Puerto Soller is a genuine fishing village at the Marina end of the Port. ‘Santa Catalina’ is its name, and it has the most quintessential route of higgledy piggledy uphill streets and small houses. Once the homes of fishermen and women, port workers and now mix of local residents and second homeowners.
Puerto Soller is a sea faring community, and this can be seen most days as locals wait at the quayside for the fish straight off the boat for their tea. The sea, the boats, the fish are all here, all day every day. This is serious commercial fishing alongside the pleasure fishers who go out for the day.
The catch comes in around 5 pm each day and a small proportion is sold from the shop on the quay.
