“Driving Heaven”

Reviewed December 12, 2012

This is the most spectacular part of the island and makes for a great drive, in either direction. The views are fantastic and there are some delightful villages en route such as Banyulbufar, Estellencs and Deia.

The stunning scenery took my breath away, Many towering peaks and sheltered bays. Caters for tourists very efficiently. People very friendly. Do not miss a chance to explore this area.

Majorca is more than sea and sand.
Fabulous mountain roads, pretty villages, stunning views and breathtaking scenery. I could have toured all my holiday. Will most likely return next year and stay in this area for the duration.

We drove to the northwest coast using a rental car and also went to Soller and Port de Soller by Train and then returned to Palma by bus. The two approaches gave somewhat different views of the coast but overall it was quite beautiful!

Ordinarily we prefer the flexibility of a car to come and go and stop for pictures and sights as we please. However there are real advantage to taking the train and bus -- fewer chances for pictures but more chances to enjoy the view while driving...

There are many picturesque towns along the way -- see the specific descriptions for details.

If you do take the bus from Port de Soller it's not easy to find the stop. Go to the end of the railroad line then walk back in the same direction that the train came until you get to the first major street going away from the water. (If you're facing away from the water, there will be a restaurant and ice cream stand on your right. Walk away from the water along this cross street about 2 blocks to a traffic circle. The bus stop will be on the circle on the left hand side.

The bus itself was pleasant, air conditioned and comfortable and ended in the main station in Palma at the Placa de Espanol. From there it was easy to navigate back to our hotel.

Wonderful mountains and spectacular scenery. It's worth going to Soller and do have a ride on the trams and electric train through the lemon and orange groves. Magic !!
