We went to Cap de Formentor in the beginning of March. Outside of the slow season, I can not even imagine driving there. Parking at the lighthouse is very limited and some people park like real jerks, which screws it up for everyone else. The views there are amazing, but if you are prone to road-rage I highly recommend you... More

Dramatically curving roads, awesome views and goat sighting-- what more could one ask? Wear walking shoes and do get out and walk.

Dare to drive to cap de formentor not for the nervous drivers as twisty narrow roads with steep drops. Passengers will admire the views whilst you keep your eyes on the roads. It's worth the drive I have driven this road over a dozen times and I'm a female so it's not that bad really 😄 views are breath taking... More

You must be brave to go there by car, but it's worth it. The way to the cap is narrow and exciting, especially if you have to pass other cars. But the view is fantastic, you must have seen!

After a road trip in Mallorca's Northern Peninsula having visited the Mirador es Colomer, Playa de Formentor and Cala Figuera this was a perfect way to end the day. Cap de Formentor comes right out of a fairytale, especially when the sun sets and slowly kisses the mountains and the sea goodbye. There is a small restaurant with toilets located... More

The drive up to the lighthouse brings many photo points each one of which provides remarkably splendid pictures. The views are breathtaking and we loved our decision to drive up there for a sunset. Avoid busy hours. The parking up there is very limited. Tip: if you are driving there, be ready to part car on the main inclined road... More

Even if the road is not so hard to drive as to go at Sa Calobra or Port de Valldemossa, it is not a road for the beginners. The road itsef offers a lot of points with stuning views of the sea, from high points. a nice trip for photo hunting.

Absolutely worth the trip! This was perhaps the most beautiful part of the island. Lovely drive to the lighthouse. Beware of the cyclists and I would imaging this place is packed during high season. Do stop at the parking area on the way back from the lighthouse and hike to the top of the hill to view the lighthouse from... More

You just have to go there on your own. The view is really breathtaking. If you are afraid of height - you can have troubles reaching this point, especially that the road is really twisted and for not experienced driver it could be really hard.

Family and I drove from Alcudia to Cape Formentor. We were captivated by the scenic view throughout the drive - passing forests, beaches, port pollencia, up/down the hills along the coast line, scenic views from the cliffs, before finally arriving at the lighthouse. The view from the lighthouse was stunning! Road condition was very good. Lots of cyclists and hikers... More
