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. Make Sunset in Oia part of your personalized Oia itinerary using our Oia attractions planner.

  • Absolutely the best time! The crew was so interactive and made it so much fun. Multiple opportunities to swim & snorkel. Food was amazing. Other people on the boat were amazing. Ample shade & sun spots at the same time. Would definitely do it again! You guys are the BEST at Sunset Oia. Thank you, thank you! 😘 besos!
  • We had a wonderful afternoon with Sunset Oia! The door to door shuttle was incredibly convenient, the staff was wonderful, the dinner was delicious, and the boat was so much fun! Only complaint was that the music selection on the boat wasn't our taste. Other than that, we had a great time!
