It is a pity that you can only see the lighthouse from outside. If you rent a car I think it is a good idea to visit this area. Great view. You can drive another road back to town so you don´t have to go the same way back.

It's a long haul up to this lighthouse by foot and the drive by road up (and down) an unconsolidated deeply rutted dirt track has to be taken slowly. Photos on this site show that not very long ago this was a cared for landmark. With the new technology of maritime safety, this light is no longer needed and has... More

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
