quartz 27 Oct 2010To fix or break your heartIf I wasn't already married, I would certainly love to get married with this amazing sunset at the background. Maybe a vow renewal could also do or a silver anniversary! Really people, this is the sunset that either revives your love or breaks your heart! The best sunset was in Oia sure, but in Imerovigli was also great and certainly less crowded.
tessydat 13 Jun 2010Will remain in me foreverThis is one sunset I will never forget!! The picturesque island of Santorini is eminent for legendary tales. Nature is at its best as the sun kissed the island, beautiful beaches and romantic sunset add glory to the place. Now I know why millions of tourists across the world come to this beautiful and wonderful place - to enjoy tranquility and pure nature. There are numerous spots in Santorini that boast of beautiful and unobstructed view of the sunset. I loved watching the fireball slowly disappear into the magnificent Aegean Sea. The vibrant orange and pink colors added beauty to the environment. This sunset will remain with me forever.
agelikoni 26 Oct 2009The most romantic sunsetThinking about Santorini... the first thing that always comes in my mind is the sunset. The island is famous all over the world for its spectacular sunsets and the best place to enjoy these sunsets is Oia village.
Many locals and tourists, visit Oia in Santorinievery evening, seating at the coffee shops or in a quiet romantic spot, starring the stunning view. The most well known spot for this sunset viewing in Oia, is the Kastro Walls.
While the sun sinks into the sea, its splendid colors spread throughout the sky. It literally takes your breath away! Best place to be, especially if you are a couple.
After spending one evening watching the sunset, you will have these memories for a long long time. While wandering at the narrow paths and speaking with the locals, you learn about many love stories of couples that visited the village. True or not, the whole place is so romantic, like it has been taken out of a fairytale.
Getting lost in Oia narrows paths, you will find plenty of souvenir shops with handicrafts and jewelleries, along with many traditional sweets and drinks.
jellyf 04 May 2009Be careful with pricesI think it is a common sense that the vibe in Oia was certainly better than in Fira, which was most tourist and crowded. The first stop on the island is Fira and then the crowd sets apart to the different sides of Santorini. Also, from there start all the buses and taxis, so it is normal to be the most popular place on the island. On the other side, Oia is soft and calm and moving and most of all it has the best sunset I have seen! The locals are lucky to see it every day, although when we see something beautiful many times, in the end we come not to appreciate it. It is a pity that I couldn't take any photo of this great sunset (camera baterries run off the worst time!).
Prices are also better in Oia than in other sides of Santorini. I was surprised to see that grilled fish would cost 60 (!) euros in Fira and only 24 in Oia. Fish are sold by kilo in Greece. When you ask a waiter to suggest a dish, he will probably suggest you the most expensive in the restaurant. Also prices in souvenirs are much different, so better check before you buy. I bought a fridge magnet for 6 euros in Fira and I saw the exact same magnet in a store next street for 3 euros.
stavrpap 15 Mar 2009Most romantic sunsetIndeed Santorini has the best sunset in the world!! I am happy that I experienced such a romantic view and I am much happier that I spent my honeymoon there :))
ocean.blu 19 Oct 2008Keep your charmGreece is a place that I always dreamed of, a place that I always wanted to vist. I have been travelling around Europe since lthe ast 3 years but Greece was the only country that I left off for some reason. Finally this year I managed to organise myself to visit Greece. It was my first time & I haven't have much expected over there. I managed to get some info from tourism of Greece & thanks to Greeka.com too, which provided me lots of information as a first time visitor.
I stayed in Santorini - Marizan Village Oia.
I was amazed by the hospitality of the hotel owner who provided us whatever for our convenience. He even welcomed us when we first arrived, which never happenned to me as a traveller. He always greeted to us whatever he saw us & made sure we all were alrights & fulfill whatever we needed such as arrange personal tours guide to show us along Santorini, our transportation, even delivered take away for us. . .etc.
I was over whelming by the views of Santorini and impressed with the breath takings of Oia. What on earth this place has been keep up so well with all the traditional houses & churches. And the seafood was unbelievable fresh & cheap! The people there was amazing friendly & helpful. In our hotel, we had private privileged place of viewing sunset, that's absolutely awesome! We stayed at Oia 3 days, then moved down to Kalmari area, we were really disappointed with the town as it was no way near what we had experienced in Oia.
I'd travelled many different country & cities, I must say Oia is my favourite & unforgettable place! It is on my schedule for next summer, I will re-visit Oia again. . .what a wonderful place!
Santorini. . .you are truly romantic & beautiful, keep your charm!
zoekour 16 Sep 2008Oia SantoriniI feel so happy that I visited such a beautiful place. the sunset was amazing as was the place. Next time I visit Greece I will stay in Oia.
Peace, beauty, good food and tranquility. What else do you need? Santorini is really beautiful. Enjoy it if you ever get the chance to visit.
Michael_S 20 Jun 2007A dreamy sunsetHello, I'm Canadian and I'm 22 years old. In the summer of 2006 I visited Greece and the island of Santorini.
While I was there I decided to visit Oia, since it was recommended on a brochure, and on an internet site. I got there by car and it took me about 30 minutes since I was staying in Fira. The road to the village was a bit bumpy, but I really enjoyed the trip. I didn't have to use a map or anything, because it was perfectly indicated.
The village is picturesque with beautiful architecture and beautiful surroundings.
In the area someone can find telephone, bank, and mini market.
My favorite thing about it was the sunset.
