Port de Soller Mallorca

Port de Soller is a beautiful town situated at the Bahia de Soller. But its unique feature is the old public transport tram from 1913 that connects Soller and Port de Soller. The friendly drivers even wait for a photo or two and keep smiling (now compare that to your hometown!). :-)

Tram Port de Soller

The ride between Soller and Port de Soller does not take long, but the historic coaches attract visitors whenever the trains arrive. The end point is at the harbour, where you can conveniently sit in a cafe to wait for the next train.

Beach Soller Mallorca

The Es Repic Beach of Port de Soller is a small, yet quiet and clean place, even during high season. The harbour protects the beach from any bigger waves or currents, so it's quite safe to swim here.

Another photo of Es Repic, this time photographed towards the harbour. The harbour is pretty active. Of course there are yachties, but you will also find small ferries for day-trips and fisher boats.

Deia Mallorca

The next stop on your trip along the north-west coast should be Deia, another beautiful small village (pop. 600), built around a hill with the church Sant Joan Bautista.

Deia Mallorca

Due to its exposed location, the village of Deia has been the target of pirates in the past. Today, the pirates are long gone (and have been replaced by real estate agents). By the way, if you meet a lot of Germans here, don't be surprised - a German public broadcaster filmed a TV series here ("Hotel Paradies"), and since it aired, Germany collectively has "discovered" this lovely spot.

Punta de sa Foradada Mallorca

A bit further down the road C-710 you will come across the Punta de sa Foradada, a small peninsula pointing straight to the sea. If you have the time, you may walk down from the parking lot to the peninsula. This may take up to one hour.

Son Marroig Mallorca

Alternatively, you may just enjoy the view of the sunset from the parking lot of the Son Marroig house like this couple does. The house was built in the 16th century and is used as museum today. When we were there, the restaurant was closed under re-construction, but we hope that they will re-open soon. It would be a pity if they didn't.
