Breathtaking view during the sunset. As others said, it's better to go earlier and "reserve" your place.

Great place to watch the sunset. Get there early because it gets very very crowded. Other than the sunset there isn't too much to see here.

This is just a short walk from the centre of Oia and is a lovely view of Ammoudi Bay and people go hours early to wait there for the sunset........We went in the daytime and loved seeing all the messages, shoelaces, hair clips, padlocks, etc, that people leave there so be sure to take something to leave if you go.........Worth a visit.......

Our hotel was near here when we stayed in Oia. It is interesting to look at and take in the view but beware, everyone goes here to view the sunset. Three hours before sunset people are jockeying for the best view. Maybe find another venue to set up and see the sunset unless you like crowds!

Nice view of islands and sunset from the walls of the ruined fort. Very crowdy during sunset but really a romantic place.
