LOCATION

Cala Figuera consists of two parts which look like a y, divided into Caló d’en Busques and Caló d’en Boira, where the torrent des Homs flows into the sea. This geological feature of cliffs is one of the longest, narrowest and most sheltered from the open sea of the Balearic Islands.

Cala Figuera consists of two parts which look like a y, divided into Caló d’en Busques and Caló d’en Boira, where the torrent des Homs flows into the sea. This geological feature of cliffs is one of the longest, narrowest and most sheltered from the open sea of the Balearic Islands.

Cala Figuera is characterized by an entrance of about a hundred metres, although they reduce to half of it, a situation that repeats itself for the next 300 metres until the access fork to Caló d’en Busques and Caló d’en Boira, where the cliffs of this sea inlet are not that high anymore, and then there are other 300 metres. Caló d’en Busques has one of the most sheltered natural fishing ports of the Balearic archipelago, with a breakwater of 30 metres that stops the water coming from the sea.

Following the coastline of the coves d’en Busques and d’en Boira you may admire the llaüts, the fishing boats, the fish market, the small houses of the fishers, the nets and other fishing equipments left at the sun for drying, the escars in the cliffs to leave small boats, the artificial dry docks and the small stone houses that are still there, although behind the pines you will also see some bigger houses and some hotels.
