Sa Penya Bosca is the name of the highest elevation within the municipality of Santanyí (280 m) just outside s’Alqueria Blanca which forms part of the Serres de Llevant mountains. Sa Penya Bosca is composed of a gentle hillside with a steep rock face on its northern side and a lush forest of Mediterranean pine and oak trees.
The Torre Nova defense tower in Cala Santanyí was built during the mid 17th century on top of an impressive cliff face known by the name of Sa Roca Fesa made of a Calcarenite type of limestone. The rocks come in a pleasant range of colour with tones of red, beige and yellow, quite similar to the colour of the Pedra de Santanyí extracted of the same rock type.
Es Faralló defines a biggish single rock surrounded by the sea. There are many Farallos or small illots in Mallorcan waters but only two exist in Santanyí, the best known of which is found on the coast near s’Almunia.
