Soller

39’ 47”.7 N, 2’ 41”.6 E
harbour on mallorca
Soller lies in the centre of the north coast of Mallorca, halfway between Cap Formentor and Puerto Andraitx. It is the only port in the long forbidding north coast, where the cliffs rise sheer up to 250 metres straight out of the sea. With fifty miles between Alcudia or Pollensa and Soller, this trip is not recommended unless settled conditions are forecast for several days, which is a shame as the Puerto Soller and the inland town of Soller itself are well worth a visit.

Puerto Soller

The bay of Puerto Soller is one of the better natural harbours on the island of Mallorca. A narrow entrance between the cliffs opens out into a circular bay with a marina and anchorages for crusing yacht charters. In common with many towns in the Balearics, the main town is separated from the historic port by a couple of miles. In Soller's case, a rickety but enjoyable Victorian train connects the two towns running through the towns, orchards of lemon trees and a variety of back gardens.

Puerto Soller has a popular wide sandy beach as well as an array of restaurants and bars.

Soller

The old town of Soller lies about a mile and a half inland of the port. It has a market which is open most days [check which ones] that can be found very close to the train stop. The town is worth an excursion to explore on foot.
