About a month ago, access to Formentor was restricted between km 2 and the beach and from the beach to the lighthouse between 10:00 and 19:00, but that hasnít stopped people visiting the lighthouse.

The gauging data recorded by the DGT registration meters at the beginning of the restricted section and on the beach, reveals that the bulk of trips by private vehicle to the beach occur between 10:00-19:00 and most are at dusk. 113,177 trips were recorded on the road between June 15 and July 17.

Restrictions have been in place between the beach and Formentor lighthouse since 2018 and they were extended to cover the entire road this year, for the first time.

Only previously authorised vehicles, such as workers and residents of the restricted area, reduced mobility vehicles, emergency services and the Formentor shuttle can travel between the beach and the lighthouse during restricted hours.

Drivers who only drive from Puerto PollenÁa to the beach can request authorisation ...

The aim is to raise awareness amongst visitors and residents so that they use the shuttle instead of private vehicles to visit Formentor.

The restrictions at Formentor will remain in force until September 15.

Roadworks on Formentor access road

In September 2021, the Balearic Port Authority announced that urgent repairs were required after an embankment collapsed and work was also needed on part of the access road to the lighthouse.

Work has been underway for weeks and it's not likely to be completed until mid-June, but hundreds of drivers are just ignoring the signs that the road is closed due to road works, then they get trapped for hours and canít go back towards the beach because thereís so many cars itís impossible to turn around.
