675. Day 24 and 25 | Sunsets in Oia

In my last post, I left off when we arrived in Oia after a few-hours-long hike over from Imerovigli. We arrived just minutes before the sunset so we weren't able to properly find a good spot to watch it.
Oia is quite different from Thira and Imerovigli. The streets here are lined with luxury boutiques and seems to be a better place for shopping (both fashion and souvenirs). In Thira there are better restaurant/dining options though.
As we arrived later than expected that first night, we ended up coming to Oia again the following day. We made sure to arrive earlier so that we got a good spot for the sunset, and to have a few hours to explore the town as well.

Santorini is well-known to be one of the best places to watch the most beautiful sunsets in the world. So that was what our days were structured around. My favourite was watching it from the cruise boat (which I will post about in the following post). It was the perfect view since we sailed right up to it, or as close to it as possible. We also managed to get the best spot on the boat (the tip at the front) so there were unobstructed views. Also there was a live jazz player so it added to the atmosphere. My second favourite was watching it from our hotel terrace lounge chairs. That was on the first night. Even though there were a few people at the neighbouring terraces, it felt the most private and peaceful. My least favourite was watching it from Oia with the hundreds of other people. It was a different experience altogether.
