AddThis Social Bookmark Button

This impressive beach is a real attraction of the island! The view of the red, almost vertical, volcanic rocks and the small, reddish pebbles will take your breath away.
Take your camera and get ready, because one does not meet such landscapes every day. Although Santorini offers many such sites, the Red Beach is something extraordinary beautiful. Very close to the archaeological site of Akrotiri and about 8km from Fira, lies this unique beach. One has access by car until to a point (parking available) combined with walking (ascending & descending, but it’s worth it) or by boat from Akrotiri, kamari and Perissa.
