Santorini is well known for being one of the top places to visit before you die and for good reason. Not only does the island offer something different due to it being a volcano, the views across the caldera and overall beauty of Santorini are difficult for other locations in the world to compete with.
There are of course a seemingly endless list of things to do in Santorini however one of the top activities is to watch the sunset so during our last visit we decided to do exactly that.
The sunset in Santorini is one of the biggest draws in an evening to the cliff top town of Oia so if you are planning to head this way expect things to get busy at that time. The restaurants that face out across the caldera will more than likely be fully booked and the rooftops and balcony hotels will be full of people either looking for that perfect romantic moment to propose or to take a photo to remember the island by.
During our last visit we decided to do something a little different to enjoy this natural spectacle by getting on a boat and enjoy the sunset from the calm waters around the caldera.
This does of course come at extra cost however it creates a really special and unique experience with memories that will last a lifetime.
If you are looking to experience the sunset in Santorini, Greece you can of course see it from anywhere on the island however if you are looking for something a little more special and romantic, book yourself onto a sunset boat trip. You won’t regret it.
