Cala Bóquer is located on the north eastern edge of the Bóquer valley (Vall de Bóquer). This valley is a 700 km² nature reserve in the Serra de Tramuntana. The mountains extend in the north west of the island and crash into the sea at the northernmost point, Cap de Formentor. Due to the occurrence of numerous rare bird species, the valley was designated as a special bird protection zone. The closest town to the bay is Port de Pollença. It is a well-known spot for water sports and is located about six kilometres from Cala Bóquer. Cala Sant Vicenç, which shares its name with the adjoining village is located about 3.5 km from the bay.
