Although not nearly as famous as the gorgeous sunsets of Santorini, Kokkini Beach is another beautiful sight worth seeing on the island. Popularly known as Red Beach, its sand is made up of pulverized volcanic rock from the Santorini caldera, giving it its color. Landslides have been known to occur in the area, however, so caution is always advised.
