Just ok
Oct. 2021
Lovely bay, very pretty but the walk down is awful.

The donkey owners do not control their donkeys, they were riding two up the cliff and one was ahead of them without a rider, it backed me up against a wall as it came to be pet. This was very traumatic and could have been avoided if the donkey was controlled better. The other donkeys are scattered down one straight of the cliff, you literally have to walk in zig zags behind donkeys (luckily they didn't kick) to get past them. There was an owner sat under a canopy with no care in the world.

Would highly recommend a taxi! However expect to pay at least 15 euro for a lift that is only a few minutes.

The bay is full of restaurants which is nice but make sure you booked prior to hike, would be awful to endure that walk and not get a table. Would recommend Amoudi Fish Tavern!

The worst part of it all, when you are trying to enjoy a nice evening meal, all the party catamarans park up for sunset - a shame this tainted our experience.

Best Dinner!
Oct. 2021
We had dinner at Dimitris and it was unbelievable. The setting right by the water was amazing. We ordered Sea Bream which they price by the pound. It was delicious. I could have eaten there several times during our stay. Definitely deserves all the hype!

Busy Harbor
Sep. 2021
This is a very picturesque, and very busy small boat and ferry harbor. It is surrounded by restaurants and shops.

From here you have a view of the cliffs and the windmills.

Nice bay, tough walk up the hill
Oct. 2021
Fun to walk down the hill to see this nice bay with many restaurants on the water. Walk around the rocks and enjoy the view of the ocean. Restaurants look great for seafood. Walk back up the hill isn't easy.

Gateway to Oia
Oct. 2021
To get to Oia, this is the way to arrive by boat (if you can get a ride up). Stay a bit as prices are lower in the many eateries and less crowded than Oia. Great watching all the small boats come and go

Worth the trek
Oct. 2021 • Family
A must if you visit Oia - we went down for dinner, especially charming at night to walk the winding steps by light, to get down to the illuminated port and enjoyed a lovely evening.

I really encourage to come by foot from the main road and go back up using the stairs - both ways are rewarding. the Bay is gorgeous and food does not disappoing in any of the restaurant

Very beautiful place
Oct. 2021 • Couples
We stayed 3 nights in Ammoudi Bay and we enjoyed it from the beginning til the end. It’s very authentic and romantic. Colors are beautiful and smell of fish restaurant is adding another dimension to this great place. It’s true that it’s at the bottom of Oia so not easy to access more especially if you can’t easily walk. We got used to take the donkeys to climb the 250 stairs. Donkeys and their owners are very nice. They respect their animals and it’s also a great experience to have. Not sure why many sites discourage experiencing this we loved it and never noticed anything bad towards the animals.
