Soller is a town which lies in the Northern coast of the island of Mallorca. The town of Soller is about 3 km inland from its famous port, Puerto de Soller, and looks like a large, bowl-shaped valley that includes the village of Fornalutx and also the hamlets of Biniaraix and Binibassi.
Soller is beautifully set in the hills, amid orange groves and numerous olive trees and the town’s main square, the Plaza Contitucion is dotted with many lovely little cafes.
Soller is also a well-known yacht charter destination on the North of the island and hosts the world-famous marina, Puerto de Soller which can accommodate over 450 yachts measuring up to 15 m long. There is also the Marina Tramontana which lies within the port area which offers 465 berths for yachts having a maximum length of 30m.
The port area of Soller occupies a perfect location and fortunately due to the rocky nature of its coastline, it has not been possible to build too many buildings around and as a result it has escaped to the excesses of mass tourism.
Both marinas are within easy distance to several good marinas around like Real Club Nautic de Pollensa, Marina Alcudiamar in Alcudia and Club de Vela Puerto de Andratx.
