Cala Figuera is a district of Santanyi on the island of Majorca. The town of Cala Figuera stretches from high cliffs to the south of the town to the fishing harbour at the end of a Fjord-like inlet which holds some of the most picturesque traditional buildings in the whole of Majorca, as well as a number of millionaires’ mansions overlooking the scenic harbour entrance.
Despite the tourism boom in the 1970s and 1980s, time seems to have stopped here. The place has managed to preserve its special attraction as a picturesque port town and is even considered the most beautiful of Mallorca today. Cala Figuera offers no tourist beaches or easily accessible swimming areas, as a result of which it remains largely untouched by mass tourism. While the resort doesn’t have its own beach, there are several excellent ones for swimming nearby, including the nearest, 4 km south at Cala Santanyi or at Cala Llombard. These can be reached on foot or by the coastal bus “train”. At the same time, in the vicinity, there is no shortage of rocky coves for swimming.
Around the marina there are different bars and restaurants – an ideal place for a candle-light dinner overlooking the boats and the coastline. Cala Figuera offers as well lovely promenades along the cliffs.
