Cala Figuera, Santanyi - Tripkay

Cala Figuera, Santanyi

This port is one of the essentials spots of the island; a charming corner to contemplate the small and typical fishing boats called "yaguts" as well as white fishermen houses.

Cala Figuera is located south of the island of Mallorca in the municipality of Santanyí and is formed by a sea inlet that makes its way between the rocks and is divided into two inputs forming a perfect “Y”. In its two arms are Caló d’en Busques, that holds one of the most protected natural fishing ports in the Balearic archipelago and Caló d’en Boira, where Torrent des Homs flows into.
This corner of the island has a special charm because here you can enjoy views of the typical dry docks and some of the few stone houses that are still standing on the coast.

By the sea, the entrance to this natural harbor is really spectacular. Here you will find a tongue of water that juts inland along 500m surrounded by cliffs, cottages and forests full of traditional boats and small houses, that form one of the most beautiful landscapes of the island.

Cala Figuera is a perfect place for a getaway day where you can walk through its relaxed streets, take out your camera and photograph this fantastic natural environment, observe the fleet of traditional boats called “yaguts” their nets and other fishing gear drying in the sun next to the fishermen’s houses. And if you need a break, you can sit on one of the terraces near the port and eat at any of the restaurants.
