Cap de Formentor, Formentor

(2,000+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Plan your visit to Cap de Formentor and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Formentor vacation planner.

  • Beautiful place to visit when in Mallorca. The landscape is unique. The road that leads here is also great if you like driving but you will have to get up really early if you want to avoid the traffic and cyclists.
  • The drive to Cap Formentor is prettier than the place itself. But just for the ride definitely worth it.
  • Great sunset.. Amazing view.. Spectacular road.. So cool, dynamic, great to drive... Little bit narrow, so drivers with little experience, be careful.. Lighthouse is cool.. Nice parking, but always overcrowded.
  • White knuckle ride to get there. Not for the faint hearted but an amazing experience and very special place. Loved it but needed a gin and tonic when I got back to the beach to steady my nerves!
  • One of my favourite places on earth. The cafe is ludicrously expensive and car parking is nuts especially at peak times but the drive is lovely and the views spectacular. Personally, doing it by bike in the early morning sun can't be beaten!
