If you hire a car from Palma airport PMI for your trip to Soller or Soller Port you will find it fairly easy to get to your destination.
First, exit the airport and get onto the main highway following the signs for Palma. You will then be joining the Autovia Ma-19. If your car hire was from one of the car hire sites on the East-side the airport, then you will simply join the main highway one junction further away.
Continue on the Ma-19 for approximately 4.3km72.6miles, about 3 minutes. At junction 3 take the road Ma-20 signposted Alcudia.
Stay on the Ma-20 for around 4km/2.5miles and take exit 5A towards Sóller/Centre and join the Ma-11.
Continue on the Ma-11 straight over a number of roundabouts for approximately 14km/9miles. Stay on the Ma-11 and drive through the Soller tunnel, as this will save you about 30 minutes of drive time. Until recently this was a toll road, however, since the end of 2017 use of the tunnel is free of charge. Stay on the Ma-11 for approximately 6km/4miles more and at the roundabout exit following the signpost for the Centre.
If you are heading for the port centre simply stay on the Ma-11 and following the signs for PT Soller. After around 4km/2.5miles at the roundabout take the third exit for Port and Centre, you will practically be there.
However, if you are heading to the south of the bay leave the Ma-11 earlier after around 2.5km/1.5miles following the signpost for Port de Soller/en Repic taking the Ma-2124, this will lead you alongside the tram track to the bay.
