Cap de Formentor

Cap de Formentor

Cap de Formentor marks the most northerly point on the island of Mallorca. The headland Cap de Formentor has attracted visitors for nearly a century, and it is notorious for its dramatic views and sheer cliff drops.

Spectacular coastal views

The journey to Cap de Formentor is world renowned for its unforgettable views of the Mediterranean. One of the most popular viewpoints on the way to the headland is Mirador des Colomer, which offers sweeping views of the whole Formentor peninsula. For the best views, visitors need to climb up some steps, from where they can peer down at the beautiful bays of Alcudia and Pollenca.

Continue your journey towards the promontory and bask in its astonishing rocky scenery, a sharp contrast to the bustling sandy beaches at sea level. Mallorca’s mountains and coast do collide, however: En Fumat mountain offers views of the most inaccessible beach in Mallorca, while Formentor beach welcomes visitors year round.

Reach Cap De Formentor and the island’s rocky panoramas are awe-inspiring. The headland is home to several tourist facilities and a lighthouse which is open to visitors. Gaze out at the Mediterranean Sea and marvel at Mallorca’s striking landscape. On a cloudless day, visitors may be able to see as far as the neighbouring Balearic island of Menorca.

Getting to Cap de Formentor

Cap de Formentor is accessible by road, though the journey’s steep drops and curves make it a challenge for even the most experienced drivers. During the summer season, travellers can catch the bus from the nearby town of Puerto Pollenca to Cap de Formentor. A ferry service also runs between Puerto Pollenca and Formentor beach.
