The COVID-19 pandemic has spread around the world, and it would seem that there is no longer any place that the coronavirus has not reached, but there are still some hidden spots left.

Lighthouses are impressive structures and many travellers seek them out - even if many of them are abandoned. 

The number of people infected with coronavirus globally has exceeded 1.6 million, according to the World Health Organisation, and many people would like to hide in such remote places.
