Amoudi Bay, Oia

4.5
A place of romantic sunsets and traditional taverns, Amoudi Bay sits just below the small port town of Oia. After a swim in the Aegean, scramble up the bay's red cliffs to take in sweeping views of the sea and the coastline, dotted by tiny beaches attracting water lovers from around the world. The bay gets extremely crowded by mid-afternoon, so try to arrive as early in the day as possible. It's best to spend the first part of the afternoon exploring the bay's many seafood restaurants, leaving plenty of time to find a good spot for watching the sunset near the water or up on the cliffs.

  • Great food and wine! Great place to watch the sunset with dinner. There’s also an area that’s great for swimming right around the corner and has a few places to cliff dive.
  • I loved Amoudi Bay! The hike down the stairs to the bay offers some fantastic views - just avoid the donkey dung! There are numerous restaurants to choose from and they all have similar fresh seafood offerings. Once down in the bay, you can get to swimming spots by going either direction - there is a cliff jumping spot if you head to the left (after walking down the stairs) which offers great views of the island, or there is a rocky beach quite a ways to the right up a hill and then some. The cliff jumping spot takes about 5-10 minutes to walk to whereas the rocky beach is 15-20 minutes.
