Default Cars banned from Formentor lighthouse.

This from the DDM with Google translation :-

Pollenša prohibits access by car to the Formentor lighthouse from 9.30 am to 7 pm
The "pilot test" will be carried out between July and August.

Access to the Formentor lighthouse will be limited during this summer.

Access to the Formentor lighthouse will be limited during this summer. apb
This summer will be limited access by car to the Formentor lighthouse from 9.30-10 to 19 hours. This was announced yesterday by the mayor of Pollenša , Miquel └ngel March, after having a meeting with the Government , the Consell de Mallorca , the Road Consortium and Autoritat PortuÓria de Balears.
To end the endless queues of vehicles that form to access the lighthouse of Formentor , Pollenša has launched a "pilot test" that prohibits the access of cars during July and August and restricts the passage from 9.30-10 in the morning until 7:00 p.m. The objective of the competent administrations is to put an end to the "overcrowding and insecurity" that is created in this area during the summer months.

According to March, the limitations will only apply between the beach and the Formentor lighthouse. In this way, all those citizens and tourists who want to access this area should use the shuttle bus that the Government has launched. Only bicycles and residents in the areas of Cala Murta and Cala Figuera will have a special authorization to pass through this section.

My wife spotted this on a news site the other day as well.

We always try to squeeze a visit to the lighthouse in to our holidays in PP - the drive along the approach roads is part of the 'fun' of the visit.

It's perfectly understandable that they're doing this as parking is always at an absolute premium in the summer months.

However, my first thought was 'I don't think I would want to do that journey as a passenger in a bus'!

Equally, I'm not 100% sure that I would want to do it after 7pm when the light is sure to be fading on the return trip. But I guess that all adds to the fun of a trip to PP!

Come August, I will let you know what we ended up doing

Try the bus. You might find it's just the ticket. As long as you conduct yourself in an orderly manner.


I know, Groan, but it's the best I can do.

We often take the boat to get to Formentor beach and get the bus back or the other way round depending on timings.The bus driver has a very difficult job both ways but always makes it a very enjoyable trip but sometimes a trifle scary.
