Soller – Mirador de ses Barques – Fornalutx – Soller
I recommend starting and ending at the square in Soller. The distance is then about 9 km and takes about 3 hours to walk. The terrain is steep and hilly with the Mirador de ses Barques as the highest point of 400 meters above sea level.
From the square in Soller you will find the GR221 marking by following Carrer de se Lluna (the shopping street) from the bottom left corner when you look at the church.
The path is well signposted.
Initially you´ll follow the signs towards Tuent and then on to Fornalutx.
Before continuing down to Fornalutx at the sign "Fornalutx 55 min" to the right and "Balitx / Tuent 4 h" you are only 5 minutes below Mirador. You definitely should not miss a detour here.
Mirador de ses Barques is one of the most visited rest area along Ma-10 on Mallorca's west coast. The view of the coast here is magnificent.
For many hikers this is the starting point for one of the most popular hiking tours in Mallorca: the coastal path to Cala Tuent and Sa Calobra.
Back on the trail down to Fornalutx and Soller, just follow the signs.
