Information on traffic regulation at the Formentor lighthouse
Environmentally preserve one of the most iconic spaces on the Serra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is something we all must do, which is why we regulate traffic at the Formentor lighthouse during the summer.
The 2018 Pilot Mobility Plan reduced the flow of visitors during peak hours by 90% or, in other words, from 300 to 20 vehicles during peak hours. All of us at the different administrations involved in managing this space (Council of Majorca, the Balearic Islands government, the Pollença Town Council, Ports of Balearics and DGT) have decided to work together to conserve the essence of the Formentor lighthouse and commit to a sustainable and safe visit that lets the peacefulness of the surroundings be preserved and the unique experience it represents for visitors.
