The Moscarter / Portinatx lighthouse sits on the north coast of the island of Ibiza approx. 1.5 miles from the town of Portinatx. The walk up is quite rugged and can be achieved either through the surrounding woods or along the coast path that skims along the top of the rocks. The walk took about 30mins from the centre of Portinatx to reach the lighthouse and whilst you can not enter the tower the coastal views from the surrounding rocks are magnificent. There are no refreshment places nearby but it is only a short walk back to the nearest hotel / beech area.
The lighthouse is the tallest in the Balearic Islands and stands at 93 meters above see level with a light range of 18 nautical miles. The tower is a typical 1970's concrete structure and work on building commenced in 1975 but was not completed until 1977.
