This spot sits up high in Mykonos and looks out to the water pretty much everywhere. Nothing to do here, but if you are into scenic spots, this is a must see.

On the North/West Cape of Mykonos Island the poor old lighthouse has seen better days !! We rode (@ walked) our under powered Quad Bike up the winding roads and dodged death with both the locals & the road conditions. The Lighthouse is derelict but was being painted on our visit (looked like community service ?) but the view is... More

We arrived on a very windy day in Mykonos in the month of Oct. Once we rented the car, the first destination suggested by the Car rent guys were to head to this northern most tip of the island - The Armenistis Lighthouse. The drive to this place is not a great one, but once I got there, it was... More

I rented a scooter and rode it to the lighthouse. It was a cool ride, very curvy and interesting, climbing (one way so also steep descent). Worth the ride and I wished I'd brought a picnic because the view could be enjoyed for hours. Very windy up there so it would be nice on a warm day. You can see... More

This lighthouse is located right on the northern tip of the island and has a great panoramic view of the adjacent islands.he road there is a bit winding and the homes in the area would appear to be expensive.

We hired a car to visit the lighthouse, and drove via Houlakia beach (beach with rocks not sand on Mykonos). We drove all the way along the coast, through Ag. Stefanos. The views via this road however, were breathtakingly beautiful, of Chora and surrounds. Great photos. Then we drove up a dirt road (marked white on tourist map) and to... More

After a long and stoney, muddy roads we reached out the eye of Mykonos to Armenistis Lighthouse. We were so lucky to catch the sunset. It was marvelous... The view from Lighthouse was just amazing. You should go there to watch the sunset or sunrise. Definetly you will need a vehicle to reach out there.

If you imagine a gorgeous building you'll remain disappointed. If you seek a pleasant view about old running building which has a particular charm, you can enjoy amazing sunset and made nice pictures even in the night. Be careful about the road in some stretch of it. Near the lighthouse the road ending and for 300 mt ( or so... More

Beautiful outpost in the Fanari area of Mykonos. The structure itself is a bit dilapidated (though we're told it's scheduled for refurbishment in 2016). You can't actually enter the lighthouse itself, but the ground around it provide breath-taking views, best at sunset, where you can see several of the other islands and much of Mykonos. Some people also brough their... More

Absolute a must when you come to Mykonos. I go there every time. The view is stunning, the wind can be rough. Sit there and relax.
