The Charming, Nostalgic Tram

The old tram, from as far back as1913, chugs among fruit and vegetable gardens for about 30 minutes from Sóller to Port de Sóller. In the meantime, it traverses 13 tunnels. It is the only tram system in Mallorca. In the past, the tram network has been used mainly for the transportation of citrus fruits and vegetables. Today it is especially fun for tourists, and an attraction that should not be missed.

Harbour of Port de Sóller

The harbor still forms the center of Port de Sóller and is one of the main attractions. Among the approximately 500 berths, you can find every imaginable type of boat: fishing boats, luxury yachts and pleasure boats. Both sailing boats and motorboats can be hired for tours here. Port de Sóller is the starting point for tour boats along the northwestern coast of Mallorca, among other destinations, to the beautiful beaches of Sa Calobra and Deià. The boat trips along the coast are highly recommended, as they offer stunning views of the Tramuntana mountains. After a boat trip you can enjoy the unique view of the bay and the harbor of Port de Sóller with a dinner based on fresh fish and seafood on the waterfront.

The Towers of Port de Sóller

The Torre Picada, dating from 1622, is a fortified tower northeast of the harbor of Port de Sóller, and was built to defend against pirate attacks. Today it is privately owned. At the north eastern entrance to the port you can see the remains of the lighthouse Far de Bufador, build in 1864. In 1930, it was replaced by another lighthouse, Far de sa Creu, which stands slightly higher. Far de Cap Gros, from 1859, is the lighthouse on the western side of the harbor entrance, serving as the counterpart to Far de sa Creu.

The Beaches

Along the north western coast of Mallorca you’ll find several noteworthy beaches close to Port de Sóller, Platja des Través and Platja den Repic being the most important. Través is the longest beach, covering about 600 meters. It’s located just south of the marina of Port de Sóller, but the sand is quite coarse. Platja den Repic is about 350 meters long and the prettier of the two beaches. Both beaches are only about 15-20 m wide, but the water is calm and shallow. Sun beds and canoes can be rented in both places.
