It was really hard to reach this abandoned but charming lighthouse! It was a challenging experience to drive all those winding road so steep and dusty. But eventually we made it and walked till the very end of the peak where we enjoyed a stunning sunset!!! Recommended..."only for the brave"!!

We stayed close to this lighthouse and so went for a look, but the roads up to the lighthouse are slightly worse for wear, beautiful views of Mykonos harbour and the surrounding area from the road, well worth a visit Good luck Tony

It has a good view but nothing much. The lighthouse is abandoned so there is nothing to see besides the view and the road to get there is in a very bad condition.

Small engine 4 wheeler, barely made it up some of the hills with the mrs and I (i'm the heaviest at 155 lbs). Bounce around on the dirt and bumpy roads but once you get to the top and walk around the lighthouse you get some great views. hardly anyone there.

While this is a bit off the beaten path, it is something you should see when visiting Mykonos. You will have to take a 4 wheeler or car to get there. The view all the way around the lighthouse is something you will never forget. The road up to the lighthouse will give you views of Mykonos that are breathtaking... More

You have to visit the lighthouse. The view from up there is just breathtaking. The road is a bit dirty but only a few meters before you reach the spot.

1. If you're intrepid, have a go. A little hire car will make it up fine, we got an Astra up there with no problems. It's rough, but take it slow and pick your line. 2. Take something which can shoot panoramic photos. 3. Have an appreciation for slightly crumbling majestic buildings. 4. It's still a lighthouse. It's been electrified,... More

We drove to the old lighthouse, we did not know it was no longer in use and were surprised to see it all rusty and abandoned. We walked around the outside and enjoyed the views. As it was springtime there were lots of wild flowers coming out and butterflies and the odd lizard sunning them self's on the warm rocks.... More

The trip up to the Armenistis Lighthouse was very cool and wound us through a few little towns. the drive provided great views of Mykonos Town and the ports along the shore. The lighthouse is abandoned but it is still a substantial structure. We really enjoyed the ride and the views once we got there.
