You can't see the sunset from every place in Oia. The best places are often crowded, but definitely with it. It is actually busier during the day when a lot of tourists are cruising the pedestrian walkway. After the sun goes down, Oia is a quiet place... And we felt it became our own.

No matter how much you are told there is a big crowd at Oia to watch the sunset you can't be prepared for the amount of tourists squeezing themselves between the buildings and sitting on the edge of buildings and ledges to watch this famous sunset. I had to lift my camera passed 3 rows of people just to get a photo. It is definitely worth watching but it is spoilt by the crowd.

Get the time right and you will see a sunset from heaven. Watch for the crowds though can be a bit of just a box ticking exercise for some of them. Take a dinner, glass of wine and relax and enjoy rather than jostle about and click cameras!

The sunset was as beautiful as I imagined. However, I didn't expect the crowd to be that much. So if you want a high spot with clear view to the horizon, make sure you come early to the top of Oia. The ambience was very romantic as there were street musicians performing during the sunset. And when the sun finally set, people was cheering. However, we went to the same spot at the same time the next day. But it was a big foggy, so we couldn't see the horizon clearly. So the view was not as majestic as the first one.
Hope you have a good luck when you're in Oia!
