Cap de Formentor, Majorca
(4.4/5 based on 1,900+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • ...denn fun that just outside the season right. At least standing on narrow mountain roads and endless curves. Another advantage of the off-season? It is empty. No, it's abandoned. There people were just 6-10. Although you can't get on the tower and you get also nix from the cafeteria but for this you may enjoy damn views almost entirely for themselves.

  • If they ask us what is for us the Mediterranean, without doubt the answer would be "The cabo de Formentor". Few places in this small sea coasts agglutinate in so little space that we could agree on call "Mediterranean essence": colors, nature, landscape, stillness, seduces everything in this rocky Appendix of the Mallorcan coast!

  • Stunning view in the see, the mountains. Just impressive ! Apart from view, not much to do when you are there, just having a drink and watch, so don't hesitate to stop in the way in the other places w...  more »

  • 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!
  • Fantastic scenery and a good bike ride work out to get here. Car parking is limited in high season so if driving be patient and prepared to wait to be let in. The cafe serves nice snacks but is very pricey.
  • Well worth a visit if you are in Mallorca. If you can, rent a Bike and cycle there - great views on the way. After 10/11 am it can get quite busy. The Restaurant there is best left alone.
