We visited the lighthouse on a beautiful sunny day, and drove through lovely countryside on the way. There is a car park and then you walk along a track for a few minutes to get there. It is very rocky so watch your footing. As the gate was locked we had to climb over the wall. There is a little... More

A very different type of landscape to much of Menorca - very dramatic. Impressive lighthouse, little cafe and museum. This is a very unspoiled attraction. Well worth a visit. Sturdy shoes are advised as the terrain is rocky.

We walked from Tirant along a good track.I did it in sturdy sandals. Lovely views of sea. Nice place to stop in a wee cove....a place to sit on stone steps and a shelter from the sun. Joined car road and a long stretch up to lighthouse. Cafe was open for beers and sangria and snacks. Very welcome that was... More

The lighthouse itself is more than a century old and sits on a rock overlooking the expanse of the Mediterranean. The view from atop is stunning and it is well worth the drive to get there. Recommended!

Nice drive out to Lighthouse, partly along narrow roads but with passing places. Scenery is gorgeous and the Lighthouse is impressive. There are facilities here but they could make much more of this attraction. When we were there, a groom was waiting with the priest for the arrival of the bride. We went first thing and when we left. It... More

The best sunset in Menorca. You can seat on the rocks to see the sunset. No bars for aperitif just a beautiful lighthouse, a terrace and the rocks to see the sunset.

The roads leading to the lighthouse are quite narrow but the majestic views of the coast and emerald green water are priceless. The contrasting landscape & vegetation and the beauty of it all humbled us all. This is nature at its best :) It's very, very windy at the lighthouse and definitely not suitable for skirts & dresses. You can... More

With a lighthouse this cape is the most northern point of Menorca. Nice view over Fornells bay and the ocean . Nothingelse special.

We are fortunate to be able to walk here from our villa and so visit regularly. Up until this year it has been simply a place to walk to, admiring the views. Entry was not permitted & there was little to see (except the views and photo opportunities). This year we made our annual pilgrimage and we're delighted. The car... More

Visited on a very windy Saturday. Sea scape spectacular. Take a torch to experience the tunnel that emerges on the cliff face! Lots to explore around lighthouse and an interesting new museum for only €3. Little snackbar on site
