Working fishing port
Cala Figuera is a picturesque, harbour town in the south east of the island around 60 km from Palma and to this day, it remains a working fishing port.
Beautiful painted houses with slipways reaching down to the water’s edge, steep scrubby escarpments, fig trees and crystal waters all help to make the town impossibly pretty.
Great seafood restaurants
Despite being located to some of Mallorca’s busiest resorts, Cala Figuera does not have a touristy feel to it, you’ll see a few yachts lining up beside the smaller working boats, apart from that it really does retain a feeling of a traditional fishing town especially at dawn when the catch comes in and the fish are offloaded.
Being a fishing town and as you would expect, you will find some great seafood restaurants around the harbour.
Picturesque traditional residences
There are no sandy beaches or easily accessible swimming areas in Cala Figuera; which is one of the reasons it remains largely untouched by mass tourism.
The first houses were built here towards the end of the 19th century and today, the town has some of the most picturesque traditional residences in the whole of Mallorca, as well as a number of millionaires' mansions overlooking the scenic harbour entrance.
