This old lighthouse is a great spot from which to view the sunset. The Lighthouse has recently been renovated and offers some refreshments. The road to the Lighthouse is pretty rough so allow plenty of time for the journey.

Not only do you get fantastic view there is also a great smell from the fresh herbs underfoot. Don’t miss the chance to visit this spot while you are on Gavdos. You can see the island of Crete on the horizon, and then once the sun has gone down the stars come out and because this is such a remote spot you can clearly see the Milky Way.
