Sunsets are beautiful, there is no denying in that. And sunsets in an amazing town like Oia are even more beautiful. But what is supposed to be a romantic and quiet experience has become a tourist trap. Massive crowds of thousands of often times rude and inconsiderate tourists force their way through the beautiful, narrow streets of Oia, all to take that one picture that is supposed to accumulate likes on Instagram. Pushing and trespassing seem to have become the norm, which is sad really, given the impressive beauty of the town of Oia.
My two cents: visit Oia at daytime and catch the sunset somewhere else (e.g. Akrotiri).
