High on History
Red Bеach is the most fаmоus beaсh οf Santorini and one оf the mοst сolоrful bеаches wοrldwide. It is a nаrrow strip оf reddish sand and pеbbles under high rеd cliffs аnd thus its name. The wеird colоr is due tο the iron-riсh rоcks fοrmеd as а result of the vоlcaniс еruptiοn. No dоubt it is a must-seе destinаtiοn which is worth seеing.

Top things to Do

Visit the Red Beach
In order to reach the Red Beach you have two options. The first is to follow the road towards the beach in Akrotiri, just after the archaeological site and from there take one of the boats that make the trip to the beach every half hour during the summer months. By sea, ie by boat, one can reach the Red from the beaches of Perissa and Kamari situated nearby. The second, more adventurous option is by taking the path. Aspiring hikers can get by car to the parking in Akrotiri, next to the church of Agios Nicholas, and from there continue on foot. The trail is short, if somewhat tedious as it goes both uphill and downhill, but it gives a unique opportunity to the hikers to admire the volcanic rocks up close and, of course, the impressive coast from above.
Food & Drinks
The local restaurants and taverns offer a wide range of typical dishes, so don’t miss the chance to try them. Greek cuisine is based on the healty Mediterranean one, but more enriched.
