Watch the sun set over the sea – Greece

Watch the sun set over the sea – Greece

Sunsets seep romance. And nowhere more so than the Greek isle of Santorini

Sunsets seep romance. And nowhere more so than the Greek isle of Santorini, the perfect confection of teetering white-wash tumbling into the sea on a craggy archipelago - all that remains of a long-blown volcano.

"The clifftop village of Oia, at Santorini's north-west tip, is the best spot for sunset-watchers," recommends Dudley der Parthog of Sunvil Holidays (www.sunvil.co.uk). "The view is over open water, with the spectacular caldera below."

It does get busy though. So to make your evening a little less crowded, try Ikaria, a remote island just off Samos, instead.

"The view from any of the three clifftop tavernas at Nas is beautiful as it's over open sea; below is a beach, a river and the remains of the Greek temple of Artemis," adds der Parthog. "The restaurants here are all excellent. Anna's is well known for its locally caught seafood; follow the sunset with a romantic lobster dinner - for half the price you'd pay on Santorini."
