Red Beach

Ultimate guide (October 2018)
Red Beach is a beach with red pebbles in Santorini island of Greece. It is often praised as the best beach on the island, but in reality it's rather depressing place with crowds of tourists. We may recommend it only to those, who doesn't like sandy beaches. In addition it is dangerous here, as there is a real chance of falling stones from the surrounding cliffs. Shore and seabed: pebbles, stones. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

The nearest to the Red beach hotels are located in Akrotiri village. Rooms' fares are even more expensive, than in high-end resorts of the Maldives. So if you've got a lot of easy money, you are welcome. In others cases it would be better to find a hotel in another part of the island.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Santorini international airport (JTR). Next take a bus or hire a taxi.

You'll have to walk from parking to the beach about 200 meters. The pathway goes via the mountains. It's not very difficult, but it may be hard for children.

When to go [edit]

The best time to travel to Santorini island is a warm summer half of the year. Swimming is perfect in August, as sea water is warmest that time.
