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.

  • Great cycle out from Alcudia to the Cap de Formentor, brilliant road and fantastic views. Lovely coffee shop at the end of the road was a very welcoming reward 
  • Quite a ride to the "cap" but well worth it. Nice café at the top to relax and soak in the 360 degree panoramic view repair the legs for the return journey. Wouldn't recommend by car however parking a...  more »
  • Wrth visitng as the view is spectacular. Drive to the top is a little bit of an experience itself but if careful, no problem.

  • 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.
