"Meeting point of the winds" Isla de Formentor by mindcrime

Isla de Formentor Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 50 photos

Formentor peninsula is an amazing range that gives the best photo opportunities in Mallorca island, no surprise many postcards of Mallorca have pictures from here including some spectacular rock formations along the bay.

We followed the scenic road from Puerto Pollensa, they say that it gets crowded and the traffic is so high that you may need 2 hours to cover the 14km till the end of the peninsula but we didn’t have this problem in may. The road was made by the Italian enginner Antonio Paretti but we founded kind of scary in some parts because it is narrow and has numerous close turns.

Along the way there are “miradors”, view points that you can stop and take some great pictures. Most of the tour buses and the majority of cars stop at the first one (mirador d’es Colomer) which is great and the most popular but we decided to go all the way up until Cap de Formentor and see the lighthouse that dominates the northern part of the island in general.

There are some great corners, numerous paths, a famous hotel (Hotel Formentor) that was built in 1929 (with famous guests in the past like Winston Churchill), the lighthouse of course (Cap de Formentor) even some nice beaches. Of course the main attraction are the rocky formations that go into the sea, formation that have been made through the centuries by wind and water. Noone can beat nature…
