Amoudi Bay, Oia

4.5
#1 of 30 in Nature in South Aegean
Water Body Nature / Park
A place of romantic sunsets and traditional taverns, Amoudi Bay sits just below the small port town of Oia. After a swim in the Aegean, scramble up the bay's red cliffs to take in sweeping views of the sea and the coastline, dotted by tiny beaches attracting water lovers from around the world. The bay gets extremely crowded by mid-afternoon, so try to arrive as early in the day as possible. It's best to spend the first part of the afternoon exploring the bay's many seafood restaurants, leaving plenty of time to find a good spot for watching the sunset near the water or up on the cliffs. Plan your visit to Amoudi Bay and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Oia vacation trip planner.

  • The walk down is nice but going up is a different story. There are donkeys along the way. The bay has some nice restaurants and good views. The water is very clear and clean. You can also walk around the point.
  • Ammoudi bay is situated under the village of Oia and it takes a 5 minutes drive to get there. It is a scenic fishermen bay. Not may things to do there other than enjoy the beautiful scenery towards the sea and the small port, or look up and enjoy a breathtaking view of the cliff hanging village of Oia above you. The other thing you can do is enjoy lunch or dinner in one of the fish taverns there. I suggest Katina's. Never failed me, great value for money for fresh turf dishes. Try it!!
  • Great lunch spot with a beautiful view. Fresh fish grilled to perfection yummy
  • Must See! A gem of a place unlike any other in Santorini
  • A lively, charmingly chaotic place.

Where to stay in Oia

Oia boasts arguably the most unusual lodgings in the Cyclades, offering rooms in cave-like houses carved into Santorini's dramatic cliff faces. Converted into boutique hotels, these dwellings provide airy rooms with good natural ventilation, allowing them to remain cool throughout the island's hot summers. The western side of Oia offers the best sunset views, but you must book months in advance to stay there. The less crowded eastern side offers comfortable lodgings in reasonably priced apartments with private balconies and free Wi-Fi.
