An evening at Amoudi Bay, Santorini

“You have to put some additional efforts to explore the hidden gems of a place”, this holds completely true for this nice hideout near Oia, Santorini called Amoudi Bay.

You will have to burn some calories and take 250 steps down from famous Oia castle to reach Amoudi Bay which is a secluded place, far from the tourists in Oia and offers multiple options to spend a nice evening.

Great Food

It has couple of great restaurants which serves variety of awesome food. We randomly picked one and every dish we ordered was great with super fast service. You order food and with blink of an eye, your order is on the table (ok, this is a bit of exaggeration but service was fast).

In the end Bakalava for the deserts

Great spot to watch the sunset

This is one offbeat option to watch the sunset instead of famous sunset point, Oia Castle. If you are looking for a less crowded place for sunset view, this is definitely your place.

Swimming and Cliff Jumping

Once you reach Amoundi Bay, you need to take a left and follow a small trail to reach another great spot facing St. Nicholas (a very small island nearby). We almost missed this place; we asked a waiter about the trail going on left out of curiosity, as we saw couple of people coming from that side and voila we found another great place in our trip.

The small island in top is St. Nicholas

You can swim from mainland to St. Nicholas which is the only way to reach, unfortunately both of us (my wife and I ) don’t know swimming but there were couple of crazy travellers there who were ready to experiment with the adrenaline rush.

Although, it was a bit difficult to climb all those 250 stairs to get back, but it was all worth it. If you are one lazy soul, you can ask the restaurant to call a cab for you which can take you back to Oia for about 10 euros (yes, for once we considered this option but later discarded it and decided to climb up).
