The symbol of the city. The old light house can be a meeting point for tourists and locals. You cannot miss it if driving in the main street by the sea or taking your walk nearby.

I discovered this idylic town on my way to Samotraki Island. The area all around the lighthouse is perfect. with cafe's & restaurants all along the port its just fabulous. Here you can experience real Greek life, the coffee shops the amaxing authentic restaurants with their lovely kind staff & of course the sunset to die for. If you are up early enough you can catch sunrise casting its beautiful colours along the sea & port. I loved this place so much I stayed 3 extra days. Its so authentic, relaxing & safe highly reccommend.

If you arrive in Alexandroupoli, you will certainly visit the lighthouse. A nice area to take pictures, surrounded by many restaurants and cafes.

It is a modern lighthouse build in 1880, visible from distance, but nothing special (there is no entry as the lighthouse is operational). A lot of tavernas and cafeterias on the walking promenade with fantastic sea views, also areas for children to play. The promenade is currently extended (Aug 2019) and when completed it will offer a very nice, long walk along the shore. So the area is really nice, but the lighthouse itself - nothing special.

The area is great to take pictures. Also it is good for kids with scooters. There is fun park just below the lighthouse for the kids.
