Default The LLuc Soller Drive

Just wanted to share my experience for anyone thinking of this,this was my first time driving abroad so I was a little nervous.

Lluc needless to say was worth the visit but apart from one spectacular scenery point on the way I dont think the drive from LLuc to Soller was worth the hassle.When I say hassle I mean this drive took a lot out of me in concentration etc and I was very tired by the time I reached Deia.Now the scenery from Soller into Deia,Valdemossa and down to Palma was fantastic but next time I would think going into Palma and out to Valdemossa,Deia would be a less challenging route and you get 90% of the scenery to boot.

I should add I was driving on my own which may be one cause of frustration as you can't drive those roads and take
a glimpse at the view at the same time,I also thought they could have done with more viewing points,rest stops on the way.Maybe I would have enjoyed it more as a passenger!

Hi

We are just back and we did the drive you mention

from PP to Lluc is lovelly , lluc is well worth avisit and I have to say I also really enjoyed the drive from Lluc to Soller ..... I think the driver did too, he isn't here to ask at the moment but he didn't complain


We all loved it ....... stopped off at the reservoir for a while as well

Obviously, we didn;t go home that way , we went home via the tunnel as it takes about a third of the time

When you drive from Soller to Palma you can go over the mountain ( 30plus hairpoins - not for the feint hearted but an experience .... I have done it but probably won't ever bother again since the tunnel was built. ) and the other way is through the tunnel .... you can;t miss it .... you drive out of Soller , taking the road signposted to Palma and it's right there in front of you .... costs about 5 euros

To get back to PP you carry on along thatroad untill you see a sign for Santa Maria .... you go through Santa Maria .... we usually stop and have a drink in one of the little cafes ... then carry on and you are on the Palma - Inca motorway and the rest you will know
