Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
One of the oldest lighthouses in Greece, Akrotiri LightHouse still stands as a sentinel on Santorini. A French trading company built the square structure in 1892 and operated it with oil, but the beacon switched to electricity in 1988. Wear closed-toed shoes to safely climb the rocky hill, and when you're finished, consider a meal at one of the surrounding fish taverns. Bring your camera to take advantage of the many photo ops here, which are especially gorgeous at sunset. Using our custom trip planner, Akrotiri attractions like Akrotiri LightHouse can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It is the most beautiful place Santorini's determined to see the sunset, but the place is very windy and very dusty. The view is beautiful, and I will not forget it longer.

  • 没想到在这里关日落会是这么浪漫有不可思议的经验! 在oia 观了四天的日落无意间来到这里,原本就想来这里拍几张照片就跑了,但是就被黄昏的景色深深的吸引了! 拍了好多好多照片!夕阳掉下海是就不懂为什么就涌起一股感动!太微妙了.... 
  • Come for the almost 360° ocean and caldera view, not necessarily the lighthouse. The lighthouse itself is not worth the trip out here, but the view, wow! Free parking nearby and a very short hike over moderate terrain will get you to some excellent viewing areas. Many locals and regulars comment that the sunset is better here than at Oia. Many sailboats go by just around sunset, making for good photo ops.
  • Nice views of the caldera and the sea, this is the extrem point of the island. Very beautiful views.
  • Nothing special, slightly awkward to get in front of the lighthouse. It's worth seeing if you have your own vehicle, but not as a tour.
  • Another beautiful sunset location. A must see and it's not as busy or expensive to explorer.
  • Nice sunset view spot! Not so many people and it's free.
