Visitors to Spain’s Canary Islands generally stay on the island of Tenerife. But those looking for a more under-the-radar vacation spot may want to visit the oft-overlooked island of La Palma.
On the northeast coast of this relatively untouched, forest-covered island sits Faro Punta Cumplida, a 152-year-old lighthouse that has recently been renovated into a dreamy hotel.
Floatel, a Berlin-based company that creates “hideaways” across Europe, converted the lighthouse keeper’s quarters into three luxury suites complete with an infinity pool, garden, patio, and a minibar for guests who are willing to make the trek to the top of the lighthouse.
