Pladda Island Has Lighthouse, 5-Bedroom Home & More

Pladda Island has a lighthouse that was first installed in 1790. Today, the lighthouse is fully automated and monitored by the Northern Lighthouse Boards Headquarters. It’s home to a 5-bedroom house that comes with two living rooms, a kitchen, a freezer room and a bathroom. But it hasn’t been used in recent years and needs to be upgraded. The house also has a walled garden where fruits and vegetables are grown across 2.5 acres. The only way to visit the island is via a chopper or a boat. So that explains the existence of a helipad.
