One of the most beautiful sunsets in the world! What makes it even better is the crowd! If you want to get a good spot to see it you should get there an hour - hour and a half before the sunset.

Watch the sunset from the suite I was staying in. Beautiful sunset among the white houses in Santorini. Though beautiful, the sun was small compared to sunsets at other places I have been. Hence, I cannot say that it is the most beautiful sunset in...More

Just an amazingly beautiful site to see when visiting Santorini. There are many vantage points to see it from and you get varying hues over say a 2 hour period of the sun setting. Well worth the time and preparation to get your ideal spot...More

How can a sunset be so special? Ask Zeus! Because this one is! Many places to chopse in the village, you have to wait half an hour to follow the whole spectacle! Orange, red, yellow, looks like your last day on earth directly to heaven!...More

Magical sunset in Oia. Do not miss it if you are in Santorini. Never seen anything like it. Sunset started slowly at around 7pm then at around 8:15 pm the sun went from full red to into the ocean within 10 minutes. A very special...More

We did. Or get there early enough but still managed some beautiful photos. The crowds are incredible, but so are the views. It's so picturesque. We came back to oia the next day to walk around more. You can't go wrong here.

It seems that the whole world in merging to the edge of Oia.... Thousands of people on a small piece of land.... We therefore went a little out of town and the sun was going down the same way but there was just my husband...More

I think it's the sunset being in Oia with the wind milled cliff as the frame that gets people excited about a Santorini sunset. The crowds are a challenge especially when you really need to find a good spot an hour beforehand. Not a fan...More

Oia's sunset is ranked in Top 5 sunset views across the world. What a peaceful and serene view it was. Everyone was just waiting for the sun to go down sitting on stairs in front of houses and shut down restaurants/shops. No one would disturb...More

We stayed at the castle one day and another day we stayed at Floga restaurant, which is very nice , you can also get a perfect view from Imerovigli which is about 20 minute drive from Oia and very quiet

I'm going to be in Oia in April and I'd like to see the sunset, but in peace without the crowds. Is this possible? Are there any good sunset-watching spots in Oia that are relatively uncrowded?
