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
A must when you visit Santorini. Spectacular view. Kind of a tourist trap though with the sun beds and the boats leaving every 30 min or so going to the White Beach and Black Beach. This was the best amongst those three in my opinion. As was as swimming here it was so many rocks that it was quite uncomfortable to walk here if you don’t have swim shoes and the water wasn’t directly blue
Beautiful location. Terrible path with rocks and cliffs - definitely not for children and ealdely or disabled. Non existent facilities on the beach - there are some on the parking lot at 20 minutes rock climbing away.
Beautiful beach. Be prepared for a crowd. Fantastic snorkelling.
It's barely a real beach, sand is red for sure but I'm not really going to sit here and hang out and relax by the water. It's more a tourist attraction to see a red sanded 'beach' than it is to setup shop and relax on a beach kind of place.
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.
