Maybe it was my awesome hotel view but this sunset was gorgeous all 3 times I watched it. My phone and DSLR camera captured it nicely too so it's a dream for photography lovers. It was just amazing with the turquoise blue sea, blue sky, caldera, pink/purple/orange horizon. And there is that very long moment when you can actually stare at the reddish sun as it takes its time to descend.. you don't even have to squint or wear sunglasses in this moment. I always had a spot to watch it on my hotel terrace. It set around 8:30 PM every night while I visited in July. But it seemed that many people outside of Oia came 2-3 hours earlier. Most just claimed a spot on an empty step or the fortress ruins. You have to come early enough since others do. You could also make reservations at one of the restaurants known for their sunset views. It's amazing high up in my opinion!
