A place of romantic sunsets and traditional taverns, Amoudi Bay sits just below the small port town of Oia. After a swim in the Aegean, scramble up the bay's red cliffs to take in sweeping views of the sea and the coastline, dotted by tiny beaches attracting water lovers from around the world. The bay gets extremely crowded by mid-afternoon, so try to arrive as early in the day as possible. It's best to spend the first part of the afternoon exploring the bay's many seafood restaurants, leaving plenty of time to find a good spot for watching the sunset near the water or up on the cliffs.

The food was good however a little pricey. But the main reason for my poor ratting was the staff behaviour: We choose that restaurant for the sunset. When we approach the staff and ask for a good table for the sunset they told us that all tables are reserved expect one that was nor so good for the purpose. For our surprise, at the end of the dinner, there was plenty of free tables with a much better view for sunset. It was no good
There really isn't anything there except 5 overpriced seafood restaurants. There is no way to get back up other than the stairs of death, the roadway of death or the donkeys. No taxis at all. Trust me, you don't want to take the donkeys. Fortunately for us, a nice young Greek man took pity on us and have us a ride back up to Oia. I don't know how long it would have taken us otherwise.
