Sunset in Oia, Oia

(5,500+ reviews on the web)
Lookout
Thousands of visitors come to Santorini just to experience the famed Sunset in Oia, one of the island's major attractions. A small town precariously perched on the crescent-shaped volcanic cliffs of the island, Oia has been a popular sunset-watching spot for centuries. A major stop for cruise ships touring the Aegean, the town gets quite crowded by mid-afternoon. It's best to arrive early in the day, leaving plenty of time to explore the town's narrow streets and find the best place for watching or photographing the setting sun. The western side of the town offers the finest views and attracts the majority of visitors, so claim your spot as early as you can. Plan to see Sunset in Oia and other attractions that appeal to you using our Oia vacation trip planner.

  • At least once in your life you have to witness this spectacle of nature. A unique experience, follow with the eye the sun setting slowly until it disappears behind the horizon line that separates the sky from the sea! Gorgeous

  • One of the most beautiful places I've been too, take a mental picture of the sunset so that you never forget it
  • Best sunset view of Santorini! Marvellous! View from private balcony Golden Sunset Villas, have your own private view spot.
  • This place is fantastic. It's close to everything and the staff go above and beyond. Really recommend staying here.
