Akrotiri Lighthouse | Santorini

Updated: Dec 6, 2019

The lighthouse of Akrotiri is one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece. Dated from 1892, standing in the south peninsula of the island, the best time to visit it is during the sunset.

At night, it lights a radiant white at intervals of 20 seconds, reaching out to the sea for about 24 nautical miles.


The lighthouse, which was most probably built by a French trading company at the end of the 19th century, has a square shape tower that emerges above 10 meters from the warden’s house.


Before the start of electricity in 1988, the lighthouse was operating with petrol.
