Rented a car for the day and just drove down roads we had not yet explored and came across this gem of a location. We got there a little before sunset which many people come out for. We were able to walk the small challenging...More

Rented a scooter during our stay and drove around the entire island. We came across this little beauty. Yes, you can drive with a scooter but you should feel comfortable driving on sand for a while. Just follow the map and you will find it....More

Best place to watch the sunset on Mykonos. Beautiful views over the sea and very little amount of people. Come here instead of going into the crowded city streets of Mykonos, you won't regret it!

It’s not about the views, it’s more about the history. If you love the Island and you want to preserve it as it is, you’ve got to come here and have a moment. It’s one of the few unspoiled places of the island. Far away...More

If the beautiful views aren’t enough, the drive here takes you through roads that remind you that there a still a few locals hiding away in Mykonos. We came before the sunset and were practically alone.

The lighthouse is situated at the top of the hill overlooking the Aegean Sea. The views are beautiful but the lighthouse itself is nothing special and poorly maintained. It is worth stopping here if you are driving past or want to stop for a picnic,...More

This is an old lighthouse north of the town of Mykonos. It offers amazing views of the harbour and town the west side of the island. Recommended as a nice viewing point and for beautiful pictures.

Great location to see sunset on Mykonos. The day I was there was little bit windy but fabulous to see how sun goes down. Just sit down and relax your mind. :)

Armenistis Lighthouse or Fanari, located on top of Mykonos Island, overlooking Agean sea. It is worth a trip, as the views are stunning. Beautiful in April, May when flowers blossoming. Not the best signed but can find. People do hike all the way up too.

A short ride from Mykonos to the north west edge of the island. Impressive silence and views, and smell of the blue flowers. We were watching the sunset there, not more than ten other people around. The lighthouse is abandoned and nothing special to look...More
