Port de Sóller

Port de Sóller

North West Mallorca

Route: Port de Soller

Area: North West Mallorca

Date of walk: 10th September 2015

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 11.0 miles

Weather: Overcast and dull, light rain

I set off from our rented villa in Sóller but in trying to make a shortcut to the start of the walk came to a dead end in an industrial estate on the outskirts, resulting in some industrial language. Having wasted about 30 minutes I walked back to the Repsol garage on the MA-11 and was finally on my way

I climbed up the path and was soon looking back over the town. About half way to the Port de Soller there was a road section, but thankfully it was a fairly quiet road from which there were good sea views

The next section was superb, along a stony path through groves of ancient olive trees, with wonderful views of the port below. Having reached the port I walked round the seafront and joined the path we’d used on our first walk of this holiday, this time following it in the opposite direction back into Sóller

There had been spots of rain throughout most of the morning, but as I neared Sóller the rain became heavier and it was a wet end to the walk, which was a really enjoyable one despite the poor weather
