We decided to drive to the light house as our guide book recommended it. We travelled from Pollenca, and approached the turning where you could see the bus car park. There were no signs, no car queue, so we continued driving. Windy and narrow roads......More

The views are amazing, there is no doubt. The problem is getting there and back. First thing to note: the road is closed to the general public from 10am to 5pm (I think... might have been 6pm?). If you get there between those hours you...More

We drove out there after early dinner to catch the sunset light. Traffic was not too bad. Most of the road is OK, but there are super scary sections along the way. The lighthouse view and the vista points along the way do not disappoint.

Make sure you have a small car to get there but the view is breath taking Going back you can stop at Formentor Beach - one of the best beaches in Majorca

The drive to the lighthouse is a wonderful journey itself. Go there first thing in the morning before the entire place becomes a traffic nightmare. There are many beautiful spots along the way but visit them only after you have visited the lighthouse.

If you want to see this lighthouse it will be great to come earlier in the morning because after 10 am this place is really busy with a lot of cars around. Nice views from the lighthouse.

The road to this spectacular viewpoint is challenging but the views once there are amazing. A pity the cafe is not up to snuff.

It takes about 45 minutes arduous drive to get to Formentor and there's a restaurant there with your average fare burgers etc. The view back to the "Mainland" is OK. Wouldn't do it again
