Port of Soller is a wonderful little village situated in one of Mallorca's most beautiful horseshoe harbours on the west coast. Surrounded by the Tramuntana mountains, this town has the best of both worlds - magnificent mountain scenery and a sea view to boot.
It has not been over-developed in the past and this fact is being taken advantage of now by attempts to turn it into a sophisticated holiday destination. Add to this the proximity of the charming inland town of Soller (5 km away and accessible by vintage tram), and you have the almost perfect place for a vacation.
The bay is lined by a sandy beach with a pedestrianised promenade behind, where you will find cafes, restaurants and shops. Port de Soller still has an air of tradition about it, but there are now several more contemporary places to hang out and sip decent cocktails.
The Jumeirah Group have opened a super-luxury hotel on the hills above Port de Soller, which promotes itself as one of the most luxurious places to stay in Europe, let alone Mallorca. As a result, the town has undergone a bit of facelift, with the sea-front being redeveloped, and the tram line that runs to Soller being re-routed.
