The Basics

Oia is a popular inclusion on Santorini sightseeing tours, shore excursions, and boat tours, and most excursions time their visit to catch the sunset. Combine a tour of Oia with nearby attractions like the archaeological site of ancient Akrotiri or the Monastery of Profitis Ilias, a visit to traditional villages like Pyrgos or Fira, or a Santorini wine tasting. Alternatively, set sail around Thirassia island, enjoy snorkeling at Red Beach, or take a soak in the hot springs on Nea Kameni island. Then, sail past Oia on a sunset cruise.

A great tour if you don’t want a full day in the sun!

Santorini Blue Dome, Imerovigli and Oia Sunset Tour
This was a lovely little trip that ended with a beautiful sunset. You get to see the famous viewing points & sights of Santorini, ending in Oia for around 2 hours. Oia is very busy & a bit overpriced, but Imerovigli is a lovely cliff top location that we wished you spent more time at! The tour guide was very knowledgeable & friendly. A great trip if you don’t want to be out in the heat all day.

Santorini Volcano Cruise Including Hot Springs, Thirasia and Optional Oia Sunset
Loved jumping into the water from the boat and swimming to the spring which were right nearby! I would suggest not taking the sunset at oia segment because you get dropped off there a few hours before sunset. All in all was still an amazing experience!

Santorini Volcanic Islands Cruise: Volcano,Hot Springs,Thirassia and Oia Sunset
Nice places and good guide. For groups with the sunset option I d suggest to see the coast (little church and the Rocks) going to the volcanos in the morning and to leave people directly in Oia on the way back. The bus transfer from the port to Oia was very long.

Santorini Day Tour with Sunset in Oia
Well organized tour. Stopped at all the hot spots of Santorini, and the weather was perfect. Convenient day tour that started after 10:30am. Excellent guides. (The first guide told enough funny jokes to cover the cost of the tour; the views at many iconic photo stops was a bonus)

Santorini Tour with Akrotiri & Oia Sunset
Excellent tour. Yanni was our guide and was great. He is an archeologist and made some of the sites that much more meaningful. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect Day Tour

Santorini Day Tour with Sunset in Oia
I would highly recommend this tour at the beginning of your vacation to get to know the island or if you are traveling alone. I was a solo backpacker and it was the perfect trip to give me an overview of the islands layout, history, food and overall culture. Tour guide was great, and if your debating booking, just do it now.

How to Get There

Oia is located at the northwestern tip of Santorini island, about 6.5 miles (11 kilometers) north of Fira. Without your own transport, the easiest way to visit Oia is with a guided tour. However, it’s also possible to arrive by taxi or take the local bus from Fira. Hikers can also walk the coastal trail between Fira and Oia, a scenic 3- to 4-hour walk along the top of the caldera.

When to Get There

There’s no doubt that the most atmospheric time to visit Oia is at sunset and the small village can be suddenly overrun by crowds at dusk. To experience the quieter side of the village, plan to spend a night at one of Oia’s boutique hotels or visit during the winter months, when you’ll have the sunset to yourself.

A Walking Tour of Oia Village

Oia’s beautiful architecture and vast ocean views are best enjoyed on a walking tour, and the maze of narrow streets are full of shops, art galleries, and cafés. Stop to visit the tiny Naval Maritime Museum, admire the historic captains’ houses, and explore the ruins of Oia’s Venetian Fortress, then follow the 300 steps from the top of the caldera down to the fishing port of Ammoudi.
