Prayer Facilities

Just like any other attraction in the town of Oia, the Naval Museum does not have prayer facilities for Muslim visitors. There are also no mosques or Islamic Centres in Oia. Muslims visiting the museum will therefore have to return to their hotel rooms at prayer times, if unable to locate a secluded place outdoors to offer their prayers.  

Halal Food

The Naval Museum of Oia is not known to house a food outlet. Visitors will however be able to get a bite to eat one of the restaurants and cafés in town. While Muslim tourists will not find any Halal certified dining establishments, there are sure to be many that serve only suitable vegetarian and seafood dishes.
