The lovely marina of the Port of Soller in Majorca.
Port de Sóller is a village and the port of the town of Sóller, in Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands, Spain. Along with the village of Fornalutx and the hamlet of Biniaraix they combine to form Sóller. The combined population is around 12,000. A tramway links the inland town of Sóller to Port de Sóller, running along the beach-side road.
The resort consists of shops, restaurants and bars but is quiet and away from the major tourist areas.
Two lighthouses sit on the headlands on either side of the bay, La Badia de Sóller. Development on the east headland has been prevented by the area being used as a training ground by the Spanish Army. The beach was recovered in sand for the summer of 2009 because, whilst clean, it had become rather muddy and inhospitable. The bay and the estuary of the river which comes to an end here attract little egrets, Muscovy ducks, huge flocks of herring gulls, Greylag geese and Mallard ducks. The diversity of breeds in the duck and geese population suggests that most of the original birds had escaped from captivity.
