Driving to Cap Formentor

It truly is a wild peninsula with 400m cliffs & stunning views. The drive to Cap de Formentor has dramatic scenery and is quite scary if you don’t have a head for heights. The Cap can get very busy during the summer months and the narrow and winding access roads can easily get overcrowded. This has led to the road between Formentor beach, and the lighthouse being closed every day from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm for all private vehicles during the peak tourist season.

If you want to visit the top of the cliffs during the day, the recommendation is to leave the car in Port de Pollenca and take the shuttlebus or you can drive as far as Formentor beach and make your way from there.

The beach & Lighthouse

At Formentor beach, you will find the newly refurbished Hotel Formentor; which opened in 1930 and has had many famous guests, including Winston Churchill and Charlie Chaplin. The beach is now open to everyone but once was reserved for hotel guests only.

The lighthouse is not open to visitors, but you can walk around its rocky surroundings & the views are breath-taking.

The 22m high lighthouse tower is poetically known as the Majorcan Finisterre (or the Land’s End of Majorca). Construction began in 1857 and because of the difficult landscape, a path had to be cleared to transport building materials. The epic task of building the lighthouse took more than 200 people over six years to accomplish.
