The Red Beach

I’ve decided to share only one image of the Red Beach, because although it is one of the more famous natural landmarks on Santorini, it is also very dangerous…….and so we only viewed it briefly from the cliffs to the side of the beach from a relatively safe distance.

We were told by a couple of locals that the beach itself used to be much bigger, but over the last few years a series of landslides have eroded the cliff face and reduced the size considerably. It is for this reason that we were advised not to go down on to the beach itself, a warning that we were only too willing to accept……..unlike some other idiots that you can just about make out in the picture below.
