The classic, old Mediterranean town of Soller holds a special place in the hearts of holidaymakers in Mallorca. The town embraces Mallorca’s heritage. It’s streets are lined with traditional Spanish townhouses, quaint boutiques, coffee bars, and endless charming restaurants. Most of its visitors arrive from Palma on the vintage train and head here not only for the delightful Spanish town, but for the picturesque surroundings of the hills showing off the beautiful villas in Soller. Being the gateway to the Serra de Tramuntana, the surrounding countryside has great hiking routes, cycling routes and of course, the nearby port de Soller is known for its water sports.
Head down off the hills from the villas in Soller and you will come to the breath-taking horseshoe bay, port de Soller. With its magnificent mountain views and west coast location, the bay displays some spectacular sunsets. A long stretch of sandy beach and crystal waters bring sun-seekers from afar. The shallow calm sea, thanks to the sheltered bay, make it a great place for a dip to cool off. Kayaking, paddle boarding and pedaloes can all be hired from the beach. If you’re seeking more adventure, scuba diving is popular here thanks to the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. The traditional wooden tram from inland Soller, through lemon & olive groves, make the trip here more magical.
Remaining true to its traditional fishing harbour roots, seafood restaurants are in abundance here. A stroll along the promenade will leave you spoiled for choice. With inland Soller holding the more traditional culture, port de Soller holds the more contemporary quality. Stylish bars, fine dining restaurants and trendy eateries are popping up in the area. And for those seeking a more exclusive experience in Mallorca, you can charter a yacht from port de Soller to head around the stunning coastline. The nearby villas in Soller, are an excellent choice of accommodation to experience these spectacular locations.
