10 Best places to see Santorini sunset
1) Oia village. This village is a few km from Fira. Its sunset is very famous in the world. The beauty of this village with white houses lies in a spectacular location on a cliff, at the edge of the breathtaking Caldera. Have you ever seen a color palette? Well, Oia is just that: a palette in shades of colors. The sunset enhances its beauty.
2) Skaros Rock at Imerovigli. The ruins of the Venetian castle Skaros are another good spot for sunset. Skaros was a fortress originally known as “Epano Kastro”. During a 19th-century earthquake the castle was destroyed and today there are only ruins. Here the landscape is incredible. At sunset, the castle looks like a dark fortress illuminated by the red light of the sunset of Santorini. Near the rock there is also the lovely little Chapel of Theoskepasti, facing the Caldera.
3) Fira. It is the capital of Santorini full of life. One of the best places to watch the sunset is in front of the Orthodox Cathedral.
4) The Akrotiri lighthouse. I love the lighthouses, because I love the whole atmosphere around these buildings. This lighthouse has something unique in its kind. It is located at south of the island and in 1892 it was renovated by a French trading company.
5) On a sunset cruise. Many boat excursions are organized in Santorini. This is another way to enjoy the sunset from the sea! The tour ends with the Oia sunset at the centre of sea. I chose the excursion by the typical boat Albatross, leaving from the port of Athinios at a cost of about €38 per person.
6) Franco’s Cafè – Bar. Kasteli, Castelli, Pyrgos. A very nice bar in Pyrgos, where you can enjoy the sunset accompanied by a classical music. Try to go at least an hour before sunset to make sure to sit down in the firsts row. I unfortunately did not succeed, but the experience is equally unique.
7) Santo Wines Winery. Enjoy a wonderful sunset drinking a good wine (or more than one) and eating many types of cheese. Santo Wines Winery is a must for wines lovers and sunset makes this moent really magical! You can also taste different cheeses.
8) Cafè del mar in Fira. Do not to confuse it with the Café del mar e sol (which is in the beach of Perivolos). I recommend this place especially to the young and posh people. The Caldera view is stunning. The price of coktails is expensive (€14), but the bar is really nice. I chose a coke.
9) Apartments, Villas and Studios. Do you love your privacy? Enjoy the sunset from a Studio or Villa. There are a lot of studios, depending on your budget. Just make sure to choose the room where you can really enjoy the sunset from.
10) Santorini’s alleys. Narrow alleys with typical restaurants and bars, hidden spots, windmills and white houses who change their own colors at sunset, but all of them look at the Caldera.
