        CRETAN SUNRISES and SUNSETS

        What is the best time of year to witness stunning, colourful sunsets in Crete ?

        Is there a particular part of the island that is preferable to see them ? :-?

            The latest the sun sets here is 8.48 from the Summer Solstice 21st June until around the 8th of july.
            Any Northern beach will have spectacular sunsets and Sissi usually has many people taking photos from the breakwater or sitting in the harbour and watching the sun go down over Dia Island.
            Most of our visitors have taken photos of this spectacular view.
            Some of the best Full Moon photos I have seen have been taken in Loutro on the south coast.
