Red Beach

This impressive beach is a real attraction of the island! The view of the red, almost vertical, volcanic rocks and the small, reddish pebbles will take your breath away. This volcanic scenery is dotted with umbrellas and the figures of visitors with colorful clothes and accessories, coming here to marvel at the wild landscape, take a swim, or rent a canoe or sea bicycle and enjoy the view from the water. It will not be necessary to bring any supplies with you, since there are small canteens. You may come on foot (10 minutes walk), or you can choose the boats leaving from Akrotiri beach, Kamari, Perissa.
