    Nature and water is absolutely great! No need to scare to much from the path. There are not enough parasols but understandable for such a natural beach.

    Worth to visit while in the area. Beautiful colours, great water. Could be busy turning the day can take a boat from the to the white and black beach !

    Narrow sand area (between water/cliff) so get there early to get a spot. The boats that come into the bay cause freak tidal waves.. So listen to Yaya when she is telling you to move back!

    Ordinarily overcrowded, prices for sunbeds are crazy we we charged 15 for 2 sunbeds and 1 umbrella. Not sure that the price is the same for all :) no facilities - shower and toilet.

    Naturally created from volcanic eruptions a long time ago! The water is ice cold and the sand is mostly black & red pebbles. You need to park your vehicle and then follow a trail leading to the beach.

    To all those who say it's difficult to come here , see attached photo. 3 and a half minutes walk with flip flops and photo stop. Beach is average at best but unique due to the red-ish coloured sand

    The beach is beautiful, but the people in charge of the sun beds charge us more then local people. We paid 10 Euro and they paided 5 euro. The toilets were terrible!

    In the south of the island. 20min away from Fira by car. One of the most interesting touristic and myst-see attractions, with red rocks, no sand, very clear sea water. It is safe to swim.

    Isolated, yet organized and bustling with beach goers, this rocky red-colored paradise is a must see. Getting there isn't for the feint of heart though. The best option is to arrive there by boat. Read more

    It's pretty to look at, difficult to get to, though and when it's windy you get all muddy and full of seaweeds and generally... Just go for the photos. Then leave and go back to the black beach 😁

    Here's the deal: take a few photos and go swim somewhere else. The water is awful and full of seaweed. It's just the scenery that counts.

    View on the beach is nice, but beach is small, with pebble stones and water is not clear. Not a great spot compared to other beaches.

    Forget about the car park on the east side which is 800m away. There is a another one on the west side. It is right at the beach.

    Take bus to Akrotiri and hike to the beach (some rock climbing) but its not bad. Then get to the black and white beach by ferry for 5 euros. Skip the beach sailing "tours" and go on your own time.

    Nice but it's quite crowded & the water gets deep close to the shore. Better wear swim shoes when going here, as the pebbles might hurt. The red rock formation were pretty, but that's just it.

    You can get a boat to the white beach from here be warned that when you arrive at white beach you will need to enter deep water, so protect your electronic devices really well.

    Araçla geldikten sonra yaklaşık 10 dk yürüyorsunuz. Yürüyüş yolu zorlu bir yol, plaj terlikleri ile yürümekte zorlanabilirsiniz. Denize de deniz ayakkabıları ile girmenizi tavsiye ederim.

    Kumsal taşlı ve uçurumdan taşların düşmesi ihtimaline karşın iple set çekilmiş. Denizin dibi de taşlı ve hemen derinleşiyor. Kumsaldan volkanik taşlardan hatıra alabilirsiniz.
  • Ümran Ö.
    Santorini'de siyah, kırmızı ve beyaz volkanik sahiller bulunuyor. Her birine ulaşım meşakatli. Konforlu bir kumsal ve deniz beklemeyin ama farklı bir deneyim.

    Kızıl taşların plaja ve deniz karışması ile oluşan bir kumsal. Tepenin üzerinden yürüyerek ulaşılıyor. Kumsaldaki volkanik taşlardan toplayabilir ve evinizde dekor olarak kullanabilirsiniz.

    Perivolostan çıkıp adanın en güney ucuna doğru akrotiri yönünde ilerlediğinizde bir yol ayrımına ulaşırsınız. Yollardan biri Red Beach adlı kızıl kumsala diğeri de tarihi yerleşimlere gitmektedir.

    Говнище-то какое! Красная гора родила не просто мышь, а морскую свинью подложила. Дорога сюда опасна, горы сыплются, пляж маленький, грязный и многолюдный. Don't come here - this place ain't worth.
