A magical sunset overlooking the caldera
Oia is a picturesque town that overlooks the famous caldera (water-filled crater) where some speculate the lost city of Atlantis stood before sinking into the sea. Oia’s white-washed Cycladic cave buildings and cliff-side location on the northern tip of the island makes it the best place to admire the sun set over the Aegean. Visitors not staying on the caldera should arrive early to stake out a prime spot near the fortress or windmill—the crowds can get hectic, but the scenery is magical.
