Yediburunlar Lighthouse, Turkey

Yediburunlar means “seven noses,” the Turkish description of the seven bays that make up the Turquoise Coast at the Mediterranean’s eastern end. This six-room inn delivers seclusion in a big way. Though the structure isn’t technically a lighthouse, guests will find sweeping views of the sea where Jason and the Argonauts once sailed. Activities include coastal hikes, local excursions, and sailboat cruises.

Eco cred: Solar panels heat the water, and recycling is a priority.

Insider’s tip: Innkeeper Semra Aydeniz welcomes guests into the kitchen to learn how Turkish specialties are prepared.
