    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

    Очень красивый пляж и виды, обязательно нужно посетить. Правда учтите, что душа на пляже нет)

    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.

    Αναμφίβολα η ωραιότερη παραλία του νησιού...κόκκινοι βράχοι, μαύρη άμμος...τοπίο ηφαιστειογενές...δίπλα στα αρχαία στο Ακρωτήρι...

    Linda praia! Diferente de tudo! Chama praia vermelha porque fica na encosta do vulcão onde as pedras são vermelhas. Dá pra ir de carro até pertinho e descer a pé ou ir de barco. A mais bonita!

    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 contrast of red and blue at its best. This beach's volcanic red rocks engulf deep blue waters offering a peaceful setting for swimming and sunbathing in privacy. Read more

    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

    A bit of a treacherous hike to get to, but quite lovely once you do.

    Visit this beach for its exquisite colour. Take a boat for the White beach too! Read more

    Parasols and sun beds are scarcely found here, and you can get some basic supplies

    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)

    Molto suggestiva e unica ma troppo troppo turistica e piena. Odioso l'andirivieni di barche a motore per escursioni ad altre spiaggie tra i bagnanti.

    Gloria Buratti · July 27, 2013
  • Hanz

    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.

    Hanz · July 23, 2013
  • Nicola P.

    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

    Plage magnifique de galets rouges. La mer en elle même n'est pas très agréable et trouble. Marchez 10 minutes le long de la côte et vous arriverez à une plage plus agréable et moins bondée.

    Vista bonita, pero muy llena de gente, calurosa y no muy limpia.

    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

    Merita. Va vista. Ma basta mezza giornata perché è un carnaio. Ombrellone e due sdraio 7 euro.

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

    Het rode strand in het zuiden van Santorini. De rotsen zijn rood/bruinachtig en het strand donker van kleur.

    It is supposed to be one of the best in santorini,.. But it is one of the worst in Cyclades!!!

    If you walk far enough along the black beach you'll find beautiful rock formations and secluded areas - ideal for full tanning.

    Devon B · September 11, 2011
  • Tim J.

    This beach is surrounded by towering red rock cliffs. Check out the doorways that go straight into the cliff!Pro Tip: take a boat from Red Beach to White Beach

    Crowded unexceptional tourist trap - Best viewed by kayak and then passed by...

    Not worth the trip! Crowded with Italians, no wind and the water blurry! There are better places than this!

    Bike or a quad is a must or a smart car. Parking is a nightmare. Park 800m away and just walk..
