Cala Figuera

Welcome to Cala Figuera, a picturesque fishing port located in the municipality of Santanyí, on the island of Mallorca, Spain. This hidden gem is known for its crystal-clear waters, breathtaking cliffs, and an atmosphere of tranquility, making it the perfect destination for those seeking a getaway from the tourist hustle. Cala Figuera retains the charm of traditional Mallorcan life, making your visit an authentic and unforgettable experience.

It features two inlets in the bay, Caló d'En Boira and Caló d'En Busques, bounded by shallow cliffs. The fig trees surrounding it are what give Cala Figuera its name.

In Cala Figuera, you can always see boats moored due to its fishing activity, as well as the traditional Mallorcan "llaüts". It is also a fantastic place for paddle surfing or kayaking. All of this can be rented with us at Redstartours. Our office is right at the entrance of the port at Carrer Verge del Carme, 52.

Despite Mallorca changing over the years and the tourist frenzy, Cala Figuera still retains its original essence. It had its heyday in the late 80s but knew how to prioritize its identity to continue being a fishing village of less than 1000 inhabitants.
