Rent a car to go to Formentor:
Another option is to rent a car to visit Formentor beach. Then, you can also take the opportunitty to drive to the lighthouse, to visit Albercutx watchtower or to go to Cala Figuera for a bath. The options are wider, but have in mind this is a busy road, especially in Summer season.
You can visit our excursion shop in Port de Pollensa wehere we also rent cars. We work with a local company, so they are able to offer good prices and nice cars.
For those who like cycling, the bycicle is another option though it is first uphill, and not likely reccomended in Summer due to the heat.
