|About these ratings|
At the tail end of the road to Ancient Akrotiri, this beach earned its name from its reddish volcanic sand. Like Santorini's other beaches, this red one comes with all the trimmings (beachside cafes and tavernas); however, it is much less crowded than the more famous black-sand Kamari Beach.
Although the Red Beach is a great swimming spot, some report it's extremely difficult to get there. One TripAdvisor user says that the Red Beach is "[o]verrated and difficult to access. If you're going there I suggest you get there by boat." While its remote location means that you'll have a better chance at claiming some prime beach real estate, if you're not up for a hike, you may prefer to sun elsewhere.
