One thing Santorini is known for is its sunsets. Let’s be clear…the island has absolutely gorgeous sunsets! However, it’s also known for its beautiful coastline and water views. Last fall, I got an amazing opportunity tovisit Santoriniand we spent a gorgeous day on a catamaran sailing to beautiful points around the island. The excursion culminated in watching the sunset while out on the water! This isSantorini Sailing and Sunsets!
After boarding our catamaran, we were off on our adventure.
How could a day on the water, lying in the sun, visiting beautiful beaches, eating great food and ending with the sunset NOT be perfect??
Our first stop wasRed Beachfor swimming and snorkeling.
The water, the beach and the rock formations were very striking in color!
Our next stop was atWhite Beach for swimming and eating a traditional Greek meal of pork kabobs grilled right there on the catamaran! We also had shrimp, Greek salad and bread. Also included were both alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks. I couldn’t have asked for better, fresh food. It was phenomenal!
As we were leaving White Beach, I saw a heart in the rock formation. Do you see it?
Our third stop was at ahot springslocation where you could swim and take a mud bath.
It was a very interesting and quirky place!
As we were sailing to the spot where we would watch the sunset, we caught beautiful late-afternoon views of the island.
Our last stop of the adventure was the most perfect place to watch the sunset…
and it most definitely delivered! It was a very unique experience witnessing the sunset out on the water with interrupted views in Santorini!
This was the highlight of Santorini for me.Sunset Oiadefinitely knows how to do a catamaran excursion in a way that will have you wanting to do it again! This is exactly how I left…wanting to do it again! They even provided round-trip hotel transfers! If you are going to Santorini, put this on your itinerary! If you are going in later October like we did, you might want to bring a light jacket as the wind can get a little cool!
Here are the incredible Santorini sunsets we had for four out of our five days there!
On our first night, I admit, I took an insane amount of sunset photos. This one is from that iconic location with the blue domes!
Okay so I took several from that location, but the colors were always changing…
and becoming more vibrant.
Finally, the clouds cleared a bit more and revealed this!
