Formentor restrictions

If you are visiting the island over the next two months, be aware that access by road to Formentor beach and lighthouse will be restricted as from 9th July. There will be no access from 10.00 until 19.00 hours daily until 31st August.

A shuttle bus starts on Monday 9th July and goes to the beach and lighthouse, starting at 0945 and roughly at 30 minute intervals. There is only a small car park near the bus station, so I don't know where everyone will park.

The order refers to vehicle access so don't know if motorcycles and bikes are likely to be included.

Re-reading this order the road restrictions apply from Formentor beach to the lighthouse and not the whole way from Puerto pollenca.

Been waiting for this to happen, the road at the lighthouse gets gridlocked daily in the summer so not surprising.

Presumably the shuttle bus will stop on 31 August when access is allowed again?

The big problem is that there is very little parking at the lighthouse. We drove there a couple of weeks ago and turned around because there was nowhere to park.

Re 3: Yes - I believe that is the case. It will only run during this period.

Thanks luckjon. Pity, it would have been good to be able to get it when we are there in October.
