Tucked into a beautiful horseshoe shaped bay with the Tramuntana mountains in the background, the Port of Soller is one of the prettiest stops on your Mallorca itinerary. The bay is well sheltered if you don’t want to go into the marina itself. We recommend heading further inshore to the town of Soller, a charming town where sitting in the main square and soaking up the scent of oranges, wandering the narrow streets and enjoying the scenery is all part of the order of the day.
