Last year’s experience was mid-September saturation. | PILAR PELLICER
When they first introduced the summer traffic restrictions for Formentor, someone must have reckoned that 7pm would be late enough as no one would ever go there after seven o’clock. Come that sort of time, and tourists - the British and the Germans especially - would be strolling along the front in Puerto Pollensa, making their way to one of many a fine establishment in search of tapas or Mallorcan lamb. Afterwards, a couple of massive G&Ts and it would be time for some shuteye. Formentor? Nice to look at as the sun sets. But actually going there to see the sunset?
