"Red Beach. This comes up a winner on several fronts: it is quiet, has a tavern, and is covered with red-hued sands (have your Nikon handy). On southwest shore below Akrotiri."
Here's what it should say:
"Red Beach. Popular as the closest beach to Fira, but small, and the entry into the water is difficult for most of its length because of the rocks along the shore. A primitive WC, but no other faciltiies (no taverna). Accessible by a tricky path over the rocks from the end of the road or by a shuttle boat from the pier near the last bus stop in Akrotiri (which also goes to White Beach, the next bay over, otherwise accessible by an even more difficult path)."
And for Ancient Thria:
"To get here, hike up from Perissa or Kamari or take a taxi up Mesa Vouna"
Where is Mesa Vouna? There is no other reference to it, and it is not in the index. And doesn't this imply that one can take a taxi from Perissa? That would be a bad idea, because it would involve a long drive to Kamari first. Here's what it should say:
"On Mesa Vouna, the large rocky promontory that separates Kamari from Perissa. The entrance to the site is accessible by a long, steep footpath from either Kamari or Perissa, or you can drive up the switchback road from the Kamari side. If you don't have a car, ATVs are available for rent in Kamari. There is also an hourly minivan shuttle (10 euros); look for the shuttle office at either the first bus stop in Kamari (by Mamma Mia's restaurant) or by the terminus near the boardwalk. From the entrance, there is another 200-300 foot climb to the highest point on the site."
I also got the impression that the hotel recommendations were based more on the hotel's advertising brochures than on actual inspections, but that may be wrong.
