“At the edge of the word”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Lighthouse is on the furthest edge of the island. Road there goes up to the hill and takes approx 20min. Some "mirador" stops with nice views to the island in the middle. Lighthouse stands on the edge of the cliff. You can make some nice pictures up there.

“Stupendous views”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

This old lighthouse faces East and commands stupendous views over the Mediterranean from 100 meter high cliffs. Jules Vernes called this the end of the world... A plaque tells how he came here.

Come early to see the sunrise and then have a coffee at the small bar. Or just walk around admire the cliffs, the sea, the seabirds and the sun.

“A really "must see" place”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

At the southern most tip of the island you have to go here to look at the lighthouse and the cliffs. There is also a monument to Jules Verne who wrote a novel including the place I think. There is a very nice bar restaurant here also well worth tying for a simple lunch and a few beers.
The near by village of La Mola hosts the hippy market on Wednesdays and Sundays - also worth a visit
