About Port de Soller

A remote coastal village in north-west Mallorca, Port de Sóller is a long-time favourite of many visitors to the island, known for its beautiful setting and fabulous seafood. Hidden from much of Mallorca by the imposing Tramuntana Mountains, Port de Sóller has a rich maritime past, with tales of everything from 16th-century piracy to generations of fishing families whose boats still bob in the harbour. Accommodation options range from reimagined 1950s hillside hideaways to chic contemporary resorts, well-suited to families, friends or couples. The best places to stay in Port de Sóller all boast spectacular views of the bay — perfect for a magical Mediterranean escape.

Take the historic tram from the port into town and back again, admiring orange groves and picking a perch at a little bar or bustling seafood eatery for a delectable lunch. History buffs will adore walking up to the Torre Picada — a watch tower built to withstand pirate attacks — as well as discovering the area’s past at the Museu de la Mar, in a former monastery. In town, Saint Bartholomew’s Church dates back to the 14th Century, the Can Prunera Museum of Modernism houses works by famous artists, and the fragrant Botanical Gardens promise a lovely stroll. Foodies will delight in visiting the farmers’ market each Saturday.

Keen hikers or cyclists can clamber up the Tramuntana Mountains, following the Dry Stone Route, tackling the Coll de Sóller or venturing across the ravine of Biniaraix for marvellous views. Spend your days sailing, exploring nearby bays on private boat trips, building sandcastles on the beach with the kids, or swimming in the sea. An idyllic island destination, Mallorca is particularly busy during the summer months. Book your trip well in advance — the best places to stay in Port de Sóller fill up fast!
