SHARE ROUTE

From the lighthouse at Aucanada to Cap de Formentor Lighthouse. It is one of the most spectacular routes and it will bring us to one of the most beautiful lighthouses in Mallorca. The lighthouse hangs off a cliff and has some gorgeous views of Serra de Tramuntana.

We will depart from the lighthouse at Aucanada, in Alcúdia. This is one of the most beautiful routes. We will go to the town of Pollença where we will see the historic center, Pont Romà, the Chapel of Calvari, and the Convent of Santo Domingo. In Pollença’s port you will be able to make the most of the long esplanade and wide beaches with crystal-clear water. Leaving the urban centers, we will go deep into Serra de Tramuntana, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Before coming to our final destination, we will make a must-see stop at the lookout Mirador d’es Colomer, where we will enjoy the landscape of Serra de Tramuntana and its different cliffs.

Our final destination will appear after we walk along a narrow highway with lots of bends, but it will have been worth it because we will come to Cap de Formentor Lighthouse, where you will be able to appreciate some spectacular views.
