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

Forget Oia and Fira for the sunset head for the lighthouse Akrotiri, you will get a spectacular view with nothing in the way. You will need to park and walk as spaces are limited, walk is on an incline and then over some rocks so...More

Ok if you are a new age worshipper. But the sunset can be seen from that whole side of the island no need to climb rocks below a pretty common building and endure wind and dust !
