We did a Tripadvisor search for best non-touristy thing to do near Oia and came up with Katharos Beach. It is about a 10-15 walk (or couple of minutes by taxi) down a not very scenic road from Oia proper. The beach is nice, secluded and a world away from the throngs on the main 'streets' in Oia. After a... More

We are on our honeymoon and decided to go to Katharos beach for the day. On the way down we discovered this empty restaurant that had very nice owners and a happy dog that walked down to the beach with us and played for about an hour before running back up to the restaurant. When we left, we were very... More

A short walk or drive from central Oia, Santorini. This beachside cafe serves the most amazing tapas. Best lunch we had on the island. Chef only there for two months believes that 'you are what you eat'. Good cocktails too!

The food was very good but expensive, the vibe, very relaxed and the views exceptional!! The service was average, more chilled I would say. I'm not sure whether it's worth the drive or walk because it is a bit out of the way but the food is not your everyday Greek food. I'm glad we found it and after it... More

We were at Katharos an hour back and what an experience it was - simply amazing! We saw the famous oia sunset sat on a prime corner seat in the restaurant and it was totally worth the wait. If there's a prime location to watch the sun set from in Oia, it's this restaurant located on the edge of a... More

Great vibe at this small, unique, out of the way restaurant lounge. Reservations needed for evening tapas since the view of the sunset is spectacular. Service was excellent as was the food, with eclectic menu and crowd and relaxed atmosphere. A 20 minute walk from Oia with a cab ride back recommended. Lamb skewers, dakos (with anchovies) and couscous were... More

My husband and I ended up over here after doing the hike from Fira to Oia. We were tired and hungry. I had ran into a great review on this place and had to find it. It was a little difficult trying to find it since we were walking but soo glad we did. The waiters are awesome and welcoming.... More

This place is great. We ate here twice. Food is fantastic as is the location, service and venue. The 1st time we came it was a little chilly after sunset so they offer blankets. We walked down from Oia (20min stroll) and took the 10 euro taxi back. Our favourite restaurant so far on our 3 week Greek trip.

Thank Maddie K
