This is the place to be at to watch the sunset as it has the most stunning sunsets in the whole world. The summer sun just turns Oia’s whitewashed houses to those beautiful and mesmerizing hues of pink and orange. It’s a small town otherwise, which can be covered in a 30-minute walk.
This place has earned its distinction as Santorini’s top honeymoon spot. It is the smallest out of the three cities of Santorini and couples prefer it for the privacy it provides. Every hotel here has an infinity pool that offers an unparalleled and uninterrupted view of the Aegean Sea. Couples prefer to be in their hotels and enjoy the view in their very own company.
