Easy to get there with a scooter. It was nice place to chill our and see the beautiful sunset and beautiful view of the ocean. After the sunset the lighthouse was lit. There's also an old defense tower nearby.

don´t miss it, sunsets here are breathtaking. look for the entrace to the cave, just a hole in the ground with a rustic ladder descending. Take a seat on the rocks hanging over the deep blue sea and let nature be the show

Very beautiful place with a beautiful view of the ocean. There is a cave under the rocks, worth a visit! Reachable by scooter, car or bicycle.

Be sure to visit the defense tower a 5 minute walk southwards. You cannot visit the lighthouse itself.

The whole experience of visiting the island is great. The lighthouse with its breathtaking vie wis one of the highlights. Renting a bike or a scooter and exploring the island, including this spot, is a very recommended option.

Ok, on December 25th it was rainy, but one day later, it was really beautiful! You can even see the mountains around Denia...

One of the most beatiful settings and places in Formentera. Far away from almost everything is this lighthouse on the verge of a precipice, surrounded by a desertic natural park, and of course, the endless Mediterranean. And lets not forget the sunset.

Everyone seems to go there for sunset. It's absolutely gorgeous, and you'll shoot tens of photos. There are people who bring boom boxes with their music, though, which I could do without.
