A tour at the lighthouse


For the second year and on the occasion of the World Lighthouse Day, the Navy opens to the public the lighthouses in 23 regions of the country, among them our very own Lighthouse of Akrotiri! You will have the unique opportunity to be informed about the importance of lighthouses and other navigational aids in sailing from 10.00 to 20.00.
After the tour, you can enjoy the sunset from the lighthouse which is very impressive and charming. The view to the Aegean Sea, the beautiful building of the lighthouse and the profile of the “Indian” which appears at the black rock on the right of the lighthouse, who looks at the sea, are a perfect combination for some very interesting photographs.

The lighthouse is located in the SW part of the island. To get there, turn right before you enter the village of Akrotiri and follow the road alongside the caldera.
