Puerto De Soller
The area is popular with middle-aged couples, those interested in walking and scenery, and anyone looking for a quiet, low-key holiday. Beaches are small with limited appeal and there's little for children to do, so not really for families or sun worshippers.

There is a small beach to one side of harbour comprises a narrow 300-yd strip of (none too clean) sand, augmented in places with imported material; gives way to shingle before petering out. Repic Beach, on the opposite side of the bay, has just ¼ ml of sand and shingle and slopes at the water's edge.

Daytime activities consist of boat trips to various coves; numerous hiking trails in surrounding mountains; water sports including windsurfing and sailing; pedallo hire; botanical gardens in Soller.

Nightlife provides one or two music bars and a disco, augmented by some music laid on by hotels.

As with most of the smaller resorts on the island, both Soller and Puerto de Soller, affords their visitors a good selection of quality restaurants, offering both local Mallorquin and international cuisine. Also, quite out of step with the rest of the area, there is even one well known fast food outlet. Being a port, Puerto de Soller does have a couple of noteworthy fish restaurants in the town. The first is called "Sa Llotja des Peix", which overlooks the harbour, and the other "Es Pescador" also offers a good selection of typical Mediterranean dishes.

Local excursions consist of half day: Soller and its Saturday market; picture-postcard villages of Biniaraix and Fornalutx. Full day: Cove of Sa Calobra by serpentine road or boat; mountain villages of Deya and Valldemosa; monastery of Lluc; Palma.
