Visited late morning on coach trip through holiday resort. Not too busy. Other than the light house (not open to public) and gift shop/cafe - no other buildings there.

Great views! Not to miss. Avoid peak hours (sun set) or be ready to survive to the traffic getting there.

It's chaos by the lighthouse around sunset with hundreds of cars and scooters jamming up the road. Go there in the morning or even better at night when the beacon of the lighthouse throws an eerie light onto the moonscape, accompanied by the wailing cries of the Shearwater Puffins.

An amazing and magical place. A sense of amplitude where there is nothing in front of you and sea and sky meet. Take a bottle of champagne and enjoy the view!

The cap of Barbaria is a gorgeous place to see the sun going down as the light is amazing. It is very relaxing place and you can really feel the remoteness of the island once you get there.

this lighthouse has nicer surroundings (in the middle of nowhere) than the other lighthouse at the eastside of formentera. the lighthouse looks nice, even nicer with the sun setting in the background.
