Puerto de Soller
The peaceful resort of Puerto de Soller is set in a beautiful horse-shoe bay and is a popular base for those seeking to explore the surrounding area and spectacular Tramuntana mountain range. There is a busy harbour in the bay where fishing vessels and pleasure cruisers depart and luxury yachts moor.
Soller and the port are approx half an hours drive from Palma Airport.
Puerto de Soller actually has two beaches, one at each end of its horseshoe bay. Es Traves is the resort's main beach and the longer of the two, the second beach just a 5 minute walk away is called Playa d'en Repic. Both beaches are narrow and offer a mix of sand and pebbles; sun-loungers, umbrellas and pedalos are available to hire. The pedestrian promenade connects the two beaches and is lined with a number of restaurants, cafes and seaside shops.
