“It's an awesome sight.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

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 on a blue table top. The lighthouse is rundown and there's no way to get inside, but who cares with that view.

“Excellent little find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

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.

“Worth the drive...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

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.

“Gorgeous view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

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.
