“Gorgeous”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

This is so, so worth seeing. We saw it twice whilst in Santorini, both times were magical.

It does get VERY busy, so get there at least 30-40 mins before the sun goes down to get a decent spot. I'd recommend walking further past the castle, towards the windmill. It's quieter down there, and you'll more than likely find a nice little spot to watch from. There's also a mini market, so if you don't fancy paying the extortionate prices for drink at the restaurants with sunset, then buy your tipple of choice here for a fraction of the price.

“enjoy it from a private balcony or restaurant”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Beautiful sunset but best enjoyed while sipping your wine in the coziness of a restaurant avoiding the crazy crawds

“Best things in life are free...”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

… such as watching the sun go down into the sea from Oia in Santorini...just be sure you get a a good spot. In july the sunset is at 8:30pm, so by 8-ish the magic begins.

“Pretty but over hyped”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We were staying in fira and made the trip over to see the sunset in oia. The hike was beautiful, but our experience in oia was underwhelming. We got there a couple hours prior to sunset and viewing places were already getting packed. We found a crowded perch and saw a lovely sunset, but the crowds cheering, the hustle of getting back onto the main street after sunset did not feel worth it. On top that, couldn't find a place for dinner without a 45 min wait and eventually took a packed bus ride back to fira. Maybe would be better for folks staying in oia, but as a day visitor i found the overall sunset experience in fira more pleasurable.
