Santorini Undeniable Oia Sunset 4-H Tour; Over the centuries, the beauty and charm of this island have been enchanted by philosophers, scientists, artists, poets, writers, and intellectuals. Santorini has always been an awe-inspiring island for visitors, due to its unique landscape and architecture.
Oia is a traditional Cycladic village built on the top of a cliff. Every afternoon hundreds of people go to the Castle of Oia to admire the view of the sunset and take pictures. Getting there, you will see people from all over the world and hear more languages than ever. Everyone is holding a camera and taking photos of the unique landscape.
The highlight of Santorini Undeniable Oia Sunset 4-H Tour
- 4-hour Undeniable Oia Sunset
- Walk The Alleyways Of Oia
- Admire the blue-domed churches in Oia at sunset
- The famous Castle of Oia
Saint George’s Church of Oia
In the early evening, arrive at the cliff-top village of Oia with its famous blue-domed churches. Embark on a walk from Saint George’s Church in the most peaceful part of Oia. Learn about Oia´s glorious maritime past and admire elegant captains’ mansions and cave-like houses along the way.
The castle of Oia
Once at the bustling castle area, enjoy some free time to take some photos, shop, or have a relaxing drink. Finally, watch an incredible sunset before meeting up with your guide opposite Platsani Church.
The sunset and crowds
Oia’s sunset is magnificent, the background of the picturesque caldera with its white and blue houses and the windmills. Nevertheless, this is not the most romantic location. The crowds in the castle are insane, and you need to get there 2-3 hours before sunset if you want to find a good spot for photos. People flock to the terraces, the alleys, and the walk sides.
If you do not want to be around that many people, you can walk to the east of Oia towards the churches with the blue domes. There are some less crowded spots on this site, and the view is equally good.
It is now time to board the vehicle. A relaxing evening journey comes to the end with drop-off back at the same spot we have picked you up!
- Summer is the driest time but storms can occur year-round. April to October is the best season period to visit. July and August is the best time for partying.
- Most people visit Santorini during the popular summer high season, but you’ll enjoy the island no matter when you go. In May till August, everything’s open and heaving with holidaymakers. Special events like concerts and exhibitions appeal to the masses. However the months before and after are also rewarding as beaches and tavernas are less thronged yet everything is open and the weather and water temps are lovely.
- The best time to relax, and visit Santorini is from September to October and April to May when the weather is warm and the crowds are scarce. April and late in October, some businesses may be closed. Like all of the Cyclades, Santorini welcomes the most visitors during the summer, so you’ll need to make your reservations months in advance if you plan on visiting anytime from June through August.
- Try winter, when room rates tend to plummet. Keep in mind that this season’s average highs only reach the 50s (not good for sunbathing) and the region sees plenty of precipitation. However, all that rain does make for a very flowery (and warm) spring season. Crowds will be at a low in the spring as well, though tourists will begin invading the islands come May.
- Away from the touristy months from May to October, religious feast days dominate island life with families enjoying day-long outings and festivities.
