View from the Cap de Formentor - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
These 350m high limestone cliffs are on the wild Formentor peninsular known as Cap Formentor on the north eastern tip of the island of Mallorca. A steep climb leads up the cliff path to the lookout point at the top of the picture. The tiny tower just visible at the extreme top of the picture is the Talaia d'Albercutx , which is also featured on this website. The bay of Pollensa can be seen behind the car park.

Panorama taken from the Mirador de Mal Pas viewpoint on the Formentor peninsula in northern Mallorca. The Península de Formentor is the final narrow, rocky spur of the Serra de Tramuntana region of Mallorca that stretches into the Mediterranean Sea. Unlike the beaches on the south of the island, the coastline here is sharp and jagged with steep cliffs and sharply inclined landscapes. Often the rock layers are inclined by up to 45 degrees producing some surreal landscapes.
A long windy road leads all the way along the Formentor Peninsula, passing the Mirador de Mal Pas and the famous Talaia d'Albercutx on the way. On the peninsula are two calas, the Platja de Formentor is tucked away on the southern side of the peninsula and has one of the earliest beach resort hotels ever built on Mallorca. The other, Cala Figuera, is one of the most inaccessible beaches of Mallorca.
This panoramic photograph shows some of the dramatic landscape in this part of Mallorca. In the picture the rest of the peninsula continues to a lighthouse at the far end. The Badia de Pollença (Bay of Pollenca) can just be seen curving round behind the Mirador de Mal Pas car park.
