Oia Overview

Oia is a gorgeous coastal town situated on a cliff in Santorini hanging over the mesmerizing caldera and the Thirassia island. It is a luxurious romantic getaway to the whitewashed blue domed houses and the dramatic views of the caldera reflecting the pink and purple hues of the magical sunsets. You will also find some cozy cafes, shops, and restaurants that you can explore on foot through bougainvillea-covered labyrinthine alleys.

Arguably the most stunning village on the island, your tour of the best places to see in Santorini remains incomplete if you do not visit Oia.

The view of the whitewashed cube-shaped houses cascading down the cliffs along the Caldera, the crisp white of the walls in sharp contrast to the vivid bougainvillea, the sparkling cerulean of the Aegean Sea, will leave you spellbound. Chic hotels, charming waterfront eateries serving delicious seafood, premium boutiques, and quirky handicraft outlets make this village the most popular destination in Santorini.
