Red Beach - Review

The Sunning Red Beach near Akrotiri is a lovely tourist attraction. Tourists certainly swear by it and it is one of the most picturesque and dramatic locations in the Santorini area.

The sharp red stone cliffs in the background give the beach both its name and its popularity. Travelers find this lovely beach a haven of refuge in the hot Greek summer. The Green Mediterranean water stands in sharp and stunning contrast with the cliffs and a real eyeful.

The place is great for an early morning stroll, a lazy afternoon or a tranquil evening. You need to walk a bit to reach the place but it is certainly worth the effort for the amazing views.

Red Beach, Santorini Reviews

  • The beach is a little difficult to approach however is much better than Kamari beach. The beach is little rocky but the water is clear and easy to swim. A beach towel is an absolute necessity. The one disadvantage is that there is absolutely no shade available.

  • The place is beautiful, the red stone wall makes contrast with the water, forming a nice view. However it’s really hard to reach by walking. The only way to reach it is by boat.

  • So beautiful and wild! Some people like it,some others dont!Make sure you were proper shoes because there are many spots where the ground isnt flat.

  • Almost no shadey areas and it's all rocks so not very comfortable.

  • Although it's pretty it's been spoiled by crowds. This is the sort of location that would be nice if it were secluded. The walk to access the beach is a bit tricky, however, there is the option of getting a boat taxi if you prefer. There are only a very limited number of sun loungers with umbrellas and very little shade; my friends and I sat as close to the cliffs as possible to get shade, as did many other people. The beach is rocky so not comfortable to lie on a towel on the floor. I wouldn't recommend bringing young children to this beach, because of the difficulty accessing it and lack of shade. There are a few stalls selling basic food (sandwiches, smoothies, etc) just before the walk to the beach.
