Cap de Formentor, Mallorca, Spain Events & Weddings

Formentor peninsula

From Port de Pollença, it’s half an hour’s drive (21 kilometres/13 miles) up and round the switchbacks of the steep, narrow road to Mallorca’s most northerly cape, Cap de Formentor, celebrated by poets and artists for its pine forests, its peace and its superlative, dizzying panoramas. It’s an essential trip if you’re in the area, but make it early or late in the day if you don’t want to be part of a tourist convoy. The main stops are at the Mirador des Colomer, a short pathway on the edge of a 232 metre- (760 foot-) high sheer vertical cliff, and the lighthouse. Further fine views can be had from side journeys up the Atalaya d’Alberutx and at Can es Faro, but you’ll need good nerves and suspension to take on the old, beaten-up roads here.
