Not to be mistaken with Cala Figuera de Pollença, it is a charming place, where we can contemplate the llauts (typical Majorcan fishing boats) and the old fishermen’s huts and boathouses. It has been a source of inspiration for many painters who captured the cove from all possible angles for its singular charm.
Seen from the sea, this natural harbour is a spit of water that goes inland for 550 m, surrounded by a series of cliffs and by bushes dotted with small houses and traditional boats.
At the tip of Cala Figuera stands the Torre d’en Beu next to the so-called lighthouse.
Cala Figuera cove is one of the deepest and narrowest in Mallorca. After a long 550 m S shaped inland, the sea inlet splits into two coves shaping a Y. One of the coves called Caló d’en Busques (on the left) is about 250 m long. It is where the port is located. And the other Caló d’en Boira (on the right) is about 200 meters long. The latter is less sheltered. At the end of both coves flow the homonymous streams.
The famous Santanyí stone (also known as marés de Santanyí) used to shipped from Cala Figuera.
You can hike form Cala Figuera to observe the always surprising natural landscape. From Caló d’en Boira, the Torre d’en Beu Lighthouse, offering wonderful panoramic views of that area can be reached.
