    daytrips to the west / north

    There are some nice and easy day trips you can do from Palma.

    The most popular one is to take the old train to Soller, the slow ride up to mountain is an attraction anyway. From Soller (there’s an interesting church, lot of oranges and some nice museums) take also the old tram down to port de Soller where you can enjoy the beach, walk along the promenade or just have lunch at one of the numerous café/restaurants that face the harbor. From there you can take a boat to the famous beach Sa Colobra.

    Other nice and interesting villages in that area include Valldemossa (with an interesting old monastery), the picturesque Deya, or the small villages of Fornalutx and Biniaraix that are closer to Soller.

    We drove to all those villages but there is also bus #210 that goes from Palma to Valldemosa, then to Deya and ends at Port de Soller through Soller.

    bus #211 goes directly to Soller. You can also check for some organized tour, costs a bit more of course but it’s more convenient without stress about the timetables…

    When I went by the traditional train from Palma to Soller, we stopped in great viewing points and we could appreciate some amazing landscapes.
    The old village of Valldemossa was one of those amazing views.
    Take a look at the photo. Beautiful, isn't it?

    I could say Ikea! but I'd say most people should look at the suburbs, they're a complete culure shock and very different to the city centre.

    It gives the whole picture of Palma, the good and the bad and makes your opinion more objective.
