Not to be confused with Cala Figuera de Pollença, it is a charming corner, where we can contemplate the llauts (typical Mallorca fishing boats) and the old fishermen’s huts and boathouses. Which have been a source of inspiration for many painters who have captured the cove from all possible angles for its special charm.
This natural harbor seen from the sea is a spit of water that goes inland for 550 m, surrounded by cliffs that follow one another and by forests dotted with small houses and traditional boats.
At the tip of Cala Figuera we find the Torre d’en Beu next to the lighthouse of the same name.
Cala Figuera cove is one of the deepest and narrowest in Mallorca. After a long 550 m of land in the form of that elongated one, the sea entrance forks into two coves in the shape of the letter Y. One of the entrances is called Caló d’en Busques (on the left) of about 250 m which is where the port is located. And the other Caló d’en Boira (on the right) about 200 meters. The latter is less protected. At the bottom of both coves the homonymous streams flow.
In Cala Figuera the famous Santanyí stone (misnamed marés de Santanyí) was embarked for transport.
From Cala Figuera we can make excursions to observe its natural landscape that always surprises. From Caló d’en Boira we can reach the Torre d’en Beu Lighthouse, which offers wonderful panoramic views of that area.
