Porto Colom Lighthouse – Capdepera Lightouse – Stage 2
Stage 2: Porto Cristo – Capdepera Lightouse

Get to know Mallorca by traveling from the historic naval port of Porto Cristo to Faro de Capdepera, one of the most beautiful lighthouses on the island, passing through the different coves and resorts along the way.

The tour begins in Porto Cristo, a beautiful natural port with a strong naval tradition, where you will be able to enjoy the many restaurants on offer.

We will keep to the coastline, where you will be right beside the sea, and we will pass through the resorts and population centers, such as Cala Morlanda—an area full of rocks and little cliffs—, before coming to S’Illot and Sa Coma. If you move off the route, you will be able to see the castle at Punta de n’Amer and enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the coast.

We will come to Cala Millor and Cala Bona and you will enjoy its great promenade and you will be able to stop and have a snack. Then we will leave the coast and go into the municipalities of Son Servera and Capdepera. Capdepera dates from the Medieval period, and we will be able to see its most important building, the unique Castle of Capdepera. Our final destination is the lighthouse, Faro de Capdepera, where you will be able to enjoy the loveliness of the evening and a panoramic view of the entire coast.
