“Such a tourist magnet but absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The sunset in Santorini is well-known and you cannot go to this island without seeing it (as if there any way to avoid it). This is a big tourist magnet, and I have to admit I was well surprised when I realised how many people that actually turned up on the west tip of Oia to see it. I also felt really stupid when realising people were actually clapping while the sun went down, which lasted for like 20-30 minutes. BUT it might be the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen and it was absolutely worth it.

“Spetacular sunset, amazing walking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

You can spend a couple of hours there. Or a day. Or a life. It's up to you.

The unforgettable sunset is the main attraction but walking around and exploring every little corner you may find (and you might find many of them) is another lovely thing to do.

Just forget about the time (but check out the bus schedule to get back to Fira!).

“VERY NICE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

OIA should be included on everyone's list of things to see in Santorini. It is an exquisitely beautiful Town with some tremendous views from various parts of it.
