You will take the best pictures of your visit to Mykonos in this place. The lighthouse is abandoned, can't go inside, but it's definitely worth to drive to it and enjoy the views of the island.

The lighthouse is a drive from the coast (maybe around 20-25 min from Mykonos town) but it's worth it. It's nice to see and the view from up there is stunning. So lots of options for beautiful pics. But it's a very short and quick visit, nothing else up there.

A bit of a drive but worth it, lovely surrounding for those who are into photography. Take your time and enjoy. Get a wind blocker jacket sometimes its quit windy and cold.

We rode an ATV to find this gem! Which I would recommend a car or one person per ATV :) the views and wind at high noon were worth the adventure for sure!

You must rent an ATV when visiting as it is the best way to get around and see the sites! Stay to the right!! Always! The locals are crazy drivers and pass on curves!! Use Pegasus as you can park it there at night as parking in town is very limited! The drive to the lighthouse is lots of fun!... More

It takes about 15 mins drive from Mykonos town to get up to the light house and, the views are lovely, but get there a good 15 mins before sunset as the sun disappears behind the neighbouring island before it hits the horizon. It is obviously well visited as the immediate surroundings look a bit tired and well worn. Very... More

Took our scooter we had rented for the day up here. Some steep and winding switchbacks but worth the view! Absolutely beautiful view of the island and it's surrounding islands. Couldn't go in the lighthouse, but you can see why it's placed where it is.
