Simply wandering Sóller’s peaceful, often cobbled, streets is a pleasure. In any direction, within a few minutes you exchange tight, winding lanes bordered with smooth limestone pavements and lined with tall and grand wooden doors for country roads bordered by stone walls, behind which flourish amply irrigated orange and lemon groves.
For planning walks around and beyond the Sóller basin, pick up the Editorial Alpina Tramuntana Central map (1:25,000). For guided hikes, contact Tramuntana Tours.
The best way to amplify your experience of Sóller is to spend the night in town and plan forays to surrounding villages. There's an excellent choice of hostals, historic hotels and boutique hotels to choose from, but you'll need to book ahead during the busy summer months.
A large and much-visited town, Sóller has a fine choice of restaurants, cafes and bakeries to choose from, serving a tantalising choice of Mallorcan and Mediterranean food. For picturesque views, head to Béns d’Avall on the winding road to Deià.
Drinking & Nightlife
Sóller's Plaça de la Constitució, right at the heart of town, is strewn with cafes and bars. A drink here is the ideal way to people-watch and measure the town's comings and goings. To flee the tourist hordes, head to Sa Butigueta.
