General Description

Hop onto this trip to Armenistis Lighthouse in northwestern Mykonos! Travel through beautiful settings and learn interesting details about the island’s naval past.

This expedition lasts 1 hour and includes a live tour guide for all English speakers. You will be transferred to/from your hotel or the port, so there is no need to worry about how to reach the tour destination.

You will take a slightly uphill road from Agios Stefanos towards the lighthouse while traveling through all kinds of majestic scenery! The old lighthouse, standing like a guardian over the Armenistis area, has been a trademark of Mykonos since 1891 and is also fully functional to this day. It is 19 meters tall, and the small hill it is situated on provides a focal plane of 184 meters. This viewpoint makes visitors think that the neighboring island of Tinos is right next to the shore!

Except for gazing at gorgeous views over the island, a visit to the lighthouse is also a unique opportunity to learn about Mykonos’ extensive maritime history, as well as everything regarding this watchtower. You may also discover more about the mechanism of the lighthouse’s first lamp by visiting the Aegean Maritime Museum in Mykonos town.
