Sunset Lighthouse Armenistis – Mykonos Excursions

Sunset Lighthouse Armenistis

The lighthouse or “Fanari” as locally known which translates to “Lantern” from Greek is standing like a sentinel over the Amenistis area and is a testimony to Mykonos’ maritime history. To reach the lighthouse we take the road from Agios Stefanos which offers the most spectacular views on the island just 6.5 km from Mykonos town. It was manufactured in 1891. The altitude of tower is 19 meters 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 that is located in a traditional building of 19th century, in centre of Mykonos, near to place Three Wells (Tria Pigadia). This place gives you a better view of the new port area of Mykonos and the beautiful scenery around it is breath taking. It makes the neighboring island of Tinos to look as if it is right next to you due to its strategic position. Visiting it gives you a good sense of the islands’ fascinating history combined with beauty.

The lighthouse, however, has not only has it been key in the maritime history of Mykonos and ensuring safe sea voyages in the waters around the island, it is also a striking beauty on an incredible site that attracts photographers and visitors from all over the world.It is also one of the best places on the island to go and take in the sunset, offering an endless image of sea and sky, unfolded in a stunning blaze of colour before your eyes.  So, if you are looking for spots to photograph, places to watch the sunset with a loved one, somewhere to take in sea views and breathe in salty air, somewhere remote and lovely, then you need look no further than Armenistis Lighthouse.
