After passing the Port de Pollensa we start climbing up to the famous photo point “Es Colomer”. At the top of the hill with the altitude 190 m. we stop for a short break for some great pictures and then start the downhill. Passing the Formentor beach we follow towards the lighthouse at the very end of the cape. The road goes through pine tree forest and rocky cliffs. One more effort to climb to the lighthouse and here comes the time for a little rest, coffee and photos.
