We came here at the end of a stormy day in October. The sun was out and we wanted to take a swim. Having parked by the church at the end of the road we started walking around the headland across a field of lava boulders and gravel. The rocks here are already red and quite dramatic. There is also a big sign in English and Greek saying ‘danger - do not enter’. Judging by the state of the rocks and the cliffs this path is an accident waiting to happen! There was also a big land slip directly onto the beach from the high cliffs above the narrow strip of black sand. As we were there, we took the risk and picked our way across the path to the beach - just before you descend to the sand the red wall of what looks like small pebbles stuck together with red cement towers over you. Alarmingly it has been undermined at its base and looks like it could collapse any moment (hence the warning signs!). Once on the beach it’s a fairly narrow strip of black sand and fortunately the day we were there, we had only three other people sitting in the beach. Also more than half the beach is Covered in rotting sea grass, meaning that there is only a very small stretch where you really want to sit. This section is right in front of what looks like a destroyed cafe that someone buried in to the cliff face, but which recently collapsed! The sea was fairly rough when we were here, which was fun - jumping the big breakers and watching others getting wiped out by the power of the waves. The best views of the beach are when you approach and leave. If I’m honest I found sitting on it a little concerning because it’s so narrow and you can’t really sit far enough away from the crumbly cliff face to properly relax.

Took the bus from Perissa here, and walked over and down to the beach instead of taking the boat transportation. The beach area itself is small and not that amazing, but the massive red cliff backdrop is very neat, and there was some good snorkelling off to the one end near the rocks. The short hike down to the beach over the rocks from the parking lot is easy. Yes there are signs saying the beach is closed because of falling rocks, but I found this notice in various other places I went throughout Greece, and all were still visited by many people...no issue.

This beach is worth the 5 mins walk from parking area to view the rocks but if you want to actually get onto the beach it's another 5 to 10 minutes of rocky scrambling. The beach didn't seem overcrowded but it wasn't deserted either. Parking is before you reach the pretty church of St Nikolaos.

For me the beach is stunning BUT only if looking from the platform down on it. Otherwise an ordinary beach full of tourists. The beach is just narrow line as some part of beach is close or barricaded due to landslides or falling stones. Water is full of seaweeds, still water is clean. At the far end there is tavern. The best way how to get to the beach is to take a rent ca or scooter as with public bus is not convenient.

We only saw Red Beach from our boat. We were told that people are banned from going there due to the landslides but we still saw people walking down to it. It's only a thin sliver of beach and not very attractive.
