    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.

    One of the most unique beaches I've ever been too. Crystal clear water.

    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!

    Nice for a short hike and picture taking, but too much seaweed for my swimming taste.

    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.

    Great beach for pics, but not so good to swim. Rocks as you enter the sea, plenty of seaweeds all over the place, no shower!

    It's an impressive beach to visit for first timers but not recommended to stay for swimming.

    One of the three unique beaches. Reachable by boat or hiking.

    Probably the best beach of Santorini. Too crowded though. Worth the visit.

    Don't be afraid! People exaggerates the difficulty of arriving. If you remember to bring your sneakers to walk the unfriendly road just x 10 minutes, nothingto worry Read my full guide of Santorini!

    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 😁

    Small hike over the hill to get to this gorgeously brick red 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.

    It looks great but the sand isn't so great when you're down there and there isn't much room

    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.

    The view is great but i can not tell the same for the sea water. İt is not clean. Black beach is the best according to others.

    The red rock formations are quite unique. Getting there does involve some walking with a bit of a rough terrain towards the end, but it's worth it. Read more

    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.

    It's a great beach but not so relaxing, there are a lot of seaweed and it's very noisy! Take the boat for the White Beach!

    Not so good as was expected. A bit dirty and crowdy, other beaches of Santorini are much better. But it's interesting to see this red rocks)

    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.

    Bring a spare pair of sandals for the beach but wear walking shoes. The walk is fairly rocky.

    Visit the red beach (kokkini), which offers a spectacular view from its top. Kokkini in Greek means red and on this beach everything is a stunning crimson colour Read more

    Not so comfortable. Interesting to see, but you can also skip it. Good to combine it with visiting Akrotiri excavations.

    Beautiful beach, well known for the unique colour of the sand and the hill behind it. http://www.travel-to-santorini.com/place.php?place_id=30

    Don't come to Santorini for the beaches. That said, this is a nice little photo op.
