Welcome to Fornells


Located in the north, which is known for its unspoilt and very often, deserted beaches, Fornells is a sleepy resort and fishing town. Originally founded to serve the 16th century castle as a defence against the Barbary pirates, all that remains of the military is the watchtower perched upon a hill, which visitors can visit. Fornells' quaint waterfront area lined with shops and restaurants bustles during the summer months, but remains quiet the rest of the year. Travellers can enjoy water sports here, such as windsurfing and scuba divers can enjoy an excursion to the marine park off the north shores and marvel at the magnificent colours and marine life.
