Posidi Lighthouse

Posidi Lighthouse

The amazing historic whitewashed lighthouse in Posidi is tucked away at the far end of Myti Beach, a short distance from Hotel Stathis. It is a wonderful jewel that will take you back in time.

Constructed in 1864, this historical landmark lighthouse was originally located on the water’s edge. However, over time, the sea’s constant movements have left behind a wide expanse of sandy shoreline.

Exquisite in its colonial-style design, the lighthouse still fulfils its original function today, its ageless beauty matched by a quaint garden full of flowers.

The name “Mendi” is deeply ingrained in this place, carrying on the tradition of a bygone period. Place names from Mendi’s realm still exist; one such beach is Posidio, which is an Ionic variant of Posidonion; Thucydides wrote about it in the fifth century BC.

For those who are interested in history, the temple of Poseidon is located about four kilometres to the west. It is positioned boldly on a narrow strip of ground close to the sea.

A voyage through time is in store for those who go into this alluring seaside region.
