The sunset of Santorini is annually included in the lists of the “top 10 best sunsets in the world”.  But which is the element that makes the sunset in the island so special;

As the sun falls into the Aegean Sea from the northern tip of the island, the horizon creates so many colors that no one could imagine. The colors change from deep red to yellow, orange and purple as the sun sinks in the Aegean Sea, reflecting the light to the sea and the surrounding islands. The sunset is therefore unique because of the unique color palette you are able see.


The best places in Santorini to watch sunset:

You will enjoy the sunset from Fira, Firostefani and Imerovigli, from the Lighthouse at Akrotiri, from the Prophet Elijah (Tower) or Vlihada beach with the volcanic landscape changing colors as the sun sets.
