Red Beach

Red Beach

If you dream of a beach that touches perfection, we can give you its name: Red Beach!

One of the most picturesque and isolated beaches of the area, which you can reach within a 20 minutes walk from Matala. Along the route you will find other caves, some of which are inhabited in the summer, you will walk on the remnants of ancient civilization and the fossils.

The beach is characterized by the red color of the sand and its magnificent crystal clear waters. Enjoy the combination of the endless blue of the sky & the sea. 

South of Matala lies the beautiful Red Beach (Kokkini Ammo).  About half an hour you have to walk through the valley behind the hotels. Then you climb between holes and washed-out rocks up a slope (solid hiking boots are recommended here). From up there you can see an imposing picture - the southern rocky coast and below it the reddish shining sand of Red Beach.
