If Santorini were famous for just one thing, then that would be the breath-taking sunset you can admire from the bedazzled cliffs of the caldera. Those who have been lucky enough to watch the Santorinian sunset swear by it… it is by far the most beautiful sunset in the world! And it can get even better; if the scenery is as enchanting as the sunset, then your experience can be twice as unforgettable! Let’s take a look at the best sunset spots in Santorini!
Just a few steps from Aressana Spa Hotel & Suites, the caldera of Fira beckons you to enjoy the last light of day as the sun dives beyond the horizon. Wandering around the narrow, whitewashed alleys throughout the day you are sure to find some spots that speak to you- keep them in your mind and make your way back to them come evening to make them your own best sunset spots in Santorini!
Moving on to the outskirts of Fira, the quaint district of Firostefani offers equally spectacular sunset viewing spots, away from the large touristic crowds that usually gather at Fira. The highest point of the caldera, Imerovigli would obviously be a top spot for admiring this natural spectacle, and Imerovigli’s utterly alluring ambience is bound to capture your heart. Close to Imerovigli, the imposing Skaros Rock offers a vantage point for watching the sunset, for those who wouldn’t mind some climbing to reach its top.
Of course, this account of the best sunset spots in Santorini couldn’t be without a mention to Oia. This traditional settlement at the northern end of Santorini is known for its quintessential Santorinian architecture but above all, as the best spot to watch the sunset!
Last, but not least, those who seek to enjoy the sunset immersed in serenity and beautiful natural sceneries, at the highest peak of Santorini, the Monastery of Profitis Ilias boasts awe-inspiring panoramic sea views, whereas the Lighthouse (Faros) at Akrotiri is also amazingly charming and secluded.
