The road to the lighthouse is closed quite early. The way there is just the street - you have to walk the road for around 3km. The lighthouse itself is closed for visitors and access to the property prohibited. There is nothing like at Cap d' Atrux, for example.

If you don't want to go to Cap de Favaritx, it is not really worth the boring walk. There seems to go a bus, too, but what you get is still the same.

If you want to go to the beaches (Cala Presili, Platja d'en Tortuga) you walk the road around have the way and turn right following the signs. At around 1km you reach the beach. Much better than the lighthouse ;-)

Most beautiful lighthouse! We drove out in early March on a very windy day. Drove within 100 yards of the lighthouse. Easy walk maybe 5 minutes. The lighthouse was not opened, not sure if it ever is open? Well worth the drive from Mahon to see this strikingly beautiful structure.

As often you see the lighthouse from far away. You come closer and it thrones on the rocks there. Take your time to move around, it is worth to see it from the rocks closer to the sea.

There is something a little depressing and mournful about this bit of coast. Maybe it is the dark, almost black rocks or just that it wasn’t a sunny day. Given that it is now only accessible by bus from Mahon, or a very long walk I would give it a miss and go to see the lighthouse at Cavelleria instead.

Close by the area of Es Grau is the dramatic and almost surreal surroundings that encompass the Favaritx Lighthouse often referred to as a lunar landscape by reviewers it’s a misnomer as the backdrop is too blue and on my visit truly windy. The landscape is akin to places like Tabernas in Andalucía or parts of the centre of Lanzarote but offers a great addition to the seascape and the lighthouse itself. The black and white helical pattern of the tower is pure theatre and designed to be eye catching and so it is. You may come to see the lighthouse but be careful the Tramontana wind does blow you away, quite literally.

Recommend on a sunny and calm day especially if you want some photographical mementos.

You have to park about 30 minutes walk from the lighthouse and walk the rest of the way. There is no cafe at the lighthouse so you have to go prepared. There are a number of bays and beaches to stop off at but again go prepared.

Absolutely beautiful place, we stopped there for a short while, wish we had more time to explore. But the scenery and views were fantastic, rock everywhere, quiet different to the rest of Menorca.
However drive up there was something else and while I was enjoying beautiful views from passenger seat my partner was trying very hard get us there (and back) alive.

Located in Unesco Biosphere area at S' Albufera des Grau. So beautiful but lunar landscape. Silent location and unique place. Easy to reach from Mahón bus station by Favaritx bus (30 minutes).

We visited this place an hour or two before sunset and there were around 4 or 5 amateur photographers waiting for the perfect shot. It stands imposingly on top of a rocky outcrop, surrounded on two sides by water. The surrounding area is part of the Es Grau Reserve, so it’s important to stick to the walking path. The landscape on the way to the lighthouse is lunar, with strange rock formations created by the slate-like black stone. It was a beautiful setting, with waves crashing on one side and quiet tranquil waters on another.
