Greece Trip (Day 7) - Red Beach and Fira

On our final full day in Santorini we took the public bus from Oia to Fira to the Red Beach near Akrotiri. It was a really pretty beach, but the walk down was a bit treacherous. No gaurdrails, no stairs, barely a trail. Just over the hill, along the cliff and down to the beach.

On Santorini, because of the volcano, there are many different types of sand and rock. There is a red, black, and white beach.

We only made it to the one beach, but it was still fun. Not too many people that early in the morning and lots of pretty smooth stones along the beach.

We took the bus back to Fira where we walked around and shopped a bit more. The cruise ship people were out in full force, so we took refuge from the throngs of people in a restaurant.

We ordered a really fantastic meal and enjoyed the view down to the port.
