A must if you go to Santorini is walking the streets of this beautiful town. You can get close using the bus that leaves from the capital, Thira, or rent a car to explore the rest of the island (45.00 € a Hyundai i10 for the whole day). You also have the option of a quad with which you can feel the warm air of the island on your skin. Once in Oia all you have to do is walk through the streets, either following the main street or strolling through the intricate web that form the streets and where you will meet impossible terraces over the sea and small houses with doors and windows brightly colored and adorned with plants which will relax your mind. Also you can visit the many shops and flooding the village where you will find beautiful craft crafts and jewelry. Totally recommended, before leaving the village, is to take a cold beer at any of the inns that hang over the side to continue the visit to Santorini with new strength! I'm sure someday I'll heard it is pending to see with my own eyes, remarkable sunsets!
In the summer of the year 2012 I had the chance to visit Santorini, in Greece, in the Aegean Sea. I was already aware that it would be one of the most lovely islands that Greece has, but to arrive and be there, not only reaffirmed what I already knew but it was one of the most lovely places I had been in my life. Being there, just let yourself enjoy the beauty that surrounds you from the tiniest to the biggest corner. Its architecture and white contrast make a perfect combination with the blue of the sky and the sea that surrounds it. Being there inevitably calls romance, the dream,and enjoyment. All this is just why most couples from Europe, Asia and other continents choose this little paradise for marriage, as the environment is seen and felt in this place is romantic and marvelous. In Oia, a small town of the island we can see one of the most beautiful sunsets, with a range of stunning colors. Santorini is definitely and will always be the best destination for anyone whose goal is to enjoy beauty at its best
The huge bay that forms the island of Santorini called attention, especially if you get to the island by boat. The dimensions of the cliffs of the bay are incredible, but it is less a sense of being, deep within the caldera of a volcano. We know that the island of Santorini experienced one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in history over 3500 years ago. By then flourished on the island one of the first European civilizations, the Minoan culture. This eruption whose effects were noted around the globe, launched into the air, leaving a huge crater that was filled by the Aegean Sea, forming one of the world's most incredible islands. One is left speechless in Santorini. The views from the top of it leaves you in awe from its cliffs. I love the feeling perceived from the village of Oia, which is at the top of the boiler. From there, the ocean is so far away that it gives the feeling of being over the true Mediterranean. By the way, the volcano of Santorini is still active and the island has undergone many eruptions and earthquakes from the cataclysm of antiquity. Part of it can be seen from the small island of volcanic origin that is right in the middle of the bay. This island has been growing slowly over centuries to reach its current size.
I propose a very exotic mix...Beach, Diving, Clifsf, Taverns, Boats, Sun, Mountains and Adrenaline ... All in 1 place. It is one of the nicest places I've had as a kid. It's called Amoudi beach and it is below the town of Oia. It is notable for having excellent fish tavernas and fantastic coffee. The landscape is incredible, the shading contrasts with volcanic mountains rocks by the ocean. You can access the drive by the old pumice mines. It is a perfect place to go with a diving mask and watch the ocean. There is also a cliff about 7 m high from which people jump off of (even the little ones)! It is an amazing adrenaline rush!. This place is not a beach itself because it has no sand but there is a stone esplanade in which you can put a towel. Anyway, here are the photos to enjoy and I encourage you to come to one of the most romantic and beautiful Greek islands, Santorini.
Undoubtedly, the arrival on the island of Santorini by ferry is one of the most memorable experiences you´ll have aboard a boat. It is a beautiful trip and if the sea is calm, you can enjoy stunning views of the Santorini caldera and really appreciate the enormity of its size and apparent recklessness of the two most famous towns (Oia and Thira) hanging from a cliff. Santorini, from the distance, seems to be fun of white, snow-covered houses that are typical in the Cyclades. During the journey from Folegandros, we were fortunate to be accompanied by a group of dolphins which are said to bring good luck to the accompanying ships. We had an unforgettable experience on the island of Santorini.
The Orthodox Cathedral of the town of Oia is one of those places that give off such a sense of peace and spirituality that it is hard to forget. All the Orthodox churches have that atmosphere and I personally find it fascinating. The church is in the middle of the village, on the main street where tourists throng at sunset to get their photo of the sun falling over the Aegean Sea, and there are almost no visitors. So it is a place to find some peace in the tumult of Oia.
Oia is a very impressive city with many things to do and see. This city has is surrounded by beautiful scenery that unfolds before your eyes and show you all of its charm and friendliness there is to offer. The streets are filled with typical white houses and blue rooftops. There are small, narrow streets speckled with balconies that are covered in flowers. Getting lost in the city and gazing all around is an attraction in itself.
However if you want more things to do in Oia, there are other places to visit in Oia like the Maritime Museum, where you can see a lot of nautical instruments, shipping documents, watercolors, parts of boats, and a small library. There is also Thirassia, a small island just opposite the city that remains unspoiled and full of nature. You can reach this island by boat.
Another one of the things to see in Oia is its beautiful sunsets. It is a spectacle in the city, and people often feel compelled to applaud. As for more attractions in Oia, you can bounce around the city, take a boat ride or enjoy a Greek dish called moussaka. This is a delicious stew that is made with eggplant, cinnamon, wine, and meat.
