If you’re looking for a truly remote getaway, it’s hard to beat a lighthouse hotel. As many lighthouses around the world have gone dark, conservation societies and private individuals have stepped in to snap them up and convert them into quirky hotels or bed and breakfasts. In some cases, the lighthouses are still operational, so guests might hear the sound of the foghorn as they drift off to sleep. Getting to the hotels can be part of the adventure, as many require a boat ride or helicopter journey, and because many of them have only a handful of rooms, they book up months in advance. But for 360-degree water views, the sound of crashing waves, and hardly a neighbor in sight, making your way to a lighthouse hotel is well worth the challenge. Here’s a look at some of the best around the world.—Christina Valhouli
