Capo d’Otranto - The 32 m (105 ft) tall round stone lighthouse rises from a 2-story keeper’s house, the tip of which requires advance booking on New Year’s eve, when many Italians flood to the cape to watch the new year’s sun rise over the ocean.

Great Isaac Cay Lighthouse, the Bahamas - The Great Issac Cay Lighthouse had something of an odd start to its storied life. It was built as part of an exhibition for the Great London Exposition of 1862, and after the event closed, it was shipped, piece by piece, to the Bahamas. The whole area is incredibly dangerous for ships; in many areas, there’s coral reefs that lay only a few feet below the surface.

Klein Curacao - The 20m (66ft) tall lighthouse tower is abandoned, along with the two ruined 2-story keeper’s houses flanking it, but still functional. It was reactivated with a solar-powered LED beacon during the restoration of Curacao’s aids to navigation in 2008, having stood utterly dormant for many years prior.
