Hiking: Soller is an excellent location from which to hike. It is not necessary to hire a car as the bus service is very reliable. For organized hiking: www.outdoormallorca.com and www.tramuntanatours.comHave a look at: Walking routes in Mallorca

Puerto de Sóller is a village and the port of the town of Sóller. Puerto de Soller offers the only sandy beaches on the west coast of Majorca. This lovely little resort offers two beaches along it’s horseshoe bay, all with golden sands and clear blue seas. The resort is quiet and away from the major tourist areas.

Train/tram: If you want to visit Palma while staying in Soller as an alternative way to get there, use the old train which has been running since 1912, and the route was electrified in 1929. The Vintage Tram from Soller to Puerto de Sóller run from the Train Station in Soller down to the port every 30 minutes or so. Timed to coincide with the Lemon Express from Palma, extra trams run if they are needed. www.trendesoller.com

Street Market: Every Saturday morning at Plaça del Mercat, Mercadillo de Sóller

Cementery: Now a trip to cemetery may not sound like a fun day out, but Soller’s cemetery is an Art Nouveau wonderland of spectacular tombs, robust mausoleums and winged angels, all set in a beautifully landscaped garden and with sweeping views over the Soller valley and beyond to the sea.

Fornalutx in the hills above Soller, calls itself the prettiest village in Spain and it is hard to disagree, unless you accept the claims of its neighbour Biniaraix. It is a quiet little place at the top of the Soller valley and has wonderful mountain views. A number of walking trails are easily accessible from Fornalutx, making it a top spot for hikers and bikers.

Deia: An idyllic village of green-shuttered, ochre-coloured houses in the shadow of the Teix mountain on the west coast, a two hours easy and very beautiful walk from Sóller. Cala Deia is a lovely little cove for lunch and a swim.
