Puerto de Soller (Mallorca) - General Info

Select your download option below


Description:

Puerto de Soller is the only protected anchorage along the exposed northwestern coast of Mallorca. Sailing along this coast in the right conditions is very worthwhile as the views of the mountains are exceptional.

The anchorage and the marina offer good protection inside a spectacular horseshoe-shaped bay, with pine trees up the hillsides. The bay is easy to enter in most weather conditions.

It can get very crowded in the summer months (August is probably best avoided) and the SW end of the bay is open to the NW.

Soller is a pleasant tourist port with beaches, shops and restaurants. The town of Soller is linked to the port by a vintage tramway and there still runs a Victorian train line from Soller to Palma, a worthwhile excursion if you have time.

Position:

39° 48′ N, 002° 41′ E (entrance to the bay)

    Reported by Phil and Jane Smith:
    We went here and asked about berths in August at the town pontoons. We were told no multihull berths at all in August. That said, we anchored in the bay in poor weather with no problems.

    We stayed for 2 nights on the floating pontoon of the Port IB dock, Oct 1st and 2nd, 2017. We did not make an advance reservation and there were plenty of spaces, at least until about 6 pm, then it filled up. There are water and power, it is included in the mooring fee, which for our 14-meter monohull was 27.50 per night including VAT.

    Marina Tramontana quoted 60 euro, plus water and power. The port authorities told us the power and water would be cut off on Oct. 3rd, and the pontoon removed on the 4th, they told us normal procedure happens every year in early Oct.
    Once they take out the pontoon, the only option is anchoring or the marina.

    Just come back from 5 weeks sailing around Mallorca and spent a week at Soller. Agreed the anchorage was busy and good spots difficult to find, but don’t let that put you off. Avoid August. I have a 14m sailing boat and after a bit of a nose around found a nice little spot.

    For those who want to tie up (to a dock) the local port authority operate their own berths at very reasonable prices. You need to register in advance which requires completion of a form and supporting docs (i.e. registration certificate, insurance etc.). Once done they process your application fairly quickly (a couple of days) and you can then book berths and pay online. You can stay a maximum of 5 days. Max size 15m.

    Also, they run a new DIVING CENTER with friendly staff into the best coast of Mallorca.
    During the night there is a nice bar called LA BASE with nice jazzy music and cocktails.

    Posted on behalf of 786Global

    Visited “Marinas Tramuntana” October 2013 / 1942 classic with 3m of the draft:

    Found all of the above to be true! …except for anchoring in the bay only possible at the SW end of the bay which really is unsuitable most of the time (if no wind, there almost always is swell standing into the bay), Mooring buoys are available from the marina – supply is limited.

    Very friendly and courteous reception, even so, the marina still is under construction and facilities thus are basic (showers & restrooms in containers). Water and Electricity available, no marina-restaurant but lots of great little bars and restaurants along the shoreline.

    Inner harbour terribly crowded and entrance gets shallow fast. The sand-beach is artificial and thus the waves and currents tend to shift the sand constantly towards the entrance of inner harbour – so be extra caution!
    Usually “Stern to” – but during our visit, it was no problem to go alongside.
    20-ton crane – but in the most shallow part of the marina, for most of us, not an option.

    Laundry service, very small chandlery, equally small supermarket within easy walking distance in town.

    Lots of fishing boats (and unusual heavy small craft traffic in this port) make for a lot of very good “flying mechanics” – just ask the fishermen for a recommendation/phone number.

    Don’t miss the Victorian tram! 🙂

    Ferry boats to the impressive “Torrens de Pareys” – use it & leave your own boat in the safety of Porto de Soller!
