Oia, the traditional Settlement of Oia in Santorini

Situated on the northern tip of Santorini and built on a steep slope of the Caldera, Oia is the choice of the artists and romantics.

Oia is designated a traditional settlement in Santorini, and it is one of the best places to stay and party until dawn.

Oia is a romantic place because of its beautiful panoramas that tourists admire at the sunset.

What makes Oia famous are the sunsets because there is an absolute hush at the edge of the island, when the sun “falls” into the Aegean Sea and the tourists watch it in great numbers.

The traditional villages and villas (for example the deluxe Honeymoon Villas) make it the ideal place for the lovers.

They arrive here, because the heavenly panoramas of Santorini are as peaceful, relaxing and colorful as a soul of a lover is.

For them, each day brings a completely different view of the spectacular, fairy atmosphere that comes at sunset…

Most of the hotels perched on the cliffs of Oia and situated near the gulf offer sublime views, but the picturesque paintings are vividly depicted by the sun that “slips” between the cliffs, by the sunset that lies between the scattered islands around Santorini.

Romantic sunsets over Santorini

The island Santorini is one of the most beautiful Greek islands, mainly for its wonderful landscapes. What makes Santorini unique are the panoramas offered by the sun which “melts” every evening in the blue waters of the Aegean Sea. What eyes see and senses perceive cannot be put into words especially because one sunset panorama is not the same as the next.
