If watching the sunset in Santorini is on your wishlist, if you have always pictured yourself, glass in hand, sitting back, relaxing as the sun fades away…this is the best Santorini sunset boat trip for you. On board of a luxurious catamaran, you will sail from Vlychada, stopping at the White Beach, the Red Beach and the famous Hot Springs. Enjoy several opportunities to swim and snorkel, a delicious dinner cooked on board, but, above all, enjoy the stunning view of the Santorini sunset.

Tour program of the Santorini sunset cruise:

  • Pick-up from your hotel in Santorini and transfer to Vlychada bay, where you will board a luxurious double-decker catamaran with expert captain and crew.
  • The first stop will be at the famous Red Beach, in the village of Akrotiri, one of the most iconic beaches in Santorini; and the reason for its popularity is its color. The red lava cliffs and sands face on to clear blue waters, providing an idyllic scene. Here you will have 30 minutes to swim and snorkel, as well as some amazing photo opportunities.
  • The second stop will be in the secluded area of Mesa Pigadia and White Beach, a stretch of black pebbles enclosed by giant cliffs made up of beautiful white and pastel colors. The waters here are especially clear and here you will have a second stop for and snorkeling. In the meantime, the crew will prepare for you a delicious BBQ dinner featuring traditional dishes and Greek appetizers, with complimentary drinks.
  • As the tour continues you will admire Aspronisi, the old Venetian Lighthouse, the Indian Rock, and the Black Mountain, black lava rocks which are prehistoric creations with surreal shapes.
  • The next stop will be at Hot Springs, under the shadow of the volcano. Here the temperature of the water is approximately 35 degrees Celsius and contains sulfur, iron and other elements which are truly beneficial for the skin. Enjoy swimming, while feeling the cold and warm currents, a natural spa for all ages.
  • After swimming at the Hot Springs, the catamaran will sail to the Caldera and Oia. With your favourite drink at hand and your camera ready to live the experience that you were waiting for: as the sun begins to set, the cascade of Oia whitewashed houses, dotted with windmills and blue dome churches will start to shine with a golden glare from the falling sun.
  • Our experience will end in Ammoudi Bay, right below Oia. From here the driver will take you back to your hotel.
*Hot Springs: It is good to know that catamarans/yachts stop 50m away from the warm sulfuric water of the Hot Springs bay. The temperature in the Hot Springs area is up to 4°C warmer than the open water. Dark color swimwear recommended.

To know more about your boat trip...

Santorini is an island of volcanic origin and that’s exactly what gives its beaches their particular charm. Imagine turquoise waters, imposing cliffs and colorful sand: welcome to the extraordinary Santorini. If you want to know which are the most beautiful beaches of the island, the ones not to be missed, join a boat tour that will show you the most beautiful and iconic places of Santorini during the sunset, when the colors of nature are even more suggestive.
Red Beach is a must-see during your holiday in Santorini: a small and wonderful beach of red and black sand that gets its color from volcanic lava. The bay offers a scenario to be seen at least once in life with the red of the coast diving into the crystal clear sea. Its shape, sheltered from the winds, makes it an ideal place for snorkeling, also thanks to its magnificent seabed.
But the colors in Santorini are a constant surprise, especially if you are on a sunset boat tour. In fact, after the Red Beach, you will be as much enchanted by the White Beach, a beautiful spot accessible only by sea. The White Beach, as its name suggests, is characterized by the white cliffs, the tall and jagged coasts, and by the white pebbles that mix with the dark sand. You’ll feel like living in a movie.
Another must-see beach in Santorini is the beach of Mesa Pigadia located in the area of the same name. Like the White Beach, Mesa Pigadia is less crowded with tourists, so that you can to enjoy it at its best. The sea here is particularly crystal-clear and the sand is covered by large dark pebbles. Mesa Pigadia is one of the wildest and most pristine beaches of Santorini and, for this reason, it is easily accessible only from the sea with a boat tour.
Finally in the top list of the best beaches in Santorini is the beach of Vlychada. Here we are on the south of the island, in a stretch of sea quite sheltered from the wind. Due to its lunar charm, the grey color and the wind-shaped coasts, Vlychada has conquered the nickname of “Moon beach”.


Yes, there will be stops to swim and snorkel.
