The lighthouse was built in 1897 with oil as a source of energy, with a white flash per 5s and a light range of 26n.m. During the Second World War, the lighthouse remained off. In the context of the reorganization of the Lighthouse Network, it re-opened in 1945 with oil as a source of energy. In 1983 the oil machines were replaced, the lighthouse operated as supervised solar with a white flash per 5s and a light range of 19n.m.
The tower is circular with a height of 9m with a house for the lightsmen. The lighthouse is located at the northeastern point of Maskoula of the homonymous island, at a focal height of 138m and can be accessed by boat from the port of Kimolos to the beach of the lighthouse. From the beach a 30 minutes inaccessible path takes you to the entrance of the lighthouse.
