We go to the bay to take picture and take the tour to caldera. The sea is beautiful clear green and blue and you can see Oia up in the hill

You would realy miss something if you visit Oia without going down to Amoudi Bay. Excellents restaurants down there, extremely scenic, the atmosphere is unique. You reaaly feel cut from the rest of the world.

One can either take a short taxi ride down from Oia, ride the donkey down, walk down via the stairs. We chose to walk, but one must be relatively fit for the walk up and wear good shoes as there are many potholes. Don't forget a torchlight if walking at night as the path is not well lit! There are... More

Amoudi Bay is a scenic spot and great views up to Oia - but don't stop at the port. Continue along the rugged path around the cliff for a fantastic swimming spot. It is a small rocky beach - sort of. You lower yourself into the water from the rocks for a great swim across to another rock - there... More

This was a last minute decision to go and are we glad we went. Not opting for the stairs we took our quads via a road that will lead you to the bottom. From there a walk to the bay, can be a bit tricky for some but take your time as it is well worth it. Not really an... More

The walk down the stairs is fun and pretty easy, but the walk up is pretty difficult in the heat. But it's worth it. It is a really interesting place to see and is quit unique. If you walk around the cliffs and walk for about 5 minutes on a path, you get to an amazing swimming place. The water... More

We dined at Ammoudi seafood restaurant for drinks and appetizers mid afternoon. It was so cute and quaint with octopus strung up in front of the restaurant. Cruise ships sail by and create waves that the wait staff said sometimes take over the diners at the restaurants! We thought it was hilarious. It didn't affect us, but the wait staff... More

We have been going to Amoudi Bay to swim and jump off the island for the past 22 years. It is literally our favourite place in the world to swim. We have never eaten at any of the restaurants at Amoudi Bay and we likely never will. While they all look charming, we have always heard that it is very... More

My husband went jumping off the Nicolas island every day. A little bit of a hike but was great to dip in the Med to cool off every day.
