Cap de Formentor – a wild rocky promontory featuring dramatic sea cliffs and offering fabulous views over the Mediterranean.

Formentor Lighthouse – situated in the isolated and rugged Cap de Formentor, this lovely silver-domed lighthouse is well worth a visit to take in the wild cliff-top scenery.
Bird Watching – this windswept, rugged part of Mallorca is a haven for bird watchers. White-rumped rock dove, deep-blue feathered rock thrush, Eleonora’s falcons, swifts, ravens, martins… they’re all here!
Mirador de la Crueta – situated on the cliff top, the views from this look out point here are particularly spectacular.
Tramuntana Mountains – perhaps the most scenic part of Mallorca, the Tramuntana mountain range spreads along the Formentor peninsular. Perfect hiking and cycling country.
Talaia d’Albercuix – old watchtower with breath taking views overlooking the sea.
Raco de Xot Cave – opening up to the Mediterranean Sea, the cave is an important source of information about Mallorca’s prehistoric Talaiot culture.
Restaurant Platja Mar – an outpost of the famous Hotel Formentor, this upmarket restaurant specialises in delicious paella and grilled fish.

Great for Golf, Hiking and Cycling
Although the Formentor peninsular doesn’t have its own golf course, if you enjoy a good game of golf you are in luck. Nearby you’ll find the famous 18-hole Alcanada golf course which is widely regarded as not only Mallorca’s finest golf course, but also one of the best in the world.
The course overlooks the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean and is surrounded by attractive pine and olive groves. The clubhouse is an historic Mallorcan mansion; its terrace offering views to die for.
Appealingly, the surrounding countryside in the foothills of the Tramuntana Mountains is also a paradise for walkers. There are many marked hiking trails here to be enjoyed.
Cyclists too love exploring the Formentor peninsular on two wheels, even though some of the climbs can be a little ‘challenging’.
You’ve arrived in the stunningly beautiful Formentor peninsular late in the afternoon and the sun is shining. You unpack, take a quick look around your rented holiday accommodation, and it’s time to relax after your journey. So you gather friends and family round and share a few tasty nibbles. After a pleasant siesta, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of this picturesque peninsular. As the sun sinks below the horizon, you take a stroll along the rocky, pine-clad cliffs taking in the most wonderful views of the Mediterranean. Feeling a little peckish, you take the short drive into nearby Port de Pollensa and visit one of the fabulous seafood restaurants.
After a delicious meal and a post-prandial digestif you drop into a waterfront bar to wind down a little and soak up the resort’s genial atmosphere. But it’s been a long day so you choose to return to your Formentor holiday home for an early night, because in the morning, you’ve got that boat trip booked for a great day out for the whole family.
How to get to Formentor
The peninsular of Formentor is connected to the rest of the island by road, and buses run from Formentor beach to Alcudia, Port d’Alcudia and Port de Pollenca. There is also a regular boat service to Formentor beach (May to October) from Port de Pollenca.
