Mallorca (Majorca) Day Trips

Days Trips


Formentor is a delightful peninsula that sticks out of the North East of Mallorca like a donkeys ear. The peninsula is 20km long after a 4 km steep climb, the Miridor de Mal pass offers an incredible lofty look out over the North facing sea cliffs. If one is to look back, a rough pot-holed road leads up to the Talaia d'Albercutx watchtower. The road is not for the faint hearted but the panoramic 360 degree views or the peninsula, coast and sea is well worth the scares! This is perhaps the greatest view on all of Mallorca.

2km further on from the watchtower is a roadside carpark. From here you can walk to the Platja de Formentor, a golden sand beach with pine trees and lovely views of the mountains. At the far end of the beach is the Hotel Formentor, a luxurious hotel which was once visited by the Hollywood "in crowd"and made Mallorca one of the places to be seen in the 1930´s. Charlie Chaplin, F Scott Fitzgerald and Errol Flynn all stayed here during the hotel's glamourous heyday.

At the end of the 20km peninsula is a lighthouse and a coffee shop where you can relax and gaze at the miriad seabirds that colonise the cliffs and look back on this wonderful Mallorca landmark.
