Everyone knows that the sunsets in Oia and Santorini in general are great, but I want to tell you about where I found the most beautiful sunset on the island: the Akrotiri Lighthouse. From the Akrotiri lighthouse. We went to dinner at Taverna Nicolas (which I'd also recommend) and as the sun started going down, we decided to hop in the car and head down the small, narrow to the lighthouse. The lighthouse is perched on the cliff throwing its light out to sea and below on the rocks were huddled a dozen or so couples just quietly enjoying the view of the sea. It was a welcome relief after the crowds of sunset-seekers we found in Oia.
