Information and situation
Cala Figuera, the „Bay of fig trees“ is a small town in south-east of the island with only about 700 inhabitants. The name was officially mentioned in 1306 and this name was given to the place, because there are many fig trees growing around the bay. The town is located by a two-piece bay and it was the port of Santanyi long time ago. The both arids build an Y – at the end of the left arm there are fishing huts with their characteristic boat garages. The place kept its charm of fishing village in spite of the influence of tourism. However, luckily – tourism could not develop much, because of the lack of beach. Here you can still watch the fishers doing their work.
The locality is situated 60km away from the capital city of the island. The place that is often described as the most beautiful fisher village of Majorca is located in the fjord-like bay with its charming fisher houses and the characteristic boat garages.
The 6m high lighthouse “Torre den Bou” has already become almost the symbol of Cala Figuera and it is the most popular destination of excursions in the east of the island. Unfortunately there is no sandy beach here, but you can quickly reach the numerous bays in the neighborhood like Cala Santanyi, Cala Llombards or dreamlike Cala Mondrago. If it seems to be too quiet here sometimes, there is always a possibility to go to the beautiful locality Santanyi and visit the weekly market that takes place on Wednesdays and on Saturdays.
