Ammoudi Bay Overview

Ammoudi Bay is one of the best places to visit in Santorini, which is a gorgeous bay and a tiny port city situated at the foundation of Oia village. It is a scenic spot with a rocky volcanic coastline and crystalline water, offering an opportunity to indulge in diving. It is also an ideal place to enjoy the picturesque views of the majestic sunset and the fishing boats.

One of the lesser-known places to visit in Santorini, this picture-perfect 19th-century harbor can be reached from Oia by climbing down over 200 steps. At the end of this descent, you will be pleased to enjoy an alfresco meal of flavorsome seafood and quality wine at the tavernas lining the water's edge.

The glittering water pulls you in for a vigorous swim, and the many rocks around make it the perfect spot for cliff diving. This place is also the idyllic destination of honeymooners for candlelight dinners or date nights.
