Folks aren’t joking when they say Santorini has some of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet. Proof positive? The enthusiastic spectators who line the whitewashed roofs each summer night. In Oia, on the northern tip of this crescent-shaped island (and only a short bus ride from Thera), it’s a nightly ritual for travelers and locals alike who come together to watch the show — clapping with loud applause as the sun makes its final descent and day turns into night. You might pinch yourself, but yes it really is that stunning!
