The Basics

Oia is a popular inclusion on Santorini sightseeing tours, shore excursions, and boat tours, and most excursions time their visit to catch the sunset. Combine a tour of Oia with nearby attractions like the archaeological site of ancient Akrotiri or the Monastery of Profitis Ilias, a visit to traditional villages like Pyrgos or Fira, or a Santorini wine tasting. Alternatively, set sail around Thirassia island, enjoy snorkeling at Red Beach, or take a soak in the hot springs on Nea Kameni island. Then, sail past Oia on a sunset cruise.

Santorini Day Tour with Sunset in Oia
The view from the highest point on Santorini was fantastic. Lena, the most wonderful guide, took us through the oldest part of Oia, winding through a maze-like labyrinth of actual homes. The archaeological site was very interesting as was the underground cave museum. Many opportunities for beautiful pictures. This tour was a highlight of our 11-day visit to Greece. Lena was very very entertaining and knowledgeable and personable.

Blue Dome & Sunset in Oia by Notos Travel
This was a lovely little trip that ended with a beautiful sunset. You get to see the famous viewing points & sights of Santorini, ending in Oia for around 2 hours. Oia is very busy & a bit overpriced, but Imerovigli is a lovely cliff top location that we wished you spent more time at! The tour guide was very knowledgeable & friendly. A great trip if you don’t want to be out in the heat all day.

Santorini Volcano Cruise Including Hot Springs, Thirasia and Optional Oia Sunset
Loved jumping into the water from the boat and swimming to the spring which were right nearby! I would suggest not taking the sunset at oia segment because you get dropped off there a few hours before sunset. All in all was still an amazing experience!

Firostefani & Oia Village Minibus Panoramic Tour
Great way to see island. Local guide meet us at top of cable car as arranged and our tour began with the breathtaking views from the top of Fira and then onto the village of Oia also the most beautiful views where we wandered around for an hour. Grape growing and wine making was explained while travelling around and guide took us to the best locations to see and photograph. When having limited time from cruise ship we had great experience on this tour.

How to Get There

Oia is located at the northwestern tip of Santorini island, about 6.5 miles (11 kilometers) north of Fira. Without your own transport, the easiest way to visit Oia is with a guided tour. However, it’s also possible to arrive by taxi or take the local bus from Fira. Hikers can also walk the coastal trail between Fira and Oia, a scenic 3- to 4-hour walk along the top of the caldera.

When to Get There

There’s no doubt that the most atmospheric time to visit Oia is at sunset and the small village can be suddenly overrun by crowds at dusk. To experience the quieter side of the village, plan to spend a night at one of Oia’s boutique hotels or visit during the winter months, when you’ll have the sunset to yourself.

A Walking Tour of Oia Village

Oia’s beautiful architecture and vast ocean views are best enjoyed on a walking tour, and the maze of narrow streets are full of shops, art galleries, and cafés. Stop to visit the tiny Naval Maritime Museum, admire the historic captains’ houses, and explore the ruins of Oia’s Venetian Fortress, then follow the 300 steps from the top of the caldera down to the fishing port of Ammoudi.
