The road to Faro de Formentor is undoubtedly one of the most popular in Majorca, along with the Sa Calobra route. There we have to challenge the Coll de sa Creueta, an altimeter that requires a certain level, just over 3 km with an average of almost 6% on its slope from Port de Pollença.
The climb has several long and steep ramps in some sections that will demand both mentally and physically. If we manage our pace well, with a little extra effort we will be able to reach the Coll de sa Creueta in the series of small bends that precede its summit, where we will find the occasional ramp of over 15%.
The road is in perfect condition and has two lanes, although being one of the iconic areas of the island, it is often frequented by cars. The best news is that between the months of May and September vehicle traffic is restricted, making the ascent much more comfortable and not having to worry about cars during the climb. Not much can be said about the views from the Formentor viewpoint to give you a full description of what you can see, so the best thing is to cycle into the area to experience it for yourself.
By the way, if you want to know more about climbing the Faro de Formentor by bike, don't hesitate to read the post we have prepared for the occasion: an unrepeatable experience!
