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.

Me and my boys absolutely loved this tour! It was a long day but a great way to see the whole island. Our tour guide Nicole was great and we loved the archeological site - we probably wouldn’t have stopped their on our own but it was fascinating. The beach was a refreshing break too. Great bus driver. Highly recommend this tour!!

Private Oia Panoramic Scenes: Embrace the most picturesque village of Santorini!
This was an amazing tour! It was very fun and informative. Argyris was the best and knew the all the right places to take us to for beautiful photo ops. He was very friendly and was able to answer all of our questions. We have been on several tours and nothing beats this one.

Santorini Day Tour with Sunset in Oia
It was a full feature tour covering every aspect of Santorini. The guide (Elena) was very informative and entertaining at the same time. Starting from Akrokriti, ending with Oia sunset, it was trip fully worth the price.

Wonderful introduction of Santorini island

Santorini Day Tour with Sunset in Oia
Christine was an excellent host and I’m amazed that she’s fluent in Greek, Spanish, French and English. We definitely got a good introduction of the island of Santorini. The tour of ruins, winery, beach, a quick picture stop at the highest point in Greece was wonderful. Not to mention it came with the drive to Oia to catch the sunset. All of this in one day is well worth it. Also, our driver Dimitri was great esp with having to drive thru the narrow roads.

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.
