Oia, Village built on a cliff
It is litteraly built on a cliff (The Caldera). The houses, restaurants and hotels are built into niches carved into the cliff.
It is one of the most colorful and beautiful places that I have visited.
Due to its location in the west side of the island the sunsets are spectacular and that is one of the main attractions.
There is plenty of shops and outdoor restaurants, most of them offering a great sunset views.
The nearby beaches have black, volcanic sand.
Santorini is also known for being one of the largest wine producers in Greece.
Greek people are incredibly friendly.
I definitelly recommend visiting this beautiful island.
