Alternative Return/Return by Foot


One starts at the first tram stop upon arriving at Puerto de Soller. On getting off the tram when facing the sea one should take a left and after around 75 steps one crosses a bridge over the Major stream. One goes along the promenade of the D`En Repic beach until taking the Camp de Sa Mar path in other words, upon crossing the bridge the second street on the left and then one goes straight ahead. After going round a bend one maintains the route until finding the ruined hotel Rocamar where one goes right.

After going past the unfortunate hotel one go straight on until reaching a fork in the road. In the shade of a carob tree the bridle path starts follow the path that takes you to Muleta. On the right and via some olive groves one leaves behind the houses of Muleta de Ca S`Hereu. Shortly after passing a stream one arrives at the houses of Muleta Gran where one can behold its magnificent defense tower. Near this tower one will pass by a wall and continue northwards. One will then come to a fork. On the left it will take you to Coll de Can Bleda and to the Castello Parh, so one will take the other direction taking us to the Cap Gros Lighthouse.

After a while one will enter an olive grove until reaching a narrow pass which will take you into the garrriga. The latter stretch is a bit complicated to follow owing to the earth movements there have been recently. Having gone through the narrow pass one can start to enjoy some amazing views over the coast and the lighthouse itself which tells us the direction to take though one have to pay attention as the path alternates cobbled stretches with others which are ill defined.

After around twenty minutes going down one reach the car park of the Muletas shelter built on the former Telecommunications station of Muleta from 1912. The vantage point from this shelter provides you with a close-up of the nearby Cap Gros lighthouse and, further down of Puerto de Soller. 

From here one goes down via the lighthouse road which takes you back to the port enjoying the amazing views of the coast of this last stretch of the route.
