Amoudi Bay, Oia

4.5
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.

  • This is a nice enough little port area. But during the off season it seems that everything is closed, so don't come here expecting that you'll actually be able to get something to eat. Probably in sum...  more »
  • Amoudi Bay is absolutely stunning and a perfect spot to come to view the sunset! The red volcanic rock is something you will never forget. I recommend renting a car or quad to get down here because th...  more »
  • Excellent seafood. A dip in the water in the meantime. Nice view of Acrotiri and the caldera. The restaurants serve very big portions.

  • A gem in Oia! Hard to see the sunset view but food is phenomenal. We ordered a lot of things (including vegetarian options) and everything was so fresh and delicious. The service is really good and the staff is friendly. I definitely recommend their Greek salad and tzatziki. This place is know for their fresh sea food so if you are into that type of food you will enjoy this place. Their bread and vegetarian risotto are amazing as well! The place is super cozy and has a nice vibe. It is a nice date spot too. It is a bit pricey but you are getting what you pay for.
  • Not many places on earth let you have fresh and good seafood while being so close to the sea. However i do not reccomend anyone coming here on foot as walking the pathway down the extremely long steps are already tedious but you also have to watch your steps to avoid the countless donkey feces along the way.
  • Nice little cozy place to move around with good variety of food and a nice selection of shops for a varied shopping experience. It's basically everything you need is at the shops. Nice stop before one leaves for the Volcano and an experience in the warm waters.
  • The definition of a tourist spot, extremely over crowded parking was a disaster if planning on visiting make sure to come early to find a decent parking spot otherwise youll end up walking up a steep hill. The walk to the swimming spot is nice but shoes are definitely needed flip-flops ruin the entire experience as the path is gravel and some loose rocks
  • Amazing view of sunset, great food, and cliff jumping swimming hole on the island just around the dirt path past the restaurant to the left.
