renting a car and where to go?

Hi all,

We are coming to Palma on a cruise June 8. We would like to rent a car and take a scenic drive. Where should we go? To Soller? Or another direction? Do we have time to go to Soller and some where else pretty? We will be there from 7 am to 7 pm but of course we don't want to drive that long. lol Any advice is appreciated. Thanks, Rebecca

Have you thought about taking the old Victorian train to Soller from Palma it would be much more relaxing.

Here a link www.sollernet.com/trendesoller/en1.html

The north west coast is very scenic you could head for estellencs a lovely mountain village where you could park your car and stop for a coffee in the lovely garden terrace of cafe vell hermes,then have a short wander round the cobbled streets,then off to banylabafaur again lovely scenic route from estellencs,,then carry onto deai lovely village to have a mooch, head down to the cove for a fantastic fish lunch overlooking the sea then onto soller and back to palma it may sound a bit of a journey but it is really worth doing and can be done in you time limit hope this helps.

Your welcome,if you do decide to go down to the cove for lunch at deai,take the road out of deai heading towards soller not to far past the la ressidence hotel on the left around some sharp bends is the turning down to it,it can be easily missed if your not aware of it,you will decend down a winding road go right down to the end and park your car the restaurant is set upon the rocks on the left the food is lovely and its very scenic hope this helps.
