We hiked the five hours from Fira to Oia. After walking around Oia a little bit, we found a spot on the west side of town (on a hill above Ammoudi Bay) to watch the sunset. From our vantage point, it set right into the ocean. Of course, it was beautiful, but in my opinion, no better than the sunset... More

Oia is swamped by bus loads of tourists for the evening sunset. You can enjoy a much better sunset in Thira with Oia in the distance, not dealing with the hoards of tourists. I'm not sure even why watching the sunset in Oia is recommended unless it is the local business association that's trying to get tourists into town.

magnificent sunset. Remember to go early to find a good place as it gets very crowded in the peak season. There are other alternative area to view the sunset as well

Beautiful sunsets right across the ocean - great for photographers. Also sunset cruises are well run and a great afternoon/evening out with a meal and drinks included. Well worth the money.

This was amazing! The narrow paths was filled with people chatting and laughing with a drink in hand waiting for the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen. When the sun went down everyone cheered and clapped, such amazing thing to be part of!

Oia is simply stunning and wonderful place to watch the sun go down. Take a bus from the main terminal in Fira before 4pm as they are all full after that time. Loads of beautiful bars restaurants and shops

Make sure get the right spot to watch this sunset. Either watch it from one of the many cruise / boat tours or on the cliff end of Oia. Don't watch it from a restaurant. The beauty of the sunset is when the view is unobstructed.
