All reviews stunning views light house formentor beach scary drive confident driver blind bends limited parking beautiful drive parking place mountain goats hair raising hire car winding road worth the trip puerto pollensa high season worth the effort
Our visit did not have the best weather but we made the best of it. For a single winding road out to the lighthouse, its in terrific condition and I bet in the main season It would be crowded. There was a small stop near...More
Go.... if you enjoy driving ‘mountain’ roads (i.e. twisty, slow paced, big drops, narrowish roads) and like a snack accompanied with spectacular scenery as a reward. Don’t go if you don’t.
The cafe at the lighthouse is adequate, it serves snacks, cold drinks, hot drinks...More

If you don't know the answer don't guess! The name of the lookout BEFORE the lighthouse (as you asked) is mirador es colomer Formentor. There is also Talaia d'Albercutx which is opposite the mirador. Hope this helps!

I cycled from Port du Pollenca to Cap de Formentor and that was a lovely ride and avoided the massive tailback of motorists. You would need to be a reasonably fit cyclist though. An alternative might be to hire motor... More
I cycled from Port du Pollenca to Cap de Formentor and that was a lovely ride and avoided the massive tailback of motorists. You would need to be a reasonably fit cyclist though. An alternative might be to hire motor assisted bikes from one of the bike rental shops on the island.
