Let’s see what is the best place for sunset in Santorini
If you’re someone who hasn’t seen enough sunsets, then you should definitely visit Santorini for this reason alone: to see the most beautiful sunset in the world.
Santorini will show you its secret weapon! He will take you by the hand and lead you to Oia, a few moments before sunset, and there he will leave you to admire the vast horizon that stretches out in front of you with a fiery red sun somewhere deep in the Aegean! The sea loses its blue color and becomes reddish, like the volcanic lava that created Santorini!
There are days when the streets of Oia are filled with visitors from all over the world, who flock to see this unique sight of the Santorini sunset. The ruins of the castle of Agios Nikolaos, the churches and the roofs are their usual destination, as everyone is looking for the place that will help them enjoy the unique sight and the dream-like atmosphere.
The unique combinations of colors as the sun sinks into the blue Aegean create a romantic setting that touches every visitor.
Oia is located in the northern part of the island, at a distance of 11 kilometers from Fira. It is famous for its sunset. Oia was one of the five castles of Santorini (the castle of Agios Nikolaos). The settlement reached its peak in the late 19th and early 20th centuries thanks to shipping, transit trade and agriculture.
Oia offers countless spots to enjoy the colors of the sunset, corners with much less people and 100% magnificent views! Claim your seat!
Lighthouse at Akrotiri
Enjoy the famous sunset from the lighthouse in Akrotiri! The view is unique and you can see the whole island and Oia in the background as the sun dips into the sea! The crowd is much less than in Oia.
The lighthouse at Akrotiri is one of the most beautiful in the Cyclades. It was built in 1892 by the French Lighthouse Society. The height of the tower is 10 meters. Renovated in 1925, it ceased operation during World War II and resumed operation in 1945. It was electrified in 1983 and automated in 1988.
At the highest point of the caldera, Imerovigli has stood since the Byzantine years, gazing at the impressive volcano from a height of about 300 meters from the sea. Today it is one of the most developed tourist spots in Santorini, with high-quality hotels, restaurants and other shops, which welcome tens of thousands of visitors from all over the world every year.
The view of the sunset from Imerovigli is unique and many recommend the village for romantic holidays. A special place for the village is the Castle of Skaros, the old Kasteli which for several centuries was the capital of the island.
One of the largest villages of Santorini, Pyrgos is built in the southern part of the island, at the foot of Prophet Ilias and at a distance of 10 kilometers from Fira. The view from the village to the whole of Santorini is magnificent, while the old castle, which is preserved to this day in very good condition, is uniquely decorated on the night of Good Friday, during the procession of the Epitaph. Inside and outside the castle of Pyrgos there are a total of about 48 churches and chapels.
