Stage 1: Formentor Lighthouse – Pollença
From the iconic Cap de Formentor Lighthouse, more than 210 meters above sea level, we will go all over the Formentor peninsula until we come to the municipality of Pollença. We will enjoy its traditional sea port and the town’s historic center.
Cap de Formentor Lighthouse is one of the most spectacular and iconic lighthouses on Mallorca. It is located in the north of the island and towers more than 210 meters above sea level. You will be able to enjoy some excellent panoramic views of the Serra de Tramuntana and the Bay of Pollença and, weather permitting, enjoy some views of the island of Menorca.
Ravines, cliffs, and a narrow road full of curves, on which you will often bump into mountain goats, will bring us to Cala Formentor, one of the most beautiful coves on the island, where we can enjoy crystal-clear waters.
We will come to Port de Pollença, where we will enjoy a port teeming with traditional boats and see the wide array of restaurants present in Port de Pollença. We will continue with our route until we come to the end of this stretch of the tour, where we will enjoy the lovely town of Pollença and its historic center.
