Port de Soller - Majorca Hotels

Mini guide to Port de Soller - Majorca


Puerto de Soller in Majorca lies about 30km to the north of Palma, and is a small town with a lively atmosphere. This compact resort is also home to a modern fishing port and two lighthouses and has an air of serenity maintained by the lack of high-rise developments.

Puerto de Soller's main attraction is its location. Framed by rugged mountains on one side and the blue Mediterranean on the other, it draws hordes of tourists every year. Although many people come here for the beaches, the narrow lanes of the old town near the harbour are also worth a visit. The beaches, although pristine, are small and can get crowded in the high season.

The port area, where a few of the older buildings are situated, is a pleasant place to walk. A number of narrow lanes amble upwards from here to the newer private developments on the hillside. However, if you follow the coastal road to the other side of the harbour, you come to the main seafront road opposite Repic Beach.

Shops in Puerto de Soller sell the usual souvenirs, as well as leather goods, Lladro porcelain, pearls and pottery. The beachfront strip contains many of the resort's restaurants, with menus ranging from fast-food takeaways to expensive seafood. The nightlife in the resort is low-key and centred around one or two music bars and hotel entertainment.

Local excursions include visits to the nearby city of Soller and its Saturday market, as well as trips to the picturesque villages of Biniaraix and Fornalutx. Slightly farther afield are the beautiful Cove of Sa Calobra and the Monastery of Lluc.

Son Sant Joan International Airport is eight kilometres from Palma. From here, buses run into Palma and shuttles depart for Puerto de Soller. Most resorts around the island also run their own shuttles. Ferries run daily from Barcelona and Valencia, arriving in Palma.
