Santorini – Almost Heaven: The Sunset at Oia

Oia is well known for its sunset, and it has been at the very top of the list of the best sunset-watching places on earth. The best spot on the island for sunset watching is an old fort with open terrace.

When I was there, it was in mid summer, so the sunset started at around 8 p.m. However, the old fort was already getting quite crowded at around 6 p.m. With the 'kiasuim' in me, I quickly rushed to the old fort to grab a sweet spot so that I could catch all these shots to share with you.

There were three Brazilians beside me, two teenagers who are model wannabes and their auntie who's a party animal who can't live without clubbing. I had a great chat with them while waiting for one of the best sunset scenes on earth.


8 p.m. it was.


Slightly later than 8 p.m.
