We got the bus from Fira to the red beach, the walk from the bus stop was short and easy. The beach was rocky, but the cliff next to it made it very unique. The water was very salty so floating was very fun. We...More

Someone should visit this beach for its unique colour. Although there is some difficulty in approching the beach, it is worth it. The water is clear and the overall setting very nice

It is more like a trek to reach to the red beach. It is relatively a small beach and only speciality is red colour mountain of lava and volcanic eruptions. A very current place. Great to see what nature can do and how the entire...More

The approach is by a rocky path. The beach itself was very crowded but I think sunbathing below the cliffs is a risky business due to possible rockfall. I feel that the authorities need to have a think about cordoning this beach off completely. Looking...More

Though the approach is not easy but it is worth the effort. It is a small beach that gets crowded as the day approaches. Therefore early visit is recommended. The elderly May give it a miss as the climb is not too difficult but requires...More

It was fine, but it is rocky or pebbly gravel, has a lot of people and really doesn't offer a very enjoyable beach experience. I guess it is worth seeing the red colored beach, but I would not suggest staying there to swim

Walked up to view the red cliffs, expecting to see red sand, very crowded limited parking. You have to go up a small rocky path to get down to the small area of beach below the red cliffs.

Make sure you wear sturdy footwear for walking over the rocks to get there. It’s a small beach so was quite busy and cramped

I love a beach, but I found this one disappointing. Yes it’s in a dramatic location but it’s not easy to get to and it’s simply not a beach I would enjoy lying in for the day. People generally just walk up to the cliff...More

Hordes of people may the trek to Red Beach, a beach earning its names from the red cliffs surround the beach. The beach itself is pretty narrow and there a limited number of chairs and umbrellas for rent at the end. We believe there are...More
