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.

  • 35 minutes stuck in the car to reach the headlight. Access is very complicated because of the cyclists and the lack of parking space. The only bar/restaurant on site is overpriced. The view is very beautiful but no more than other views that can be found on the island.

  • At the northernmost point of Mallorca is this lighthouse, perched high on the heights, overlooking the sea with very narrow but winding roads to get there. From the lighthouse the view is beautiful but it is mainly on the watchtowers leading to the lighthouse that the views are the most beautiful. Sensitive soul refrain for turns, especially when as for us the rain invites to the rendezvous and a monumental force. It is a beautiful place with views that are just as beautiful on the most beautiful wonders of nature.

  • We drove to the cap de formentor. The view is worth it. You can see it in the photos. Strictly speaking, we went up the mountain with the tower. Which, in my opinion, is the better target and higher. Just a fantastic view. We can only recommend the tour. On the way there you can stop at different points and always have a super nice view.

  • Awesome overview! It's only reachable by bus or bike.
  • The most amazing I've seen in my life. The pictures you see online don't do it justice. It is absolutely breathtaking
  • This place is worth all the effort to reach the island and the top. You could see all the beautiful colors from the top and on the way. Highly recommend for all visitors
  • Beautiful. We drove almost all the way up. There was a line of cars, so we pulled to the side and parked and walked up the rocks for a good place to set up camera equipment for sunset.
  • Just must see place. Glorious views. Better to visit early in the morning as otherwise is overcrowded.
