One of the best spots to see the sunset in Formentera. You'll experience amazing views, with a feeling the sea is 360 degrees around you! Don't forget to take your camera as you will surely take lot of magnificent shots there! Tip: There is a hole in the ground right to the lighthouse, leading to the cave. It's possible to... More

I belive this is the perfect spot to see the sunset in Formentera. The lighthouse is situated on a cliff above the sea with amazing views and the sun sets in the middle of the sea. Make sure you are here 45 minutes before the sunset in order to have time to park and get the perfect spot for a... More

Very nice view and great sunset point! Shame there not a cafe or bar. We were lucky there were 2 guys with cold boxes selling cold drinks.

Great views, I preferred the Mola, but this too was nice to see. If you go there, and you see a hole with a ladder in it, go down the ladder. You will wind up in a cave that takes you out on the Cliff above the water. This is probably the best thing about this place.

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. Views from the cliff top are spectacular. The sea is amazingly turquoise. Watch out for the shear drop off from the cliff edge - there are no barriers. Keep close hold... More

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

Beautiful drive up to the Lighthouse and great photo opportunity. Take the small left turn and go down the small track to the old lighthouse / fort...even more secluded,

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.
