All locked up so couldn't look round. Great views from where it is situated. The island is so short that you might as well come out to this point to have a look

Set on the cliffs the views around the lighthouse are very good . There is a notice board in several languages explaining its history but the gates to the small grounds around it are locked . The surrounding area has great views and lots of ghekkos of different shapes and colours running around

We walked down the dead straight road from Pilar de la Mola to get to this exclamation mark in the east end of Formentera. We could have gone by bus or driven ourselves like most people, but it was great to see the lighthouse gradually fill the view. We had a beer in the café at the end and looked... More

Lovely view 142m above sea level. Best visited on the Green route trip for 15 euros around the island from Savina port. There is a small shop but no refreshment options.

Easy access, you don't need to walk much. The lighthouse was right there and very pretty with a beautiful view of the infinity of the sea...

Visited this by bike on a day trip (La Mola--> Barbaria), chiringuito/bar was just getting set up so we didn't have a chance to have a drink there, but regardless, the lighthouse and the jawdropping cliffs are well worth the visit. Be cautious that the climb up to Pilar de la Mola isn't for anyone, it's quite a huff and... More

While I consider the lighthouse at Cap de Barbaria to be better, the trip and it's vistas are definitely better for this lighthouse. The lighthouse itself is very nice and the cliff is great but what will leave you most impressed is climbing the small mountain of La Mola, and the views of the rest of the island from it.... More

Visited the lighthouse on Formentera. Something else to see on the island if you tire of the beach. Really nice view of the ocean. Not much else to see or do. Done in about 10-20 minutes.
