It's at the very tip of the island and you can't even see it until you walk quite close to it (approx. 3 km walk). The environment there is quite desolate: the vegetation is scarce, there are no trees in the peninsula and it's very windy. Judging from the stone towers / pyramids left by tourists who visit there, I guess that not many people make it to the lighthouse - there are quite a lot of stone pyramids in the first kilometer but just a few at the very lighthouse. :D

From the parking place on the Prasonici beach you need to take about 20-30 minutes long walk to Lighthouse Prasonisi. In total whole trip (to lighthouse and back) is 5.5 km long with about 130m upclimb. First you need to pass a sand belt connecting the peninsula with lighthouse with mainland, followed by two upclimbs and descents before reaching lighthouse. I recommed to have proper footwear and some drink - especially in summer it can be very hot. The whole peninsula, especially both elevated places offers nice views (also to Prasonici beach) and around lighthouse Prasonisi it is very peaceful and quiet.

A place of fantastic natural beauty, with a like of sand between two beautiful beaches that lead to a small hill and the lighthouse on it. Both beaches are perfect for the surfers, as they said. We got to the hill and enjoyed the most liberating view of vastness, blue all around, clear blue sky, deep blue waters and a wind that sounded like otherwordly music! I loved this place!

The pathway is somewhat rough so be prepared, and not one to do on a hot day I’d say as zero shelter from the sun.

The hike across the beach onto the cape ending at the lighthouse takes you across multiple unearthy landscapes. Take a different track when going back so you get to see other views. Notice the lighthouse is not accessible.
