We expected to hike, parking in the lot by the beach. After a couple hours looking for the trail, twice asking the parking attendant who told us to ignore the private property signs, we ended up on driveways to private gate. So after 3 hours...More

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

The road out there is quite scenic, which is enjoyable. Kind of narrow and tricky with lots of cyclists and sometimes crazy fellow tourists who seem to have no time and seem to have the need to overtake in the most dangerous curves with cyclists...More

Actually it's not the lighthouse that's great - It's just a lighthouse. But the views along the very windy roads and when you get there are amazing, though very similar to the drive to Formentor beach. But there is also a sense of achievement when...More

This is one of those narrow, winding mountain roads that are very abundant along this part of the Island. I visited this location on a Monday and it was still quite busy with traffic of all types; bicycles, mopeds, cars and there are some very...More
