Breathtaking Sunset in Crete

Admiring a Spectacle of Colors and Magic

Crete Island has a unique geographical location, like a mountainous strip in the middle of the boundless expanse of the Mediterranean Sea. Its long coasts, aligned on the east-west direction, offers tourists the privilege to admire from many places, both sunrise and sunset, reflecting in the luster of the sea.

 Crete is surnamed the "island of the sun", having the longest beach season of all European summer holiday destinations (from April to October) and the most numerous and longest sunny days a year. The golden beaches and spectacular shores, the soothing lines of the hills with the imposing mountains in the background, the shades of seawater, from emerald green to bright turquoise and deep blue, make Crete the ideal place for total rest and psycho-sensory relaxation.

 But what brings an extra romance and poetry to a holiday in Crete are the memorable sunsets, which simply, if you are a nature lover, you can't miss. At least once, it is worth taking a walk on the shore, to admire the metamorphosis of the dusk colors, in an amazing show of a few minutes. To experience the breathtaking feeling that the planet is submerged in the crucible of an alchemist painter.

 When the great globe of fire descends to the horizon, and the waters of the Mediterranean Sea look-alike a simmering magma, the legend has it that Helios, the Sun God, sinks with his triumphal chariot into the sea.

 Kalinichta, Helios! See you tomorrow! 😊
