View from the top.

Panoramic views and great photo opportunities, but quite a trek if you insist on walking instead of driving.

The best view on Mykonos, but not go there a windy day. It´s on this Place you take the best photos.

This lighthouse is no longer in use. Its location is not far from Mykonos Town. Very windy. The lighthouse is not open to visitors. Not the most visually appealing lighthouse we have ever seen. We were given 45 minutes here which was more than enough time.

I fell in love with the view. We rented a bike and drove to the lighthouse for sunset. It was super awesome and romantic. The best views in Mykonos. Just a note of caution- there are no restrooms there..

Steep slopes and poor access. Unattended and off the beaten track. Most beautiful from a distance. Very windy September.

Beautiful location to watch the sunset at the northern point of the island. We were lucky enough to visit on a less windy day and enjoyed the view with a picnic! There are a few walking trails and you're able to pull up your car very close to the lighthouse so it is suitable for all.

You will need a car. It`s trick to get there so go with a gps. Worth a visit! With a wonderful view we took many pictures of the island and the blue sea.

Rent a bike or small car since the access road are a bit narrow, we came directly from Ftelia and have to endure longer trip on dodgy road, but on the way out we reach the main access road of Mykonos in about 15 min.
