My wife and I got around Formentera on bikes while were staying near Migjorn beach. We followed a lot of "green routes", including one up to La Mola, and we were glad we put up with the long climb - approaching the La Mola lighthouse along the long straight road, really did convey a sense of it being the end...

El Pilar de la Mola is located on the highest part of Formentera. While heading there I felt like driving on the Alps, a lot of hairpin bends and fresh air! While climbing up, the landscape you leave on your back is simply wonderful, you'll see the whole island, from Cap de Barbaria up to S'Espalmador. I suggest to visit... More

We are coming here with a scooter, but there is a bus stop with bus also. The taverna is not working because of end-season. Nice place, but the lighthouse is nothing extra (seen some nicer in Portugal), also, the arounding area with plants are the same in all island, but you get a feeling of "ending world" at this place....

The petrol vapor lamp was converted to electricity in 1970 and provides 3000 watts that flashes every 5 seconds w/ a range of > 43 km. It's completely automated and also remote controlled by technicians in Ibiza. The... More

All locked up so couldn't look round. Great views from where it is situated. The island is so short that you might as well come out to this point to have a look

a must to see, with its breathtaking views, near to La Mola village. Ideal trip on a Hippy Fair night.

Set on the cliffs the views around the lighthouse are very good . There is a notice board in several languages explaining its history but the gates to the small grounds around it are locked . The surrounding area has great views and lots of ghekkos of different shapes and colours running around

We walked down the dead straight road from Pilar de la Mola to get to this exclamation mark in the east end of Formentera. We could have gone by bus or driven ourselves like most people, but it was great to see the lighthouse gradually fill the view. We had a beer in the café at the end and looked... More

Lovely view 142m above sea level. Best visited on the Green route trip for 15 euros around the island from Savina port. There is a small shop but no refreshment options.

Easy access, you don't need to walk much. The lighthouse was right there and very pretty with a beautiful view of the infinity of the sea...
