That moment when you ask the guide to stop so you can capture the beautiful Brazilian golden hour.

Santo Wines – Santorini, Greece

There is nothing like a nice glass of wine on a terrace, on a summer night, people watching. You know what’s even better though? Several glasses of wine, on a summer night, sunset watching in Santorini.

On a late afternoon we headed to Santo Wines in the middle part of the island, just a little south of Fira for a winery tour.

Santorini Santo Wines

The tour was very interesting and educative. We learned about the history of the island, the soil and the cultural meaning associated with wine making in Santorini.

After an hour tour, we headed to the panoramic terrace for the real treat! We were served a tray of wine glasses to enjoy with nibbles and the view.

As we say in French ‘Apero!

Our only job for the rest of the day was to enjoy the wine and take as many pictures as we possibly could of the caldera and the sunset.

The wine made me a little ‘creative’ which made for some interesting photographs of wine glasses, sunset, wine glasses and sunset, sunset through wine glasses. You get the picture! 😉

We left Santo Wines a little tipsy and a little more in love with Santorini. Absolutely worth visiting!

Sunset Cruise – Santorini, Greece

Santorini has some of the most beautiful sunset views in the world, so a sunset cruise is a must if you are visiting the island! It was one of the highlights of our honeymoon.

We booked ours with Caldera Yachting, and even though it is a little pricey it worth every penny.

A van picked us up from Grace Hotel around 2pm and we headed to the port right by Oia where our catamaran was waiting for us. The drive in itself is an adventure with roads so narrow you wonder how a minivan fits in.

Sunset Cruise Santorini

We boarded the boat with 8 other people. The group was small enough that everybody had enough space on the boat yet big enough that you can have interesting conversations with people from all around the world.

After introductions and the safety brief we were off! Sailing through the Caldera is pretty special!

First stop Palea Kameni, for dip in the hot spring.

A guide was with us at all time and answered any questions we may have about the island. An entertaining and educating afternoon!

Our second stop was next to Nea Kameni. This is where the crew served us dinner. The food, a selection of freshly barbecued fish and meat and salads, was delicious.

With full bellies we headed to our last stop, the sunset… And because images speak louder than words I am leaving you here to enjoy a selection of my favourite pictures below.
