Kylmäpihlaja lighthouse, a pearl off the coast of Rauma
Built in 1953, this lighthouse is one of few in Finland that has rooms located in the tower itself. A 45-minute boat ride from the mainland, this charming little island serves gourmet lovers, retreaters and nature buffs equally well.
The exquisite restaurant alone is worth the trip, and for those staying overnight, a steaming sauna followed by a cooling drink on the cliffs is a must. Watching the sun set on the horizon with only birdlife for company is a cinematic experience.
The restaurant at Kylmäpihlaja lighthouse is phenomenal, and food enthusiasts flock here from great distances. Chef Tom Lindqvist and a score of famed guest stars do things to your tastebuds that make you want to miss the boat back.
