From June - September cars are not allowed to travel further than the car park near the beach. We only found that out when we arrived. The bus (masks required) was only 3 Euros per adult each way and you can pay cash or tap on / off with your card. The bus trip is about 20 minutes but absolutely fantastic. The views.... just amazing. There is a cafe at the Lighthouse and it's a little pricey, but not more than you would expect to pay at such a location. You can get off the bus and go to a beach part way down, but although we saw people coming back up from it, it looked too much like a steep climb on a hot day for us. We're delighted we made the time to visit though and we took some great photos along the way.

Having read a number of reviews that suggest cars have difficulty in accessing certain parts of this delightful area, may I wholly recommend the 334 bus. An inexpensive and comfortable way to view all parts, including the lighthouse - which also boasts a perfectly good cafe. Fantastic views both at the end destination and also all along the way from the vantage of a relatively higher seating position, not to forget the hugely welcome air conditioning.

We found that the car park to the beach was full as we returned to Puerto Pollença today at c14.00 and there was a significant queue back up the hill. So the message is ‘Go by bus’.

Great experience. After chilling all day at the beach of Formentor we went for a quick visit to cap Formentor, to view a romantic sunset. We had to wait 20 min in line in the car before being allowed to enter the single road up to the lighthouse. Lines were formed by the parking guard fro. The parking next to the beach. The road opens at exactly 19.00. So best to be there just a bit before that. There is little parking space up at the lighthouse. Thing enough for 80 cars or so. Including parking on the side of the road. Views were amazing!

Very long, narrow, twisty road. Views are stunningly beautiful but there is a lot of traffic leading to this place. Bikers uphill and downhill, buses - full craziness. Being extremely careful is a must. We couldn't park on site. Parking only possible for 2 hours, space for 20 cars maybe. Avoid weekends on all costs. Place itself has a cafeteria, you can stop for a coffee - very expensive, only if you were able to park there first. Super windy place as well. Be careful Formentor is closed for private cars between mid June to the mid September. Better check before going by your own car or rented car.

I believe that the area around Cap Formentor and the Lighthouse itself is wonderful. Sadly we weren’t able to get there.

We wanted to go there by car in March 2022, off season, at a workday, not the weekend. There was no bus available at that time.

The road is blocked at around km 7 after Formentor beach. There is space for approx. 10 cars to park at the roadblock. All other cars have to wait in line which results in rather long traffic jams. Keep in mind that turning around with very big cars on the road can be tricky or impossible.
We had to turn around without making it to the beautiful scenery.

Unfortunately there are no signs ahead of the roadblock which clearly (!) tell you what to await there.

Very nice place to visit !!! I like visiting lighthouses because often you can find them on beautiful places, just as this one.
Don’t try to drive with your car because you can’t . Halfway there is a parking and if you want to visit the end, you need to take the bus.
It is much easier to take the bus to Formentor in Alcúdia for les than €5 and do the ride without worries.
Every 35 minutes you can take the bus back. We walked part of the road back (about7,5km) until the first busstop. This way we could enjoy the nice views along the road. This is really a highlight to do !

What an experience. We travelled to Cap de Formentor by bike and judging by the queue of cars to park at the lighthouse its the best way to travel to it. It was worth every pedal, the views are spectacular. The road is a perfect surface to cycle on. There is a lovely coffee shop at the light house for that much needed cup. This is a must visit place on the island.

It is an excellent and wonderful beach with a nice view on the island.
The car parking is very expensive as it coast 0,05€ per min, we then paid 6€ for only 2 hours.
Note : there is a wonderful spot where you can take a beautiful pictures

I saw that another user has written in march 2022 that the road was blocked for cars. However, after some thorough research, I found that the road is supposed to be blocked only from June 15th to September 15 2022.

This is not the case!

I went by car on June 1st 2022 and the road is still blocked for cars AND bicycles. No one was allowed to pass the roadblock about 6 km before the lighthouse.

Luckily there is another beautiful viewpoint on the way to the lighthouse (called Mirador Es Colomer) where we stopped for some great views. If not we would have been very disappointed to have travelled the road up the mountain for nothing.

The pictures are from Mirador Es Colomer and Cala Figuera where we went afterwards.

Cap Formentor is the northern tip of Mallorca island - the end of Serra Tramontana mountain range.
I've visited it some 20 y ago and wanted to repeat it this summer.
However, when we reached the same name beach (terrific one, see that review) we found the road closed with info boards.
Namely, you cannot drive your own vehicle (except with special permit) to the Cap any more. You must park there, by the beach and take the bus. There's a heavy fine if you proceed driving.
This is applicable to high season only (June - Sept), so I guess out of this period you can still go.
We didn't want to bother with the bus, so returned to Playa Formentor.
