Cala Figuera is
located on the Formentor peninsula in the northern part of Mallorca.
There are only a few kilometres to the end of the peninsula where
you will find the popular vista point Cap de Formentor.
The beach in
Cala Figuera is located deep inside a bay surrounded by high
beach has both sand and gravel. However, there is far more gravel
than sand and also some rocks. At times, there may also be large
amounts of seaweed at the beach.
The mountains make
a great scenery for a swim in the completely clear water. It is very
relaxing and a more quiet experience than most of the other beaches
Cala Figuera is a
genuine natural beach with no facilities. Not even toilets.
There are signs by
the road directing the way to the beach, and the beach is located
1.4 km from the free parking space. The path is steep and rugged and
the walk through the wild nature takes 15-20 minutes.
Cala Figuera is not a child-friendly beach and neither is the path
leading to it. If you wish to bring your children to the beach, Cala
Formentor is a much better choice.
There are no water sports activities at the beach, but the
snorkelling conditions are perfect due to the clear water and the
rocks. Sometimes, a boat with divers enters the bay.
There are no restaurants within a radius of several kilometres.
Also, there are no beach bars or kiosks nearby, so remember to bring
plenty to drink for a hot day at the beach.
There are no holiday resorts near Cala Figuera. The nearest
holiday resort is
Puerto Pollensa, which is located
13-14 kilometres to the west.
