Lighthouse of Possidi

Lghthouse Halkidiki Greece

An ancient whitewashed lighthouse lies at the end of Possidi beach, 17 kilometers from Seaview Studios.

The lighthouse was built in 1864 and stood quite close to the ocean in its early days, but the sea has now retreated away. The sand stretch was developed later as a result of silt building up. This colonial-styled lighthouse is still in operation today, and it is surrounded by a little floral garden, which adds to its attractiveness.

The presence of “Mendi” is inextricably linked to the location.

Mendi’s place-names were preserved, such as Posidio, an ionic form of Posidonion, as Thucydides labels it in the fifth century BC.

The temple of Poseidon, constructed on a spit of land near the sea, lies four kilometers west.
