When going to Cap Formentor during our holiday in August 2017, we needed two attempts to actually get there. Our first was on a Sunday morning, but as the destination is fairly well-known there was way too much traffic and it would’ve taken more than...More

Great views from the lighthouse and a number of other stops along the narrow, twisting,turning road. One does need to be a good, confident driver to make the trek, and the surface quality of the road is excellent.

We cycled from Puerto de Pollenca to the lighthouse at Cap de Formentor, which was a wonderful experience. For cyclists it's a great route, climbing hard and swooping down descents punctuated by hairpin bends. Wonderful! The lighthouse sits high on the hillside overlooking the ocean...More

We fortunately came upon this place by accident! The drive up and parking is a little challenging - winding cliff roads and lots of bicyclists! But the walk up to the overlook is worth it! It's approximately 195 steps to the top - but the...More

The road to the cap and lighthouse is somewhat narrow and the traffic heavy, especially when it comes to parking (expect long waiting times during high season). However, the landscape and panorama are impressive and really worth the trip to this place.

Ok being a bit harsh, but I advise drivers to think very carefully before they undertake the trip to cap de Formentor. The roads are narrow and twisting, with eye popping drops with very little to save you from certain death on the cliffs below....More

Once you park your car, I recalled there were a couple of different walking routes - but the walk to the very top is the one we did - more than 300 steps and stunning views all along the way.
