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

Nice place with good sea view. If windy it's not easy and the street to reach the place is quite long with the motorbike.

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.

A visit highly recomended, I went by bike, quite tiring as you have to climb 150 meters, but well worth the effort. You can also go by scooter, car or even public bus. Don't miss grabbing some refreshments at the quaint bar. The cliffs are breathtaking, as the horizon views of the Mediterranean.

El Far de la Mola is the main lighthouse in Formentera, where there is another one (Barberia lighthouse). It is located near the little town called El Pilar in the highest part of the island. The lighthouse is very beautiful and the views from it are great and romantic (the cliff is more than 100 m high). Moreover, we came... More

Good view from here but nothing extremely memorable. On the way to the faro, few km before the town, there is a stunning panorama point where it's possible to have a look at the island from the top.

What i realised after being here is that it is rare to see such a view of the sea with no boats, no yachts no nothing - which is what you get here. almost 180 degrees of pure sea with nothing but nothing of sea. its breathtaking. calming and relaxing. breath in the fresh air and stare at the view...

At the end of a very long, very straight road lies this little wonder. The views of nothing but blue Sea are impressive. There's a Cafe and a shop selling local/touristy things and clothing. Drive out here, admire the views, chill out with a coffee and then head back inland along the long straight road! Don't visit if it's windy;... More
