Among the cycling routes that we usually enjoy the most with the guests of our aparthotel in Pollensa, the one that runs along the Formentor road and ends at the lighthouse of the same name is undoubtedly the one that stands out.
Preparing for the Faro de Formentor cycling route
In order to enjoy this cycling route that starts in Puerto de Pollensa, it is necessary to have some technical or physical preparation beforehand. Although it is not an excessively long route, there are parts that are physically intense, so it is necessary to save energy to be able to complete it.
The first thing we will have to have well prepared is our sports equipment: bicycle, suitable clothing for the season and climate, food and hydration. These are the basic points that we cannot forget if we want to enjoy this route without any inconveniences.
At the DUVA Aparthotel we have all the facilities and professionals so that you don't have to worry about anything. Our mechanics will take care of getting all your equipment ready and in case you are missing something, we can surely solve it with our own equipment or that of our shop specialised in road cycling.
In case you need to rent a bike or other equipment, you can also count on us as we have our own equipment at your disposal.
When to plan the cycling route to the Faro de Formentor lighthouse
This route can be done all year round, however, the midday temperatures during the summer can be too high. Therefore, from our aparthotel in Pollensa we recommend you to choose the spring or autumn months where the weather is milder.
Our aparthotel opens before the summer season starts precisely so that our cycling enthusiasts can come and enjoy cycling routes with us,
The surroundings: Port of Pollensa and Formentor
In addition to the climate and the cycling facilities we offer at the DUVA Aparthotel, this cycling route is very popular thanks to the environment through which it passes.
The Formentor peninsula is located in the northern part of the island of Mallorca. It is a protected natural area with a high landscape value, as it is not only by the sea, but also at the end of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
This route follows a simple, winding road that climbs from Puerto de Pollensa towards the end of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range and ends at the northernmost point of the island.
Throughout the route we will have the comfort of a road and the uniqueness of the Balearic landscape. Mountain and coast at the same time, which is not very common in routes outside the island of Mallorca.
The Formentor road: a privilege exclusively for cyclists
One of the great advantages of this route for cyclists is that for a large part of the year (in the summer months), it is closed to car traffic.
To avoid overcrowding in the coves of the Formentor peninsula, vehicles are not allowed to enter at certain times of the day, which will allow us to enjoy the route in a safer and quieter way.
This route is a round trip, so when you reach the Faro de Formentor lighthouse and after regaining your strength, you can start the return journey, which is easier and smoother as it is mostly downhill towards Puerto de Pollensa.
Depending on the time of year, there is a bar-restaurant at the Faro de Formentor where you can enjoy a short break before continuing your route.
