The Sunset Cruise starts from the port of Vlychada, a traditional fisherman’s shelter, at approximately 14.15. The first leg of our cruise takes place in the Southern part of Santorini. We will sail past the 3 colourful beaches ( Red Beach, White beach, Black beach) and we will have the chance to admire the volcanic rocks that form the island. Past the -so called- Indian Rock and the famous Venetian Lighthouse located in Akrotiri, you can lay your eyes upon the massive Caldera, the crater of the Volcano. Admire the natural beauty, feel the energy of the Volcano while hoisting up the sails and get carried away by the smooth sensation of sailing on top of the waves.
First stop is at the Volcanic Islands, “Nea Kameni” and “Palea Kameni”, the latest creations of the volcano, made entirely out of Black lava. There, you will have the chance to swim inside the “Hot Springs” area, where the water changes colour due to the high concentration of sulfour. Grab your goggles and go for it!
Departing from the Volcanic Islands you will be greated by the village of Oia, the crown jewel of Santorini. Sailing inside Caldera once again you can see the island of Therasia, the White Island and the crater of the volcano in all it’s glory!
Second stop is at “Mesa Pigadia”, part of the White Beach, one of the most beautiful bays of the island. Crystal clear water and magnificent views will welcome you and invite you for a swim, while, in the meantime, we will be preparing launch, inspired by the traditional Greek cuisine!
After the relaxing stop and delicious dinner, we will sail to the open sea to watch the amazing Santorini sunset, the jewel on the crown! Facing the setting sun, you can admire nature’s most breathtaking pallet of colours, lighting the volcanic rocks around us on fire! (Tip: This is the time for romantic pictures!)
Our adventure ends in Vlychada.
