Create an itinerary including Amoudi Bay
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 a trip to Oia easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Definitely worth a visit when holidaying in Santorini. If you eat in a tavern in the bay, continue to walk round to find a swimming/sunbathing spot which is gorgeous!! There is a rock to jump off too.

  • There are many uneven steps down from the old town in Oia to Amoudi Bay, dodging the donkey poo on the way down. I have to say it was a bit disappointing. There are some over-priced fish...

  • Go through the taverns follow the path till the end then you gonna see a little island about 50m from the sore. Swim to this little island and you will have an awesome view ahead of you. There a little church over there as well. The best stuff there is a platform like cliff over there tall enough for you to enjoy a decent cliff jump in the sea !
  • Definitely non an ordinary restaurant and not touristic. In fact the food is really good, well cooked and very tasty. You can also find a lot of gluten free options, they are really careful with allergies. A little expensive, but it worth it, specially because of the quality of food and also because of the location, in front of the sea side and also if it is windy you can sit and look at the seaside thanks to their windbreak curtains and gas heater. I definitely recommend it to those who want to pass some mindfulness hours and enjoy seaside and good food.
  • The bay itself is nice, but not so special, you can just sit here and have some food in the restaurant. I advise to come here with scooter, so easy to park it directly at the bay... There are a lot of cars and parking can be problematic. Make sure to continue walking further once the restaurants end, you will get to a nice raw rocky beach with nice option to swim, cliff jump and a breathtaking view of Oia from the water.
  • Absolutely beautiful place no matter what time of day you go there. If you want to go for the sunset view, make sure to make a reservation beforehand or it'll all be full. We walked down for lunch and it was amazing - the seafood is so fresh. The walk up back to Oia can be very tiring so watch out.
  • Super pretty. As others have said, it’s rocky. We came at 930 am in the end of June and it wasn’t that busy but by the time we left at 11:30 it was pretty busy. We went to get lunch in the bay after. Many options. I walked around when we arrived at the bay , picked out what looked the best and walked the eateries to ask who could sit us at 11:30 and there was plenty of tables then. In high(er) season I would say make a reservation somewhere.
