There’s something pretty special about a sunset. When the sun dips down and washes away the day, ready to welcome in dusk and what the night has to bring.
This magnificent change from day to night is ten fold when the sun dips into the ocean, which is so often the case in the Mediterranean.
This part of the world is well known for its painted skies at dusk, with some sunsets being so iconic people flock from all over the world and applaud the sun for it’s magical show once it’s over.
Here are our favourite spots to take in a Mediterranean sunset!
1. Mykonos, Greece
Despite it’s reputation as the party capital of the Greek Islands, Mykonos can pull off a very impressive sunset! Sit at the waters edge, or watch from the surrounding areas of Little Venice or The Windmills.
2. Zadar, Croatia
Perhaps one of the most breathtaking sunsets in Croatia can be found in Zadar! Hundreds flock to the Sun Salutation each evening in the summer to capture the sun as it sets off a purple and pink haze across the Adriatic as it goes down.
3. Santorini, Greece
Looking out from the Caldera as the sun sets into the Mediterranean Sea, it’s easy to see why people travel from the other side of the world to capture this beauty! You can capture the perfect Santorini sunset on our Greek Island Hopping Tours.
4. Mljet National Park, Croatia
What could be better than watching a sunset surrounded by incredible nature? Quaint, quiet & breathtaking – this is the perfect spot to watch the sunset with friends over a glass of wine or two!
4. Dubrovnik, Croatia
Affectionately known as the Pearl of the Adriatic – it’s not difficult to see why Dubrovnik has earned this well-worthy title. Team a sunset with a cocktail at Buza Buza Bar, and you have the perfect summers evening! You can catch a Dubrovnik sunset on one of Sail Croatia’s many Navigator cruises operating throughout the summer.
6. Hvar, Croatia
Regardless of the pumping music and flowing cocktails it almost feels as though everything and everyone stops to capture the sunset at Hula Hula Bar in Hvar.
