Santorini- sight seeing!

As we explore the island let me give you a little inside tip. Fira is the capital of Santorini, but it's full of tourists and cruise ship people, but it's full of great shopping. We'll go for a little shopping trip there later.

I'd rather spend some time showing you Red Beach. So here we are!






RED BEACH
Red beach in the Akrotiri area. Beautiful beach, well known for the unique color of the sand and the hill behind it. Soaring red lava cliffs which drop right to the sandy shore and into the clear blue sea, make for a majestic setting! We got here on foot, but the beach can be reached either by boat (there are several connecting Red Beach with Perissa and Akrotiri or by foot (10 minutes walk from Akrotiri.


I love how they have umbrellas and chairs for rent at the beach! There's a little snack bar in the cave behind us!!!




Lunch will be Greek salads and fabulous food at one of my favorite haunts!

I may never leave the beach, unless of course, there is feta cheese and olives involved!!! This is the best break ever!!!
