Come See the Breathtaking Sunset In Oia

Written by in , Comments Off on Come See the Breathtaking Sunset In Oia

Oia, Greece is a small town on the island of Santorini, and it is home to one of the most spectacular sights that one can see with their own two eyes.

Starting right at the top of the list of things you absolutely have to do while you’re in Oia is to see the beautiful sunset. Like many who have been there before, they will all tell you the same thing. It’s one OiaSunsetof the most amazing sunsets that you will ever experience in your entire life. One might skeptically say that all sunsets are the same, but that is simply not true. The sunset in Oia is just different. And by different, I mean that it is breathtaking. You’ll want to get there a little bit early, as crowds form in large quantities to get a look at the sunset in Oia. Don’t forget your camera!

During the day, you’ll want to check out Amoudi Bay. Located on the lower end of Oia, the shockingly blue waters are perfect for swimming. Although there is no beach area, one of the attractions of Amoudi Bay are the large rocks that people jump off of into the water. There are also plenty of restaurants located in the bay area that have amazing views of the water, and serve deliciously tasting fish that were caught right there in Amoudi Bay.

Just like in the movies when the rich and famous character is getting a massage while overlooking sky blue waters in what seems to be paradise — yeah, you can do that in Oia, and you don’t have to be rich or famous to do so. At Caldera Massages Studio & Spa, you can enjoy an outdoor massage, overlooking the water, for a whole hour at an affordable price. If you’re with your significant other, I can’t recommend the sunset massage enough. With the sunset massage, you and your significant other will get the full hour massage, while the sun sets over the water right in front of you, and then you can enjoy a bottle of champagne from the studio’s private balcony. It’ll be a night that you and that special person in your life will never forget.

While all of that probably sounds like plenty to do while in Oia, you haven’t truly visited Oia until you have gone on the SAFOWI Santorini Food and Wine Tours. On this fascinating tour, you will visit wineries in Santorini, while learning so much information about Santorini wine, the process in which it is made, and the history of the island of Santorini itself.

The last recommendation that I will make for you is somewhat of a hidden gem on the island. As I mentioned before, the sunset in Oia is one of the biggest — if not the biggest — attraction on the whole island. Definitely watch the sunset while you’re getting a massage at Caldera Massages Studio & Spa, but if you have more than one night in Oia, you need to watch the sunset from Lioyerma Lounge Cafe Pool Bar. Here, you will be avoiding the large crowds that I had mentioned before, and you can witness the amazingly beautiful sunset in an environment that is both quiet and relaxing. A pool, good food, drinks and even lounge chairs that line the edge of the cliff for sunset viewing. You’ll thank me later for this one!
