The lighthouse stands on a high rock above the sea. You can enjoy the view to Tinos, Delos and small inselets around Mykonos. In April there are so many flowers around it. We came there on Sunset, it was fantastic! Unfortunately very windy up there, so take warm clothes.
There are two roads to the lighthouse. One of them - near the coastline - is marked on the map as "wide" and the other one - on the hilltops - as "narrow". My advise is to take the hilltop road since it is almost empty (at least in April) and relatively flat. The side road between the coastal "wide" road and the lighthouse is extremely up-and-down, not for week nerves :)

It was quite an adventure to get here because I took some wrong turns (but what is wrong when you are on holiday). The way up was more spectactular than the lighthouse itself. Could use some paint.

Took a scooter ride here to experience the other end of the island. Beautiful and peaceful place to sit and have a snack, like grapes, from the fella at the end of the road selling fruit. Worth a visit if you have time to kill.

Built in 1891, the Armenistis Lighthouse is situated on the northern tip of Mykonos, overlooking the strait that separates the island of Tinos from Mykonos. Due to its high elevation, the location provides panoramic views. We had a sea level view of the lighthouse perched over the cliffs as our cruise ship left port. I’m not sure how long it would take to drive here from Mykonos Town, but I bet it would be worth the effort! Note that this is still a working lighthouse, standing guard over the island.

We drove up to the lighthouse with lunch, for a picnic, and it was great ! Super windy, and daftly dangerous - you can slide for a few hundred metres down to the rocky ocean below ! The kids loved it, obviously.... We didn't go in to the lighthouse, but walked around it, it's rocky and there are lots of little paths, and huge rocks to sit on and take in the breathtaking, far reaching views. It was really fantastic. And there were at least two, big-horned black yaks wandering about freely.... They are well camouflaged... but they're there ! Parking is super easy.
