If you are planning a holiday in Formentor, Mallorca, the following information may help by giving you an overview on the resort.
Cap de Formentor – a 20km drive from Puerto Pollensa to Mallorca’s most northerly point has scenery as dramatic as anyone could wish for. Cliffs 400m tall jut into the sea, their weird rock formations attracting nesting seabirds, while pine trees seem to grow out of the rocks.
6km from Puerto Pollensa you reach the Mirador des Colomer where you will have views over the rocky islet. A path opposite the steps leads to an old watchtower from which you can see the whole of the peninsula as well as the bays of Pollensa and Alcudia. The road continues through pine woods and past more miradors [viewpoints] before tunnelling through En Fumat mountain, where you can look down over Mallorca’s most inaccessible beach. Eventually you reach a lighthouse with the inevitable bar and shop and more stunning views all the way to Menorca on a good day.
On the way back, stop at Formentor beach and the Hotel Formentor which opened in 1929 and has been pampering the rich and famous ever since. The fine sandy beach used to be reserved for the hotels guests, but democracy has now opened it to the public.
