Definitely worth a visit. The views are great. We went on a hot day but there was a slight breeze. Only a couple of euros to get in but it's free on Mondays. We walked back down to Fornells using a little path - much quicker but not as smooth!

This is a fantastic viewpoint for Fornells. There aren't any facilities but the views are worth the journey alone. The surrounding area can be treacherous so keep an eye on children. The sea can change from calm and picturesque to treacherous and threatening.

If you are in Fornells it is worth checking out the Fornells Tower. The views from the top are absolutely breath taking. The staff on the reception desk are very friendly and they provide you with an English tour book. It is only a few Euros to go in.

We went on a Monday, it's free on Mondays. Bit of a trek up the slope from the car park but it's well paved. The tower is got up well to give you an idea of how it was when it was built. The views from the top are great if you can manage the tight spiral staircase.

Well worth the walk to this tower. Views are amazing and their is also a very small Prayer area on the journey towards the tower. A nice little insight as to the history of the island.

Walked up to the tower after we had lunch in Fornells & walked round the harbour. Car parking at bottom of hill. Well worth the walk for the coastal views.
