Thousands of visitors come to Santorini just to experience the famed Sunset in Oia, one of the island's major attractions. A small town precariously perched on the crescent-shaped volcanic cliffs of the island, Oia has been a popular sunset-watching spot for centuries. A major stop for cruise ships touring the Aegean, the town gets quite crowded by mid-afternoon. It's best to arrive early in the day, leaving plenty of time to explore the town's narrow streets and find the best place for watching or photographing the setting sun. The western side of the town offers the finest views and attracts the majority of visitors, so claim your spot as early as you can. Make Sunset in Oia part of your personalized Oia itinerary using our Oia attractions planner.

Yes, it's a sunset. A lovely sunset. But no different to what I have seen in countless places around the world. more »
By-far the BEST activity we did during our honeymoon! After looking at many different sunset cruise options we decided with this company based on the price, reviews, and the places that it goes. We also upgraded to the diamond cruise since it has 20 people on it versus the 50 on some other cruises. Once we saw the other boats with a lot more people on it, we knew we made a good choice for a more intimate experience. It's worth the extra money! The crew was friendly and the food was great! This cruise also offers transportation to and from and allows the best view of the famous Santorini sunset!
Great sunset catamaran sail. Food was excellent and the boat staff were helpful and friendly. Highly recommend to do the Platinum sail with max 7 couples on the boat
