It's a interesting drive up the winding and narrow hilly path. But the sight is worth it! The wind was strong as we went in end of Oct. the sky was a little grey and misty, making the the lighthouse a little mysterious! The vast space around with the wind blowing, I love it!

Panoramic views and great photo opportunities, but quite a trek if you insist on walking instead of driving.

The best view on Mykonos, but not go there a windy day. It´s on this Place you take the best photos.

This lighthouse is no longer in use. Its location is not far from Mykonos Town. Very windy. The lighthouse is not open to visitors. Not the most visually appealing lighthouse we have ever seen. We were given 45 minutes here which was more than enough time.

The Myconian Lighthouse called Armenistis is worth visiting cause the scenery around it. From there you may see all the boats arriving and departing Mykonos. Tinos Island looks like next to you from there. The Lighthouse Armenistis is at the northeast of the island and approximately 7Km away from Mykonos Town. This Lighthouse was manufactured in 1891. The altitude of... More

I fell in love with the view. We rented a bike and drove to the lighthouse for sunset. It was super awesome and romantic. The best views in Mykonos. Just a note of caution- there are no restrooms there..

Steep slopes and poor access. Unattended and off the beaten track. Most beautiful from a distance. Very windy September.

Beautiful location to watch the sunset at the northern point of the island. We were lucky enough to visit on a less windy day and enjoyed the view with a picnic! There are a few walking trails and you're able to pull up your car very close to the lighthouse so it is suitable for all.

You will need a car. It`s trick to get there so go with a gps. Worth a visit! With a wonderful view we took many pictures of the island and the blue sea.
