Cap de Formentor, Formentor

#12 of 1,241 in Things to do in Majorca
With a view of cliffs that inspire awe and caution, Cap de Formentor is an epic drive. Look for a cave that opens to the sea about 8 m (26.2 ft) above the water. Inside this protected alcove is evidence of the prehistoric Talaiot culture. There are a handful of other lookout points to visit, the most famous of which is Mirador del Mal Pas. In 1996, a private weather station was built at one of the lookouts to send encoded radio transmissions, which are transmitted all over the world.

  • The perspectives on the Infinite Sea are a lot, but not one like this. The journey through the forest, mountains, rocks, a beautiful natural tunnel and in the end was a great lighthouse, the outlook widely far. The road was an adrenaline rush and we also met a couple of goats.

  • We were there at the beginning of June and were able to drive back and forth relaxed, as it doesn't seem to be so crowded at this time of year. The way to the cap was very nice and absolutely recommended. The lighthouse at the end of the trail was not really spectacular.

  • picturesque views of a combination of mountains ans the sea. It's so breath-taking that definitely worths paying a visit. A must see place for all tourists. Take my advice and rent a car for going there. You won't regret it! Certainly recommend 👍👍👍👍
  • Nice scenery, but in hindsight would not have gone, the road is challenging enough without having to negotiate cyclists. The cafe was poor in terms of both service and food. It would be better if they closed the roads to cars during certain times and just allowed bikes, and similarly closed it to cyclists and just allow cars at set times.
