Plan a visit to Soller, Mallorca!
Soller is a quaint town situated in the west of Mallorca, the town lies around 5km from the coast and it’s port – Port de Soller. Many people make a beeline for Soller each year, and once you have stood and marvelled at it’s beauty, it is easy to understand why. The town is busy, but not overcrowded, and like many other places in Mallorca, there are lots of friendly faces!
To plan a perfect day trip to Soller, it is a good idea to start in Palma, and take the train to Soller; this journeys through the countryside and gives you an opportunity to observe areas of Mallorca that you would not otherwise visit. This option is also favoured as it avoids the toll on the Palma Road. If you are more of an activity enthusiast, then there is also the option to cycle through the majestic Tramuntana Mountains – a tough, but rewarding route. From Soller, there is a vintage tram to Port de Soller, which you can take at your leisure after exploring the ins and outs of the town. We won’t give too much detail here – you must discover Mallorca, and Soller, for yourself!
In Port de Soller, the harbour immediately grasps your attention, with hundreds of boats and yachts docked, and creating a spectacular image that is not easily forgotten. There is a sandy beach with a walkway behind, and bars and restaurants lining the seafront, however, the ‘jewel’ of Soller is the prestigious Jumeirah Hotel on the clifftop. It is here where you should perhaps finish a day of exploring, although, to gain maximum enjoyment, it is best to ensure your arrival before sunset, so as to watch the sun sizzle into the sea in the evening. The best place to watch – Sunset Lounge Bar Jumeirah, with a cool cocktail in hand, finishing another great day of exploring Mallorca and the secrets of the island.
