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 sandy strip comes with all the trimmings (beachside cafes and tavernas); however, it is much less crowded than the more famous black-sand Kamari Beach. Travelers say the scenery is stunning — be sure to bring a camera to take photos of the stark contrast between the brick red cliffs and the aquamarine water.

Although the Red Beach is a great swimming spot, some report it can be difficult to get there. 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.

You'll find the Red Beach just south of Akrotiri and you can get there on foot, via bus or by car. For more information about Red Beach, check out its website.
