Amoudi Bay, Oia

(2,400+ reviews on the web)
Water Body
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.

  • Wonderful place, so to come out of painting! Several restaurants to eat from fish up lobster and even fresh!! Worth a walk though I would suggest to go off season period

  • Views of the sunset, a tiny port, but also an amazing restaurant of the same name, which is definitely worth a visit

  • This little bay has nothing much of interest there apart lovely view out to sea, and a fish taverna with good food if you are a fish fan. It is off the main track, but worth a visit as it is usually v...  more »

  • Great place for lunch, lots of stairs to walk down from Oia, you can take the taxi or ride the donkey:)
  • Very nice place to eat by the sea. There are about 5 or 6 taverns, so you have where to choose from. Not quite sure about walking to the bay. We had an atv and drove there as it was way to hot to travel on foot. You can also get there by car, but there is not much parking space.
  • This is an OK place but probably not worth the trek down there, which in Santorini heat is far from easy, not to mention the way back up. Donkey rides are available though at a cost. There isn't a huge amount to do once you get down the stairs. There are five seafood restaurants next to the sea.
  • Has great sunset and seafood. Lots of donkey poop along the way
  • A long walk down and up. Bring proper footwear or ride a donkey
