Santorini sunset is one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve ever seen. Take it from me – as someone who is a sunset whore. Every city I’ve visited, I’ve always steered myself where the sun goes down. There is always something about sunsets that draws me to it. Sunsets are not just amazing, but also hypnotizing.
Below are sunset photos I took from Fira only. Oia is another town where can watch the golden sunset with the rest of the visitors. I’ll post some (or many) of them in my future blog entry.
Bring out your Ray-ban sunglasses and enjoy the Santorini sunset!
So, when in Santorini, where do you watch the sunset?
You can do it anywhere – but on one side of the island, overlooking the sea.
Most of the restaurants, hotels, residences, and bars are on the rugged cliff.
Business owners sell sunset views, from their windows to their patios and infinity pools.
Don’t worry if you can’t afford to be sitting in one of these overpriced places.
tand anywhere on narrow alleys to enjoy the sunset for free.
Like these people here.
Or more like me. 😉
Do not stay in a place where it is too crowded for you.
On our first afternoon, we joined the crowd because we thought that was the only spot to watch the sunset. We were so wrong.
After sundown, a friend and I walked the rest of the path and we found out that there are places where we should have been.
Find your perfect spot by walking further, away from the maddening crowd.
Even in summer, the most touristy time of the year, you can still find a place on your own.
Splurge and indulge in luxury if you can afford it! 😀
Go on a Santorini sunset cruise!
Or get a table for one. 😉
When the sun is finally gone, the island still looks like a day.
Discover some unique gems the island is hiding by taking your time to go around.
Fira becomes another magical place you won’t recognize when the night falls.
Do you think Fira is beautiful during the day or at sunset? Wait until the lights start to show.
It is more bewitching!
Hostel in Santorini – Where to Stay
Santorini has two hostels but they’re located far from Fira and Oia – where you’ll see those postcard-perfect white houses that captivated your senses. We stayed at Santa Irini Hotel in Perissa, 5 minutes walk to the Black Beach. The hotel has its own swimming pool surrounded by red bougainvilleas. I would definitely recommend this boutique hotel because of its kind staff, close proximity to the bus stop, grocery stores, and restaurants. And they’re gay-friendly, too!
