Oia & Finikia​
(pronounced IA)

Oia is probably the most famous and well known village of Santorini.
It is renowned for watching the infamous Santorini sunset and being one of the most picturesque villages. Perched on top of the cliff side with an amazing view of the volcano Palia & Nea Kameni as well as Thirassia. The views from here can put the small size of the island into perspective.
On a clear day you can see the most southern point of the island.
Oia has a more traditional feel with its narrow streets and the architecture of houses and hotels.
There are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants to be found wondering around the pretty streets.
The entrance to the village by road is quite narrow and the main parking can be easily found.
Oia can be a quieter village than Fira during the day time, however at sunset it becomes extremely busy especially in the high season. So if you are looking for that special romantic sunset meal be sure to book in advance.
300 steps down from Oia is the small port of Ammoudi with its fishing boats and waterside fresh fish tavernas. There is a small path that winds around, taking you to a swimming/diving area.
Fancy a trip to Thirassia? You can take the boat over from Ammoudi.

Finikia is a small traditional village close to Oia; a well preserved village where you will find some of the traditional cave houses of Santorini.
There are a few hotels and shops in this area, however here you will find that you can take in that famous sunset without the crowds of Oia.
Finika is 2.1km / 1.3miles (7minutes) South of Oia.
