OIA

24.4.19

Almost 4 months later and here we are!

Punctual as ever 😉

I’m back to tell you all about our fourth day in Santorini which was spent in Oia, a coastal town on the northwestern tip of the island.

As soon as we arrived, we came across the famous Atlantis Books which had been voted one of the best bookshops in the world.

Unfortunately it was closed on the day that we visited but luckily we rounded the corner and stumbled across a rather bougie market for a spot of window shopping (minus the windows).

We’d researched about Ammoudi Bay before visiting because FOOD so we trekked down towards the water in search of fresh seafood!

While James attempted to not slip down the steps in his Toms or get attacked by the many donkeys that we passed, I admired the views of whitewashed houses carved into the rugged clifftops, overlooking a vast caldera filled with water (which were still beautiful despite the crap weather).

We made it!

The restaurants in Ammoudi Bay.

We opted for Dmitris Ammoudi Taverna as it was the busiest and we were lucky enough to get the last table by the water!

Our light lunch (ahem) consisted of calamari, fried aubergines, oysters and the best seafood linguine I’ve ever had in my life and, trust me, I’ve had A LOT of them!

MY ONE TRUE LOVE.

After lunch, we went for a little wander around the bay to burn off a few calories…

…before making our walk back up into the town centre.

Although Oia is where most people imagine when they think of Santorini, with its iconic blue and white domed buildings all over Instagram, we think that the weather wasn’t really on our side in properly showing off Oia’s beauty so decided to revisit on a sunnier day!
