better amenities.

Most people stay for an hour and leave.

Go to perissa beach or chill on the bean bags at Yalos restaurant.

What a trek here!! Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, take food, drink and water shoes. This is a very nice spot, however other people know about it too, so expect loads of people here and boats docking here to drop off passengers. For 5 EUR one way you can visit White and Black beach from here.
