It's worth the trip just for the view. You end up on a cliffside looking south down toward the old town of Mykonos and northwest across the sea to the neighboring island of Tinos. Below you see vast stretches of the Aegean, running off toward other islands, the sea dotted with what look to be toy boats dodging cotton balls... More

This is worth the trip if only for the views and to see the gorgeous real estate nearby! We sneaked inside and loved seeing something so rustic. Would recommend.

The view of the surrounding island is worth the trip to the Lighthouse. The road there is a bit winding and the homes in the area would appear to be expensive.

The only way to get there is by car or moto. It is isolated but the views from this spot are fantastic. You can stay contemplating the inmensity of the aegean sea.

Visited this as last spot on an ATV tour of the island. If you haven't had a good view of Mykonos town then definitely come here, especially towards sunset, but the lighthouse itself is just a dilapidated building. Tip: Don't trust Google maps to get you there!

Well, its just a lighthouse. We drove part of the way and hiked up the rest as the car didn't seem to have the power to make it up the hill. The views are great from the location, but there is little else to do there. The lighthouse is just an old lighthouse.

The scenery is spectacular here and worth the drive on rugged roads. Once you get there you will be glad you went. My favorite place in all of Mykonos.

We got there by ATV, the road was a little bumpy but it was worth it. The lighthouse itself needs some repairs, but the view from the top is very nice, especially at sunset. At first i thought we were the only ones there, but as the sunset was approaching, more and more were coming. Bring some food/juice along as... More

The views were amazing, I even walked down about 100m past the lighthouse to the (somewhat dangerous) rock cliffs. The actual lighthouse is in very poor condition, with rust everywhere and broken windows. We rented scooters, so the ride up there was very nice but would I do it again? Not really sure. Views were really nice though
