Sunset in Oia, Oia

(4.4/5 based on 5,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I am really sorry of what happens in Oia every afternoon. Thousand of people, from all over the island and from cruise ships, with hundreads of big busses that create a terrible problem of traffic in ...  more »
  • One of the most beautiful Sun ports seen and documented in all my travels. The Key West was to shame. Not to mention all the beautiful visual con to the surroundings and the local breezes. Sensational. A Must.

  • Experience was everything I was hoping for and more. Crew was very nice and informative. Boat was in great shape! Food was even delicious. Was a great all around activity and one that I would say is a must do if you visit Santorini.
  • Amazing service from the staff and crew at Sunset Oia. We got our very own private Catamaran and did a day tour. The lunch was cooked and bbq on the spot and was delicious. Not much to see for snorkeling as there isn't much fishes. Water's really cold too. But all in all a great experience.
  • From start to finish our sunset cruise was fabulous. My friends said that was the best day of the trip.
  • Totally amazing. Want to do the trip again!! Staff were superb, couldn't do enough for you. Well worth the money.
  • Fantastic experience sailing with this crew off the coast of Santorini. Professional, courteous staff, and great fun sailing on the catamaran.
