Are you looking for nice places around the island? Then north of Majorca definitely worth a visit. We’re talking about the magic Formentor Peninsula, mountainous, barren places, in places overgrown forest… If you have not been here before you will be surprised.
For those of us who are interested in snorkeling, or just appreciate beautiful and clear waters Playa Formentor is a true paradise. It is a popular beach, so you should come relatively early if you are fussy with where you lay down your towel. There you can lie in the water and bob around, watch the small fishies or enjoy the beautiful view where the steep mountains meet the sea. One of the best features of this beach is that here you can choose between wither lying in the sun, or in the cool shade of the pine trees that grow almost all the way down in the water in some places.
After a day of sun, swimming and snorkeling you should continue along the road, to reach the northernmost tip of Majorca. Along the way there are more bays, such as Cala Murta. At the end of the road you will find the lighthouse “Faro de Formentor”, and here you can enjoy a great view, and a cold drink in the cafe located in the old lighthouse.
The lighthouse was opened in April 1863, after many years of hard work. Because of its isolated location workers were working even on Sundays and holidays. When Majorcas bishop found out about this, he decided that a temporary altar was to be established on the construction site, so the workers could celebrate Sunday Mass.
