Favaritx Cape, one of the oldest geological places on the island of Menorca, is located at one end of the Albufera des Grau. Defined on numerous occasions as Menorca's most supernatural landscape, it is located 17 km away from Maó. At the top of the cape, where the vegetation is almost non-existent, stands one of the most famous lighthouses on the island of Menorca; the Favaritx Lighthouse, built in 1922. With a black and white tower 28 metres high, this imposing construction is one of the must-see visits on the island. On the way to the lighthouse, you will find the Cós des Síndic, a small natural lake. It is a temporary water pond (bassa temporal) that forms when there are storms. It is of great ecological importance, as it is a resting and feeding place for some migratory birds.
