A tour of the coast town of Pollensa is an essential escapade during a visit to Majorca. Its beaches, golden sands and turquoise waters make this place a true Mediterranean paradise.

In addition to its unique coastline, the northwest area of Pollensa has loads to offer for curious travellers, those willing to discover places off the tourist beaten path. We suggest a visit to one of them: the Es Colomer lookout.

Access is through the Port of Pollensa, approximately 5 kilometres towards Formentor. To reach your destination, you’ll get to drive along a winding road and across beautifully Mediterranean landscapes.

The lookout, known as Mirador de Sa Creueta or Es Colomer, will offer you splendid views of the Formentor Cape. Undoubtedly, a magnificent location, well worth some time for contemplation... and more than a few gorgeous photographs as a souvenir.

The engineer Antonio Parietti Coll was commissioned to design the 18 kilometres that run towards the lighthouse. Stairs carved into the rock will guide you along spectacular views until you reach the edge, where a couple of small esplanades will allow you to delight in the best views of the island of Colomer.

Sea and mountain come together to display a wonderful landscape. We recommend you don’t miss the sunset. Many tourists and locals enjoy the privilege of this unique sunset, which often ends in admiration and with celebratory applause.

If you continue your journey, you’ll arrive at Formentor beach and its adjacent coves. From here, weather permitting and with a fully clear horizon, you’ll be able to recognize the island of Menorca in the distance.
