Best view of the sunset but pay attention to the street to reach it. It's thin and with cars is not so safe. If with motorbike look after the cars. The view is amazing, the sunset is great and the sea is amazing

Located on the southern tip of Formentera is the lighthouse of Cap de Barbaria. While the lighthouse is a nice sight on the edge of a massive cliff overlooking the sea, it is the view themselves that are what are truly spectacular. Trust me, if you come here come for the sunset it is absolutely phenominal and you'll see a... More

Cap De Barbaria took my breath away! The view is simply beautiful and the surrounding is peaceful. This is one tour site to visit while in Formentera. It is picturesque and breathtaking!

Loved the views from Es Cap de Barbaria Lighthouse. The clips are just amazing. The best way to get there is by a motorbike.

Did this as part of a day trip and it was a nice place to stop and admire the views but do be careful of the cliff edge as there is no safety barrier.

It's breathtakingly beautiful in person. You can walk around the enclosure and right to the cliff edge (not for people with vertigo). I've wanted to visit for about 10 years or so since the movie came out. I would strongly suggest to go very early as the road is very narrow and fills up with cars and scooters which kind... More

El Far de Barberia is one of the two lighthouses in Formentera, the other one is La Mola lighthouse. It is located in the Cap de Barberia (Barberia Head in English), one of the parts rougher and less populated in the island. The lighthouse is very beautiful and smaller than other one, but it was unfortunately in works, when we... More

A nice scooter ride along some long narrow roads but worth the ride even just go climb down the hole and take a picture off the cliff and pile some stones
