The sunsets at Oia are marketed in a way that the visitor thinks he/she is going to experience a wonderful sunset every night. Without saying something that is too obvious the quality of the sunset is entirely predicated on the climatic conditions. So, if there is a sea mist or a high summer heat haze or heavy condensation rising from... More

Mesmerising. Santorini looks the best during the sunset. The secret us actually to remember to make photos of Santorini not just the sun going down

Sunsets in Oia (Ía say the locals) i.e. sunsets seen from Oia are mostly really beautiful. They are perfectly as beautiful as are the sunsets seen from almost any place over Santorini´s caldera rim . There is simply no reason to go to Oia full of buses, cars and crowds in the evening to see "the famous sunset" when you... More

I would suggest making a reservation at any of the roof top restaurants in Oia in order to see a perfect view of the Sunset. We vacationed here and let me tell you that everyone should put going to Santorini Greece on their bucket list. We visited the Red Sand beach, which is clothing optional but we only seen a... More

We joined a volcano tour including the oia sunset but it rained on that evening. Therefore we went on our own on the next evening. We took a nice spot and saw the beautiful sunset. It was crowded but it's worth to go!

Everywhere you look there is a picture to be taken. Oia is perfectly placed to give you the "sunset" of your life. Get a bottle of wine sit back and enjoy the free show that only God know how to do.

All of the locals will recommend that you get the best photographs from the castle at the end of the marble path in Oia and they are right. You have to get there really early to get a space, it's packed and everyone is jostling each other trying to get a good shot and pitching up their tripods, it's like... More

Oia is a cute town. Breathtaking views all over Santorini. I would recommend having dinner in Fira as you watch the sunset!

Oia is too pretty for its own good. The hordes of cruise ship passengers clogging the narrow pathways make for a very unpleasant experience. I even heard one of the group leaders holder the sign for his passengers state "this town is too small to accommodate an extra 20,000 people every day" - referring to the number of day trippers...
