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.

  • Cape Formentor... The road to get there... Dare to do... And Park you like everyone along, almost at the top. This road may seem impressive, and it is. But it is not insurmountable. In October it is possible... Very nice point of view. The second point of view for me is Cape Formentor. There is only the décor. arrived in Cape Town, no coffee, no toilet. Take your precautions. To Cap Formentor, the road is easier even if it remains curvy. On arrival you can always dine or have a drink on the terrace... Expensive and not really good...

  • Strange place with buildings right where you'd expect to see the views from. It's like the place was only there for the cafe rather than the spectacle of being at the end of the island and seeing the ...  more »
  • We did a short, about 2.30 h hike on the cape, from on side to the other. On the road, just after the tunnel is a small parking place with a nice view. Across the street a sign indicates the beginning...  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.
