Majorca is famous for the last stretch on this scenic drive: the Cap de Formentor. The road on this peninsula is considered one of the most scenic drives in the world.

Sprawled with innumerable hairpin bends and magnificent vantage points this 140 km road takes you from Andratx in the south-west to a splendid lighthouse on the northern tip of the Baleares Island. Although the route is priceless, the grand finale of this scenic trip is the road snaking up to the lighthouse. Whilst dramatic panoramas of the ocean and neighbouring Menorca open up to you, the length of sheer drops increase: the lighthouse is situated at 384 m above the deep-blue sea. Enjoy the spectacular curving roads nestled in the mountains: you won’t find this thrilling combination of natural beauty and man-made roads again easily!
