The north of the island, where all the meetings of the world leaders take place, isolated, startling. We recommend a visit to the viewpoint of Cabo Formentor and take a dip at the beach after the descent. The nearest village is Puerto Pollensa. The place is also known as Cala Pi de la Posada and has been admired by characters like Churchill and Octavio Paz, among many others.
We depart from Puerto Pollensa to dive into the Formentor Peninsula (a strip of land 13 kilometres long and three kilometres at its widest part), and a stop at one of the first sights that will leave us agape with its landscapes is a must: The Mirador des Colomer or Sa Creueta.
Then we continue to the popular Playa de Formentor where the road is less travelled. We still have a few kilometres to go between pines, oaks, palmettos, rocks, cliffs ... and if we intersect with another car, it’s a hard moment for both to continue driving at the same time at the same point.
We leave behind the coves of Figuera and Murta and finally, after one of the countless curves appears the clear profile of the lighthouse on the mountain overlooking the sea. Once arriving at the Lighthouse Formentor, we are in the finis terrae de Mallorca, northwest of the island, where the Serra de Tramuntana disappears between canyons, cliffs, coves and some secluded small beach that make up the steep and rugged Formentor Peninsula.
