At the foot of Oia, dug into the red volcanic rock and beside the crystal clear waters of St Nikolas Peramataris, lies the cinematic backdrop of Ammoudi. There was the main port of Oia during 19th and 20th century and all trade activities were taking place in this beautiful port. Today Ammoudi is one of the most well hidden gems of the island and one of the best places to enjoy the sunset and a really tasty lunch or dinner.
You can reach Ammoudi coming down the 214 steps starting from Oia’s castle or from the coastal road that connects Ammoudi with the rest of the island. Oia’s castle is one of the best spots, definately the most famous, to enjoy the magic of the sunset. During summer months hundreds of tourists are coming here to watch the unique views at the sunset that Oia’s castle offers. In addition a perfect day in Ammoudi can be enriched with swimming at the crystal clear waters of St Nikolas and a few hours rest at the small bay.
Sunset Taverna is located in the picturesque Ammoudi, just below Oia, just 17 km from the airport, 12 km form the port and 8 km from Fira, the capital of Santorini.
