The cape is full of beautiful wild flowers purple, blue, yellow and green, the lighthouse is old and rusted but to go and be there is one nice experience, although the day we went was one of those really very windy day, but we survived!

Take the trouble to visit this lighthouse, which is on the northern side of the island away from most of the more popular tourist areas. The scenery along the way and upon arrival will make the time spent worthwhile.

It's a interesting drive up the winding and narrow hilly path. But the sight is worth it! The wind was strong as we went in end of Oct. the sky was a little grey and misty, making the the lighthouse a little mysterious! The vast space around with the wind blowing, I love it!

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.

The Myconian Lighthouse called Armenistis is worth visiting cause the scenery around it. From there you may see all the boats arriving and departing Mykonos. Tinos Island looks like next to you from there. The Lighthouse Armenistis is at the northeast of the island and approximately 7Km away from Mykonos Town. This Lighthouse was manufactured in 1891.

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..
