Akrotiri Lighthouse is a 19th-century sightseeing wonder, located just 18-kilometres away from Fira (Santorini’s capital). It was originally built back in 1892, making it one of the oldest lighthouses in the whole of Greece!
The white-washed walls of this beautiful and powerful infrastructure rise above the rocky cliffs, reaching towards the warm, blue skies. So, make sure you grab your camera beforehand because you’ll want to capture snaps from every angle.
There’s no public access inside the actual building. Don’t worry, though; you can admire this site from afar. In fact, you can get a good glimpse of it when you sit on the surrounding stone wall or sea rocks. Then, simply embrace the breathtaking scenery of the lighthouse itself and the nearby landscape.
Why not visit just before sunset? That way, you can unwind as you watch the sun sink into the sky, which is what many locals choose to do, too!
