It is also possible to visit the beautiful nature reserve Parc Natural de Mondragó, which with its almost 800 hectare ecosystem, offers two romantic sandy beaches, wrapped in the most beautiful green vegetation.

Enjoy the many small beaches

Cala Figuera enjoys a fantastic location in the southeastern corner of Mallorca, close to many little coves and beaches protected from winds. A 10 minute drive from the village you will find the Mondragó Park where one of Mallorca’s absolute best beaches is found. In the neighboring area of Cala Llombards you will find the picturesque cove of Caló des Moro.

Go see the spectacular es Pontas rock

Es Pontas is an arched horseshoe shaped rock that erects out of the water just off the coast between Cala Figuera and Cala Llombards. The rock has probably been millions of years underway to have this unique shape which makes it a true wonder of nature. There is a vantage point on the cliffs, an obvious place to post updates to your instagram.

Enjoy the great network of country roads

Cycling is by far one of the most popular activities to do in Mallorca, and it’s no different in Cala Figuera. The fishing village is well connected to the extensive network of country roads leading about in the charming landscapes.

Go for a nice walk

Walking is something most people can enjoy, and you will find plenty of reasons to stretch your legs in Cala Figuera. Walking along the coastline is an obvious one, enjoying the views of the Balearic sea. But there is also the nearby Mondragó nature park, one of the island’s most beautiful natural areas. You can also climb to the ancient chapel on top of the Consolacio hill and enjoy the magical views over the entire coastline.
