I watched the world's most watched sunset at Oia, Greece and loved every minute of it
Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are beautiful but because they are fleeting - Richard Paul Evans.
And I could not get over these words as I watched one of the worlds’ most watched sunset at
As you explore Oia, you get to know that
With the sunset time getting closer you also get to see a lot of crowds, each busy clicking selfies and pictures. Everyone begins to gather at view point well in advance. The steep cliff on one side, people sailing on boats in the Aegean, while few just soaking in the moment - everyone chose their favorites to watch the site.
As the glow of the sun descends, its reflections adds a charm to this island and makes the whole experience much more dramatic and a treat for your tired eyes. The shadow of the Caldera as it falls on the island is nothing less than just being visually pleasing.
Step by step, with every breath you take the sun takes a dip closer to the Aegean you magic right there happening as water turn to shades of yellow, orange and then to fantastic purples. While the houses sees a pinkish glow. Something only which the eyes can capture to last a lifetime.
Though every viewpoint gives you something eternal, it’s a 40 minutes of sheer pleasure to watch “it” disappear in the sea as the magic light fills the sky. And finally to celebrate this spectacle everyone shares an applause.
Don' t forget that the castle is not the only place to watch the lovely sunset, rather if you are in for that romantic set-up, than can book a table in any of the restaurants along the sea that give the best view as you sip some of the finest Greek wine.
