Red Beach - (Kokkini)
Welcome to the most famous beach of Santorini!! The red beach is the beach that will be reccomended to you by everyone. Red beach is located in Akrotiri, very near to the excavation site of the prehistoric city of Akrotiri, one of the most importand archeological sites in europe ! Almost everyone that visits Santorini will come to this place at least once. You can drive with your Santorini rental car untill the end of the road, and then you have to walk down the path that leads down to the beach. Hugh red rocks are all around, and the beach itself is full of tiny red stones. Even if we never suggested this amazing beach, everyone else will when you arrive !!
Kamari beach is a very famous and cosmopolitan beach with black sand. Many hotels, villas, restaurants, caffes, bars and shops of all kind are here to make your vacation easy. The road along the beach of Kamari is not open to vehicles, so you can enjoy long walks along the beach. Kamari is a very nice place to relax and enjoy the sea. Since carsw are not allowed to enter the beach road, if you rent a car, you have to park it in one of the many free parking places very near the water. From Kamari there is a road that goes up to Ancient Thira, the ruins of an ancient city at the top of the mountain near Kamari . Our advise is not to try and drive up there with your rental car, but take a minibus or walk up, since the road is neary narrow and scary!!
