The Red Beach is located just 800m south of Matala famous resort, at location Moudia. To get here you have to walk a trail that begins north of the settlement of Matala and crosses the hill north of Matala.
After walking 15-25 minutes from Matala you will see the magnificent Red Beach from above. The view from the hill is great and is an ideal place for watching the sunset. Alternatively, if you do not want to hike, you can catch a boat from the Matala harbor.
The secluded beach is really beautiful, but is vulnerable to the western winds blowing frequently in the region.Characteristic of the coast, as implied by its name, is the reddish sand originating from the rocks of the region. The colors of the sea get a lovely blue-green color, making the landscape really beautiful.
