Things to do in Port de Sóller

Port de Sóller is a harbour town. Originally it was from here that the oranges grown in the Sóller area were shipped. Today, the harbour caters mainly for yachts.

-Port de Sóller’s two beaches are the only sandy ones on majorca’s west coast. Even though they’re not very wide, both these beaches offer safe swimming in the calm, shallow waters. A beachfront promenade is lined with shops and restaurants if you need a little respite from the midday sun and don’t want to return to your Port de Sóller holiday home just yet.

-Outdoors activities are terrific in the area around town and include hiking, cycling and mountain-biking. Port de Sollér holiday apartments are the perfect base from which to explore the many paths that lead along the bay or up into the hills and mountains overlooking the village. You can go on a walking tour or rent a bicycle if you don’t want to go it alone. If you’re feeling more adventurous, canyoning in the mountains is a relatively new but increasingly popular activity. You can also head for the water and explore the coastline by kayak or yacht.

-Port de Sóller tramway links to the larger inland town of Sóller. While this is a practical form of public transport, the tram has also become one of the area’s major tourist attractions. In operation since 1913, this was majorca’s first electrical tramway and some of the original cars are still in use. The route stretches along the bay at Port de Sóller and through gorgeous countryside all the way to Sóller, about 3 miles away. At the station building in Sóller, don’t miss the art museum with works by Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró.

The architect of this impressive façade was Joan Rubió i Bellver, who also designed the Banco de Sóller and was a disciple of Antoni Gaudí. Sóller also has some fascinating museums, like the Natural Science Museum and the Can Prunera, and art gallery with a permanent collection of works by not only Picasso and Miró but also by Magritte, Matisse, Basquiat and other artists. The town’s botanical gardens are renowned too.

The apartment was excellent - everything is of a very high standard - the hosts are so helpful and friendly, We would definately recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday, yet with activities (walking/cycling) on the doorstep.
