Located in the town of Port de Soller on the northwest coast of Mallorca, the expansive bay of Soller offers the only sandy turf along Mallorca’s western coast. This popular tourist destination and lovely resort offers two beach areas within its horseshoe shaped bay, surrounded by natural beauty and the Tramuntana mountains, the golden sands, clear blue seas and superb sea views all make it one of Mallorca’s top beach destinations amidst some of the island’s finest scenery. A train runs directly from Palma to Soller which connects hourly to the vintage tram taking you directly down to the port, making the bay easily accessible from the island’s city centre. Our webcam at the Port de Soller gives a great view of the beach and sometimes catches the tram as it tootles by!

The Port of Soller is lined with a variety of beach bars and restaurants. It’s a superb place for sundowners with a sparkling sea view. Make sure you book in advance over the busy summer months, or you could be left with your second (or more likely third) choice of restaurant!

Being a relatively quiet and peaceful coastal town, the beachfront bars and marina area are about as lively as it gets. That be said, the bay is full of ambience with an intimate and relaxed atmosphere, lots of live music and occasional DJ performances. Livelier evening entertainment can be found in some of their trendiest hotel bars, but if you’re after anything more than cocktails up to midnight, Palma is only 40 minutes’ drive away.

Known for its tranquillity and natural beauty, it’s no surprise that Soller possesses a selection of hotels to choose from, varying from affordable to 5*. Eco-friendly boutique hotels can be found in the narrow streets behind the beach, with luxury brands boasting clifftop terraces overlooking the entire bay.

Setting & Location

Surrounded by the Tramuntana mountains, the region is well known for its hiking, cycling, scenic trails, breath-taking viewpoints and panoramic views of the coastline. The promenade encircling Port de Soller is perfect for leisurely strolling whilst watching the trams roll in and out of the bay. In the narrow streets filled with numerous shops, boutiques and cafes, you can also find a local maritime museum - ‘Museu de la mar’. Port de Soller serves as both a great beach day out or a fantastic resort from which to base yourself when exploring the rest of the island.

The town of Soller is just a short tram ride up from the port, with a further selection of restaurants and cafes in its central hub - Plaza de la constitución. Other places of interest to visit here include, the restored Art Nouveau building – Can Prunera, housing a permanent collection of fine art with temporary exhibitions, The Balearic Museum of Natural Sciences and the Jardí Botànic, home to Mallorca’s many plant varieties and just a short walk from the town’s centre.

Water Safety & Clarity

The water in this bay is very sheltered, so you can usually expect calm, shallow waters along the shore making it perfect for families and children. Lifeguards are on duty in the summer months.

Beach Quality

On the south side of the bay, ‘Repic’ beach is Soller’s largest and deepest sandy area at around 250 metres long and fairly shallow at 20 metres deep, meaning that space is sometimes hard to come by. ‘Es Traves’ beach, towards the harbour side of the bay was extended in the spring of 2012, increasing it to around 300 metres in length. The sand here is coarse and gravelly rather than silky soft, but the beach is generally kept very clean and tidy despite the summer swarms. Amenities are abundant with sunbeds and parasols available to hire, showers and public bathrooms on the beach, as well as easy access for the disabled and strollers.

Watersports Nearby

Popular with private yachts in need of shelter from western swells, the water in the bay remains calm, not only offering a safe anchorage but making it perfect for kayaking, paddleboarding and snorkelling. The marina offers several boat trips and boats or jet skis available to rent.


From Palma, it’s a quick and beautiful 30 - 40 minute drive up the Ma-11 through the tunnels under the mountains. There’s a stunning alternative hair-pin route for enthusiastic cyclists over the top of the Coll de Sóller.
