Located at the northern tip of Mallorca, Cape Formentor is a paradisiacal corner that majestically extends into the Mediterranean Sea, offering breathtaking panoramic views.

This cape is known as “The meeting point of all winds” or the “End of the World”, and a visit here will make you feel as if you were on the very edge of the planet. It is so named because here, given its high exposure to the coast, the winds of the Iberian Peninsula, European Alps, Atlantic Ocean, and North Africa have historically met, resulting in an iconic landscape in Mallorca.
