There are still many nice unspoiled and undiscovered spots in the world. You don't have to go far far away. Something 'Lighthouse Island' does have proven again. All the enthusiastic posts on Facebook by the few lucky ones who had the opportunity to visit the spot, made me share this great experience here as well.
Lighthouse Island can only be reached by a 45-60 min boat trip leaving from the quay in Amsterdam. The island is no bigger than 2 football fields.What to expect on the Island? small hills, flowers, goats, blackberries, remains of a fort, one small house occupied by 2 people for anti-theftAnd of course the lighthouse. And these days a restaurant in a glass house. A so called 'pop-up' restaurant, which is there for just one month this summer.
A very nice couple subscribed for a competition to exploit the beautiful island, organized by the Dutch Forestry Commission (literally translated). Since the race has not been decided yet - just 2 participants are still on of which this creative couple - this couple convinced the commission to get Amsterdam acquainted with this special place already. The organic food was amazing and the atmosphere with just 20 people allowed made it an unforgettable experience. Fingers crossed that the hospitable couple will win and Amsterdam will have a new amazing spot to visit!
