Oia

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  South Aegean  /  Cyclades  /  Santorini  /  Oia
Every day hundreds of visitors come to Oia just to experience its sunsets. A small town proudly perched on top of crescent-shaped volcanic cliffs, Oia serves as one of Santorini's major cruise ship ports. Crowded and lively, the compact town epitomizes the finest aspects of Cycladic architecture, its steep alleys flanked by whitewashed houses and blue-roofed little churches. A well-preserved fort from the Venetian period serves as a lookout point, offering 360-degree views of the sea and the curving coastline. If you come to Oia solely for its sunsets, remember that the town's western side offers the finest views, so claim a good spot there as early as you can. Oia is in Santorini.

Where to stay in Oia

Oia boasts arguably the most unusual lodgings in the Cyclades, offering rooms in cave-like houses carved into Santorini's dramatic cliff faces. Converted into boutique hotels, these dwellings provide airy rooms with good natural ventilation, allowing them to remain cool throughout the island's hot summers. The western side of Oia offers the best sunset views, but you must book months in advance to stay there. The less crowded eastern side offers comfortable lodgings in reasonably priced apartments with private balconies and free Wi-Fi.
