  • at the end of the island there is this white Lighthouse overlooking the cliffs. very attractive location but that roost is the scenery of the sea seen from this altitude, you will find yourself overlooking the horizon blue. for a moment there is no stranger to all listening to the sound of waves on the rocks. be aware though that there are no parapets.

  • It is located in the farthest Island tip and is accessed after ascending the plateau that contains their biggest reliefs (of just a hundred meters), from where you get fine panoramic. The last stretch of about 6-8 km. is via a road estrechisima univehiculo that seems hard to travel in the summer and the plain that is home to the lighthouse exhibits the same desolation that exist in the Western tips of the Iberian Peninsula (Cape San Vicente (, Finisterre...) and of them differs in that the cliff is less abrupt and not dark, but ochre. Very attractive for loving visitors from winds and alma marina

  • What to add if the writer Julio Verne wrote a book about this place? Re-fuel, without doubt

  • Go 10 minutes before sunrise- you won't regret it!!!
  • Worth a look. Nice gift shop beside it. The lighthouse is not the most attractive I've seen. Also, it's in operation so you aren't allowed near it.
  • Amazing place... Views, sounds and air are so special there. I recommend to visit Formentera just for visiting this Lighthouse
  • Great overview of the island on the way to Far de la Mola, recommend to go with a car or scooter because the way up is quite tough
  • Great view of the cliffs and the ocean before turning your scooter around to the beach.
