Cala FigueiraThis spectacular "U" shaped sea gorge ends in a beach between steep walls; the right ones are vertical, made of high rock, while the left ones are made of marès (sandstone) and are lower and sloping. Fumat (334 meters high) rises to the rear.The beach here, into which a torrent flows, consists of sand and pebbles covered with posidonia. Two rocks appear opposite the coast. The predominant vegetation is garrigue with mastic bushes, dwarf palms and bushes. Pine trees only crown the steep walls.
The water and underwater conditions are dangerous for anchoring in north-northeast winds. The depth over sand and stony ground varies between five meters at two hundred meters from the shore and three meters at one hundred and fifty meters from the coast. When entering, it is advisable to leave the two small islands in the interior to port. Port de Pollença is 10.2 nautical miles away.
Getting there by car is easy, just follow the signs. Although it is located near the road to the overwhelming Cap Formentor (about 200 meters above sea level) and has indescribable panoramic views, the number of visitors is low. It is advisable to walk the last 1,400 meters along a dusty path in poor condition.
