If you come to Oia, seeing the sun set into the Aegean Sea is an absolute bucket list item. Get to the per by no later than 7:15p, as the crowds are pretty dense.

Don't even bother getting an early spot (if you're not sitting at a Cafe) - everybody will eventually squeeze their way into your "spot" seeing as there is only so much space to view the sunset, especially in peak season. Not even the crowded walkways...More

The afternoon boat trip to volcano and Thirassia includes sunset view. It is another option to that of the bus trip to view sunset at Oia.

The most famous sunset in the world. If you visit Oia, then you have to see it.Go early because there are a lot of people.

Try to get there a little earlier as it tends to get crowded so you won't find a good spot to view the sunset, especially in tourist season. Definitely worth it, a truly humbling experience, great pictures and extremely beautiful views.

You have to see it at least once in your life. You can admire how the nature is beautiful. I would suggest to go in couple ;)

The sunset is good viewed from Oia if you like crowds!!! We stayed in Imerovigli and by far the best sunsets we saw were from here not only less people but the backdrops are stunning.
