Simply Stunning. Photos cannot describe the view with the wind blowing the scent of the sea towards you and the quiet calm that travels throughout Oia as everyone turns their eyes to the horizon.

Come to Santorini and Oia if you want a romantic night. Thewhole setting with the white, greek houses along the cliffside, and the view when the sun sets in the sea ... a must !

Sunsets are pretty in santorini but it gets sooooo crowded so it's best to get a spot at one of those restaurants so you can watch it in piece without getting pushed over from different directions.

The most beautiful in the world. Pictures is a must. I would highly recommend staying in Oia just for the sunsets. Having your own balcony to view and not have the hassel of the crowds along the Oia streets is worth it.

We spent several days in Oia. It was a great experience. Oia is a great place to visit. People, restaurants, stores are amazing!

The sunset at Oia has been well documented and hyped , but I had seen better sunsets. I can at least name one more place : Kanyakumari in India. The sunset depends on several conditions, one of them being the cloud formations in the sky....More

Worth the visit, but be ready for a lot of people in a small area. Try to get there an hour early to make sure you will have a good view and don't be in a rush to get out.

So so busy at sunset - the bus drops you in the central bus station and all of the little streets are so busy - some lovely shops but wait until later to look around - they stay open well after sunset

After viewing from the castle ruins one night, we took the Follow to the Volcano Sunset Tour. Fabulous and very reasonably priced.

Hi Christine, If you want an uninterrupted view of the sunset, my advice would be to book a sunset cruise, they are relatively cheap and usually include dining of some kind, this way you can avoid over crowding, get some... More
