Location and orientation
The coastal town of Port de Sóller is located on the Balearic island of Mallorca in the region of Serra de Tramuntana on the north-west coast of the island. It belongs to the municipality of the adjacent small town of Sóller. The centre of Palma is 25 kilometres away and situated to the north. In addition to the centre "es Port", the municipality also includes the settlements "sa Muleta" in the west and "sa Talaia" and "Bellavista" in the north. The port at Badia de Sóller forms the centre of the municipality and is the only protected port on the north-west coast between Port de Pollenca and Port d'Andratx.
Travelers and Activities
Port de Sóller is popular for its beautiful beaches, such as the "Platja des Través" south of the harbour area. This falls flat into the sea and is therefore ideal for children. No less beautiful is the "Platja d'en Repic" located southwest. Kids can quickly recognise the protected zones, especially as buoys clearly separate the bathing and shipping areas. Thanks to the crystal clear water, the children also have a lot of fun splashing around and looking at fish.Best conditions for active holidaymakers
The privileged location of Port de Sóller, with its mountains on one side and the sea on the other, offers an extremely wide range of sports and leisure activities. While the Mediterranean invites you to go water skiing, sea kayaking, sailing, diving or simply swimming, adventure sports enthusiasts, cyclists and hikers get their money's worth in the mountains. And when you leave the valley, you can also get involved in a game of golf.
The buttons on the Mallorcan costume used to be interpreted as a sign of prosperity.
