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.

Dental tourism is becoming very popular nowadays especially considering the high costs of treatment in Britain. In most circumstances the prices in Palma are 50% to 65% lower than they are in the UK.

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.

Cala Figuera

The rocky beach of Cala Figuera is recommended by divers and snorkelers, it has crystal clear water, colourful schools of fish and you’ll find horn corals clinging to the rocky ground. You’ll need to bring your own equipment though because there is nowhere to rent it from.
