General info: 

Cala Figuera on the Cap Formentor road in North Mallorca is quite simply stunning to behold. We were out for a day visiting the cape and on our way back from the lighthouse, a friend of mine spotted a bay way down below the road with the bluest waters he’d ever seen.

We pulled over to take a good look. It was breathtakingly beautiful and dotted with private boats bobbing happily in the pretty secluded bay. We found a wooden sign pointing ‘Cala Figuera’ into the trees, and we followed a rough path leading down from further along the road.

If you need easy access and family friendly head to nearby Playa Formentor but if you’re fit and able, willing to sunbathe on rock, want to escape the crowds of tourist land, and if you want to see somewhere truly beautiful, then pack a picnic (protect it from Garry), water and walking shoes, head to Cala Figuera and witness this spectacular bay for yourself.

Getting there: 

We scrambled for twenty minutes down a path clearly hewn by rainwater more than people, until eventually we emerged on rocky sea level, eye to eye with sapphire blue sea.

To get back to the road, it was a short but steep climb which took about half an hour along very uneven and unmarked paths.
