Cap de Formentor, Formentor

#13 of 1,236 in Things to do in Majorca
With a view of cliffs that inspire awe and caution, Cap de Formentor is an epic drive. Look for a cave that opens to the sea about 8 m (26.2 ft) above the water. Inside this protected alcove is evidence of the prehistoric Talaiot culture. There are a handful of other lookout points to visit, the most famous of which is Mirador del Mal Pas. In 1996, a private weather station was built at one of the lookouts to send encoded radio transmissions, which are transmitted all over the world.
