Full description
Experience the old lighthouse, which stands like a sentinel over the Armenistis area and is a testimony to Mykonos' maritime history, while still remaining fully functional today. In order to visit the Armenistis lighthouse, take the road from Agios Stefanos. At the location of "Fanari" which translates to "lantern" in Greek, the scenic coastal road also offers some of the most spectacular views on the island just 6.5km from Mykonos Town.

Learn a lot of interesting facts about the light house, which was manufactured in 1891. The altitude of tower is 19 metres and the height of focal plane is 184 meters. The mechanism of the first lamp of "Armenistis" is exposed outside by the building of Aegean Naval Museum.

Visit the Armenistis lighthouse because of the breath-taking scenery around it. From there you can see all the boats arriving at and departing from Mykonos, while Tinos island looks as if it is right next to you. Its strategic position offers scenic views of the surrounding areas and is well worth visiting to get a sense of the island’s fascinating history and enjoy its spectacular beauty.

poor communication. The host rang the hotel and the hotel advised that we were not in that hotel. I find this strange, the host tried to re-arrange the excursion but we had other plans

Good chance to see a different side of Mykonos

It's a great trip to the highest point on Mykonos. There are some great views and the tour guide gave a fascinating back story. I would recommend.
