  • Exciting views from the rocks are worth to travel by bike or car the long way to the cap. There is also a small cueva to climb down where you can walk to the edge of the cliffs.  more »
  • ... magnificent sunset to faro...ma not to this!!! ... get to the lighthouse to the North where there is truly a special atmosphere ... to cap de barbaria instead for me and the other eight members of the society ... such a disappointment! Here's what not to do in Formentera!

  • Departing from Sant Francesc Xavier, you have to take the road PM-820-1, until the end. Are each 10 km. that with peace is made in 15 minutes. There are that go with caution because towards the section end, the road is narrow, although is a straight of easy visibility. The Lighthouse is located on a spectacular cliff of more than 100 meters high. Here the famous movie "Sex and Lucia" was filmed. Near the lighthouse, there is a cave in which you can enter and exit the area of the cliffs, below the level of the lighthouse. Views of spectacular and at night the sunsets also they are very nice. Indispensable a visit if are in the island.

  • Best sunset of the island... such a magical place! Get down to the cave to see the views from the cliff and then go back up to see the sunset. There are no bars, so anything you might need bring it with you, and also take your rubbish back :)
  • Fantastic. Must see. Already the ride by scooter to this viewpoint is great. On the site itself is not much to do but just soak up the surroundings and recharge yourself.
  • loved the lighthouse there. Get there at the sunset and take fantastic pictures. there's also a kind of hole where you can access a kind of small cave, but i was not there. seek for simple infos on the web to find the access.
  • A very nice place and a sunset qye worth seeing. Often enough people go, go better with time. Road in good condition which, in its final stretch, are narrow and can only be a vehicle, but there is room to tip over and let go. Better go in the off-season that there are fewer people.

  • Easy to reach by any means, offers an exceptional view. Not far from the lighthouse, about thirty paces North, you will find a small hole in the ground with a wooden staircase in 4 steps ... If you walk you will find yourself in a wonderful little natural cave: a Pearl that many do not know!
