Formentor Traffic regulations

Formentor Traffic Regulations

From now until the end of September, access to the Formentor lighthouse will be limited once again.

A collaboration between the Consell de Mallorca, the Council of Pollensa and the Balearic Port Authority, the regulations are to preserve and protect the outstanding scenic and natural heritage of the Serra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  In its first summer in 2018, traffic was reduced by 90%. In other words, traffic was reduced from 300 cars to just 20 during peak hours.

You can still get to the Lighthouse by bus and and visitors to Formentor beach can go by bus or chartered coach, or by taxis/private hire cars. Residents of Formentor and vehicles carrying people with reduced mobility can pass but prior authorization must be requested. Cyclists and hikers can go freely.

Private vehicles, motorbikes and trucks with no authorisation will not be able to pass the barrier for the hours from 10:00-22:30.

To get to the Lighthouse, catch the 334: Alcúdia – Port of Pollença – Formentor Lighthouse.

On the Formentor Peninsula, there are bus stops at the Mirador del Colomer, Formentor beach, Cala Figuera-Cala Murta and Formentor lighthouse.

Instead of paying the bus driver in cash, tap your bank card on entry and when leaving or use your intermodal transport card.

If you drive there without authorisation?

  • On the road to the Formentor Lighthouse (from km 8.7 to 19.6): Two-way traffic is forbidden during the hours of restricted access. Vehicles that have accessed this area prior to 10:00 a.m. must leave it by 9:59 a.m. Unauthorized vehicles will be fined.
  • To get to Formentor Beach (km 2 to 8.7): Limited access is available until all the authorized parking spaces are full.

Residents of Formentor, vehicles carrying people with reduced mobility, and other people entitled to ask for authorisation must contact the DGT (Traffic Department) by e-mail at least three working days in advance.
