It offers a beautiful view just like everywhere in Akrotiri. If you appreciate nature, the sound of waves and cliffs, you’ll like it.

You can get similar views of the sunset from different locations within the island. If you haven’t been there, i suggest you go if you have enough time.

Plenty of places to sit on the rocks for unobstructed views of the sea and sunset. Pleasant experience watching ferries pass by waiting for the sun to disappear. Restricted parking - recommend hiring an ATV and using the torch on your phone. Romantic setting for...More

This lighthouse is simple but beautiful. It is not open for visitation, however you can walk around the site for free. I got there driving and didn't see public buses running to that site.

Drove over to the lighthouse from Oia. The ride was the best part of the trip. Small parking area near lighthouse, quick walk around on a path and you are directly in front of the Lighthouse. Nice view of the area. Decent photo opportunity. Certainly...More

We rented a car to drive around Santorini island to see with two kids, 9 & 12 yrs. It is fantastic view and good spot to take photo. Not crowded like town. Along the way it was also nice.

Spectacular views of cliffs and nice hiking place easy to park the car. We couldn't get in the lighthouse and we don't think it is open for public.

This really deserves more like a 3.5 than a 3. Some of the views in almost all directions are truly beautiful and photo-worthy. This spot gets a bit crowded at sunset, but it also offers an unobstructed view to enjoy the sunset. There are, however,...More
