Cala Figuera (Fig Bay) is a picturesque bay and the same village with about 700 inhabitants on Mallorca's southeast coast. Cala Figuera is considered the most beautiful fishing village of Mallorca. The two-part bay resembles a fjord with its cliffs and reaches deep into the country. It used to be the port of Santanyi. The natural harbor is still used today as a fishing port. The harbor basin is lined with fishing boats and boat garages. The fishermen's houses were built directly on the rocks. Cars may not drive in the port of Cala Figuera, large mass hotel facilities are missing. Tourists like to visit Cala Figuera, but not overly, because there is no private sandy beach. Bathing beaches can be reached nearby for example in Cala Santanyi, Cala Mondrago or Cala Llombards. Some restaurants invite you to linger in Cala Figuera, especially recommended fresh fish. The small fishing boats are located in the idyllic harbor of Cala Figuera and if the fishermen are not bringing their catch ashore, they can be seen patching the nets or repairing their boats. Despite the tourism boom in the 1970s and 1980s, time seems to have stopped here. The place has managed to preserve its charm as a picturesque harbor town and is even considered the most beautiful of Mallorca today. Every year, a large number of famous artists are lured to Cala Figuera, mainly because of the openness of its inhabitants and the picturesque landscape. In addition, many well-known painters, musicians, architects and other artists have settled in and around Cala Figuera. Particularly popular among the painters are the cliff landscapes and the bay with the fishing boats. You can also get an idea of the way of life and culture in a typical Mallorcan village, which is no longer possible in most parts of Mallorca due to the large number of tourists and the infrastructure designed for them. The locals are hardly influenced or disturbed by the few tourists, they continue to live their normal lives as if there were no visitors looking over the fishermen's shoulders as they work in the harbor.
