We drive up the mountains as we hired a car for 3 days, it is a beautiful drive up the mountains with a few stops on the way up and down, we didn’t stop off at the beach but we did drive to the top...More

Very scenic mountain road (ca 10km long, 10000000 hairpins and curves) from the island to the end pof Formentor peninsula, where you find a lighthouse. In there you have a small restaurant with free of charge toilet (not only for restaurant guests). Road is narrow...More

There is a long windy drive to the point, but it is well worth doing. Coaches apparently go to it so if they can do it so can you, just don't meet one!! Great views of all the rocky cliffs

What an amazing drive all the way to the lighthouse . Fabulous views and if the weather was warmer we passed a great cove that looked idyllic.

The road to Formentor Lighthouse is a must do ride for any cyclist. The initial climb from Port de Pollenca is a moderate affair but is best enjoyed descending. As you progress past the Mirador es Colomer stunning views begin revealing themselves as you twist...More

If you’re going to go here go by the scenic boat tour. We drove. Took ages, dodgy road, big drops, lanes often too narrow for 2 (let alone the looney 4x4 brigade), congested by cyclists (admittedly super fit people) and normally impossible to park when...More

Views are great, and this place is definitely worth visiting. Parking is limited but if you wait until someone moves out, you'll find the spot. Driving is not easy: the road is narrow with no shoulder, plenty of cyclists and inexperienced drivers, who are afraid...More
