Two beautiful ports on the west coast of Majorca - Port Andratx and Port Soller. Port Andratx is well recommended, I would say mostly for couples and those seeking a quieter holiday. This port is a natural harbour but does not have a beach - is full of very swish yachts of every size - an interesting sight especially for the boat lover. It offers lots of upmarket restaurants, tasty fish on offer, and bars down by the harbourside and is a wonderful spot to watch the sun go down sipping your favourite cocktail and relax. There are also many other restaurants in the streets behind and the choice is superb - any kind of food you wish for. Lovely boutique shops and ice cream bars open till late - the locals have a habit of eating ices late at night as they stroll along - so why not join in and become a local ! There appear to be more apartments than hotels - not many hotels really so it's still relatively unspoilt and retains a characterful ambience. Our hotel was a pleasant 15 min. stroll from the harbour so plenty of eyeing up the boats along our way ! Bus stop in town which takes you to the town of Andratx with its weekly market and square where locals sip their drinks. Also the bus takes you to neighbouring places for a change of scenery. The nightlife is low key so don't go here if you like Magaluf and Palma Nova ! Port Andratx is ideally suitable for couples. There are also small boats which operate like taxis from nearby places, so again easy to get around without a car. A lovely place for a relaxing holiday, yet not remote at all - do visit !! Port Soller is my favourite port - backed by many mountains - again a beautiful harbour full of boats of all sizes - some very swish ones too, and this port has a reasonably sized beach !! The locals play football games here and bring their children after school for swimming and games on the beach. It's a large horseshoe shaped bay with many many excellent restaurants,some very upmarket, plenty bars and cafes to choose from. Also, a lot of hotels line the bay - a lovely walk especially in the evening and good people watching spots. The unique attraction here is the wooden tram which regularly goes along the front and off to the town of Soller which is most definitely worth a visit ( or two ) ! Gorgeous square with restaurants, bars and cafes and a lovely church, the town hall and a sizeable street market. Wander from the square through the narrow streets full of little shops - most interesting town. From here you can also catch the wooden train which takes you through the mountains to the capital of Palma - a very pleasant ride, and you can catch the bus back direct to Port Soller which is obviously much quicker. There's also a local bus service which visits nearby villages. We stayed at Es Port hotel which is just 5 mins back from the front, set high up, so peaceful and quiet yet so near to the port itself - perfect location. It was an old olive mill - is set in acres of grounds with the giant 100 year old olive trees and is a stunning setting. The old buildings have been restored sympathetically and they have retained many of the original features - courtyards, olive press, low ceilinged lounges and much more, such an unusual hotel and a pleasant change after the usual square blocks !! A wonderful hotel, beautiful bay - I will certainly return here !!

    We love tapas and experienced a wonderful meal here - everything was delicious - polite and friendly service. Reasonably priced. Good spot for people watching. We never returned only because there were too many restaurants to choose from !

    This looked very inviting as we walked by so decided to try it one evening. We were not disappointed - friendly service, the owner explained the specials and about the fish ( which I ordered ) love to try new dishes, again delicious and beautifully cooked and well presented. This restaurant is an experience and recommended if you are a foodie ! We had a wonderful evening but must say that it is an expensive restaurant ( cost us 100 euros ) Top class place which makes you feel you've enjoyed a special evening !

    Superb hotel, not like the norm - backed by the mountains and set in beautiful grounds, very spacious, huge old olive trees, different levels, lots of little nooks and crannies to sit in, shady spots - wonderful, peaceful and quiet, yet so near to the port ( 100m. ) It's full of character, has retained many of its original features - courtyards, old olive press, lots little low ceiling lounges, several buildings scattered around which are also used as bedrooms, which we happened to stay in - unusual artifacts, and I could go on !! Friendly staff, wonderful breakfast - you even squeeze your own orange juice at breakfast which are from their own trees ( lemon trees as well ) . Although it is not listed as an adults only hotel, you can almost say it is - perfect for couples, young and old. Excellent food - this place is amazing - I can't wait to go back ( and that's something I rarely do ! ) A definite recommend - you won't be disappointed.

    This wooden tram which goes along the promenade from Port Soller to the town of Soller is a must !! Regular trams throughout the day - it's a lovely ride and when you go through the small main square when you arrive at Soller you can almost touch some of the buildings ! You can see where the locals houses are and their gardens full of orange trees - it's an interesting ride. This tram stops where the main wooden train goes to Palma, so very convenient if you wish to do this trip ( recommended ).

    Easy to get to via bus from Port Andratx, where we were staying. Lovely little place - beach and a restaurant situated in the sea where you walk over a bridge to get there ( no paddling ) !! A couple of hotels line the bay, several bars and restaurants, small bay, not overcrowded. Street from the bay with many local shops and bars leads up the hill to where the fishing boats come in - watch the fishermen tending their nets. You can also catch a boat here which takes you back to Port Andratx - a very pleasant, but short sail - recommended. Nice spot for a day out.

    This is our favourite bar in Palma - we have been here every time we visit Palma for the day. They serve good sangria and the tapas are also highly recommended. It's on a busy main road, but really good for people watching and everything that's going on. Near bus stops, all the shops, the theatre so very central.
