Extremely beautiful to watch from a distance, but please observe: Since the landslide in 2013 it is FORBIDDEN to visit the beach, due to the risk of more landslides. The latest big landslide was in april 2018, and the beach has been closed since 2013!...More

We went in May and it wasn't super crowded. It's pretty, the cliff sides are red, the sand is reddish, but my favorite part was the weird, padlocked, white door on the side of the cliff. My husband and I rode a scooter to get...More

Granted it wasn't sunny, but please this was not the prettiest of sights. I don't think the sun shining would have made any difference. Santorini isn't a beach destination, it's a unique volcanic island. If going on a boat trip.. the best bit will be...More

Difficult to access without sport shoes. We have seen people falling on the rock. The available beach is very small due to risk of falling rocks. Very popular place for tourists. Overestimated beach but the view is still beautiful.

We read and heard so much about Red Beach being one of the best and most beautiful beaches on Santorini we thought we should make an effort to see it. We took the public bus from Fira to Akrotiri about 1/2 hour, 2 euros, then...More

The local bus from Fira (2 Euro each) dropped us about 10 mins walk from the beach - it's a pleasant walk this time of year but I would not be keen in the middle of summer. The path is slippery and rocky so don't...More

This is going to be the best beach in Santorini. It's possible that it's crowed but the view is worth

Much better is by boat . It is posible by buss alsso , but all bus goes to Fira first , so you have a long drive , and long walking to the booth beach from bus station.

If you have mobility issues, you may have a hard time seeing the beach from above also. It was a walk out to it on uneven pathways.

its just 5-10 mins walk down the hill. You can definately do it with sandals or flip flops but you will be more confortable with sneekers.
