If you visit Santorini (Σαντορίνη) and want a different beach experience you should definitely visit Red Beach (Κόκκινη Άμμος) in Akrotiri. Contrast colors are its main characteristics. The bright turquoise of the sea and the red volcanic cliff next to each other bring wonderful and breathtaking views. We believe that this beach is the most impressive beach in Santorini.
According to Travelchannel.com Best Beach Awards 2015: “Named the “No. 1 most spectacular getaway on Earth” on Travel Channel’s 101 Sand n’ Surf Hotspots, Santorini’s Red Beach is also the Best Unusual Beach, thanks to its striking crimson and black volcanic sands. “Set off by the deep indigo waters, there’s really nothing like it,” says Sara Gilliam, senior producer for TravelChannel.com. “To do Santorini justice, check in to a chalky cave house built into the lip of the volcanic crater and catch an unrivaled sunset over the whitewashed buildings and blue-domed churches.”
