The drive to La Mola lighthouse is incredible as you go through all the pines and get to discover the incredible variety of blues on the sea views. When arrived at the lighthouse itself, there is the remoteness feel of the island that hits and you can enjoy a lovely walk to soak up the scenery.

The drive to the lighthouse isn't for the faint hearted with very narrow twisty roads & hideous, very limited parking once you arrive. The whole approach was gridlocked by motorists parking at the roadside, obstructing the whole road due to the limited parking actually at the lighthouse. Once you arrive it's a major disappointment, we spent a maximum of 10mins... More

Lighthouse is on the furthest edge of the island. Road there goes up to the hill and takes approx 20min. Some "mirador" stops with nice views to the island in the middle. Lighthouse stands on the edge of the cliff. You can make some nice pictures up there.

This old lighthouse faces East and commands stupendous views over the Mediterranean from 100 meter high cliffs. Jules Vernes called this the end of the world... A plaque tells how he came here. Come early to see the sunrise and then have a coffee at the small bar. Or just walk around admire the cliffs, the sea, the seabirds and... More

At the southern most tip of the island you have to go here to look at the lighthouse and the cliffs. There is also a monument to Jules Verne who wrote a novel including the place I think. There is a very nice bar restaurant here also well worth tying for a simple lunch and a few beers. The near... More
