Walked 4 miles to this lighthouse only to find it’s covered in graffiti and the paint is all chipped

Yes it has wonderful views etc but someone needs to repaint it a clean white colour (I know that nobody can stop the graffiti) but it just ruins it for everyone else!

This lighthouse seems to feature in many postcards and tourist industry photos for Kefalonia. It looks lovely from a distance, but when you get there, the paintwork is crumbling and it is covered in graffiti, much of it about depression! It is a shame that the Kefalonian's don't look after this and keep it properly maintained.

Every time i come to the island, I will spend at least one evening sitting by the lighthouse watching the sun set behind the hills behind Lixouri. Even with a few other people there (which is only occasional), it is incredibly relaxing to sit and just watch the sea. With views out to sea, over mountains, and to the coves around the corner, there's nothing like it.
Last year i was lucky enough to see bioluminescence from the lighthouse, though i haven't seen it since - I'll be looking out for it next year! You need a couple of very still days for this to happen though, and on an island like this, where the wind is funnelled between the mountains, it's pretty rare. Either sitting on the lighthouse steps, on the rocks in front of it, or the benches along the path leading to the lighthouse, you'll get spectacular sunset photos (just google for some examples)!

We saw this from the ferry and decided to have a look. It is just a small lighthouse and has graffiti all over it.

Its not worth going out if you way for but the view of the bay is nicw

Lovely view of this when you get the ferry between Lixouri/Argostoli. Suggestion, maybe a bigger light is needed as at night its not as bright as I thought a lighthouse light would be.
