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

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

there are two lighthouses on Formentera, the la mola one and this one. this one is more off the beaten track, along a bumpy single lane road. it has great views, but for me the atmosphere and feel of La Mola lighthouse was nicer. not sure why, it just felt "better" to me. if you have a spare hour or...

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

One of the things to do on the island. Once you get there, take to the right and find the hole. Get down the ladder and walk throughe the cave...enjoy the breathtaking view! PS: DON'T LEAVE ANY WASTE
