About Playa d’en Repic
Port de Sóller is a perfect horseshoe shaped bay surrounded by the spectacular Tramuntana mountains, in the northwest of Mallorca. If you are facing the sea, Playa d’en Repic is the stretch of beach on the far left side, about 250 metres long, with a mix of sand and small pebbles. There is a boardwalk along this beach that connects all the way down the length of Port de Sóller beach to the marina, and where you’ll see the old tram running from the village of Sóller just a few kilometres away.
From June-September there are small areas with sunbeds and parasols for hire but there remain areas just for towels as well. The water is generally calm and quite clean but in the peak summer months with all the boats anchored nearby it can loose some of its clarity and there have been jellyfish sitings in July and August when the water is warmest. As the beach curves around to the left it gets a bit rockier on the sand and in the water before the restaurants end and it turns into cliffs.
There are restaurants, hotels and small shops along Playa d’en Repic, creating a lively summer ambiance. It is an easy, family-friendly beach with many Scandinavians, English and Germans, as well as Russians, as well as younger and older tourists, and often hikers and cyclists who love to base their stay around here in the cooler months.

Safety and Access
Playa d’en Repic is well marked from the Carretera de Sóller, the main road that connects the two villages of Port de Sóller and Sóller. There are two areas for paid parking depending on which side of the beach you want to go to. The first is a large paid parking lot that connects to the small parc Sa Torre, or take the signs towards La Muleta and Repic along a small 1-kilometre long road that will lead you to the other side of Repic, where there is another paid parking area. There is a public bus and the tram from Sóller that stops right at the boardwalk of Port de Sóller, where Repic technically begins. Playa d’en Repic is a easily accessed by wheelchairs as there is a paved walkway from the parking to the boardwalk. For disabled and older people, there are benches along the boardwalk that are right in front of the beach.
Boats can be anchored here and there is a marina about 1-kilometre walk down the boardwalk.
There is a lifeguard on duty during the peak summer months. There is an urgent care in the center of Port Soller about a 10-minute walk from Playa d’en Repic.
Things to do on Playa d’en Repic
There are a few water sports along Playa d’en Repic such as paddle boats, and just a short walk away along the beach, in front of the Esplendido Hotel is a SUP shop, which also offers yoga on the beach classes. Snorkeling and swimming are popular here, as are boat trips. From the Port de Sóller marina, about a 10-minute walk away, you can book ferry boat trips to Sa Calobra and Cala Tuent up the coast, and you can rent your own small boat for the day as well.
A good 30-minute walk from Repic, along a paved road or a 5-10 minute drive, brings you up to the top of a cliff overlooking the sea to the La Muleta lighthouse. You cannot access the lighthouse but the views are beautiful and there are a few great hikes that begin here as well.
Restaurants on Playa d’en Repic
Increasingly Port de Sóller is becoming known for having restaurants that serve creative and fresh food and you won’t have to look too far to find a great meal. Whether you want traditional Mallorcan cuisine and tapas, grilled fish, burgers or salads, there are several restaurants right on the boardwalk of Playa d’en Repic that will satisfy. Some are higher end establishments like Es Passeig and Agapanto, while others are more beach casual, such as the recently opened Don Pedro, but either way, shoes and shirts are almost always required. At the furtherest point south on Repic, along the part of the beach that veers off into the cliffs, are a couple of very casual beach bars where you can sit in chairs right on the beach while your kids play in the sand below.
Many of the restaurants have large terraces that offer space to relax and enjoy a long meal or an aperitif later in the day. There is cafe that caters to hikers and cyclists with healthy snacks such as granola and power bars as well as making fresh sandwiches to stay or to go. There is an Indian restaurant if you are in the mood for something more international and there is at least one ice cream shop here and a couple of small convenience stores for drinks and snacks. If you walk further on the boardwalk into the port towards the marina, restaurants are plentiful and welcoming such as the popular Randemar with its large covered terrace and Sa Barca, which offers innovative twists on classic Mallorcan dishes.

Nearby Playa d’en Repic
First and foremost would be a visit to the other end of the port, where there are some other nice, small beaches and lots of great shops, restaurants, cafe’s, and ice-cream. It’s a vibrant community, both tourist based but also local with lots of authentic charm. From the marina you can book day trips on a boat to visit harder to reach beaches such as Sa Calobra and Cala Tuent, or book a boat to take you towards the well-known Cala Deià.
For a day away from the beach, a visit to neighbouring Sóller is a must. Go by car, bus or take the tram that runs along the boardwalk all the way into the central plaza of Sóller which is a fun experience, especially for kids. Wander the small little streets of Sóller, particularly the C/ de la Lluna, the pedestrian walking street with its many cafe’s and shops and the modern art museum, Can Prunera.
This is a great base from which to explore the majestic, Serra de Tramuntana mountains. Trails are well marked and meander throughout this area. Small villages like Fornalutx and Biniariax are worth a visit for their architecture, history and beauty.
