The 3 km long asphalt road starting at the entrance of the village, will take you to the promontory at the westernmost tip of the island (it also leads to Red-Kokkini-beach). There you will see the lighthouse and enjoy the spectacular view -especially if you arrive at sunset. Built in 1892 by a French company, the lighthouse of Akrotiri is considered one of the most beautiful in the Cyclades. The height of its tower is 10 m. It was renovated in 1925, was shut down during World War II, then resumed operation in 1945. The lighthouse was fully automated since 1988. In the south there is an anchorage protected by northerly winds.
