Fanari is an area in the nortwest part of Mykonos
, also known as Faros Armenistis because of the lighthouse nearby ("faros" means "lighthouse" in Greek). It has hotels and villas scattered on a hill overlooking Tinos
island, and from the lighthouse you can see the sunset over the sea. Mykonos Town
is about 8 km away. The closest beach is Houlakia
(2 km) but it is narrow and has large pebbles instead of sand, so it is suitable only for swimming.
