Insider Guide To Port de Sóller With Danielle Windsor

Fashion designer Danielle Windsor spent much of her career based in Spain – at Zara HQ – before setting up her luxury label YAITTE in 2017, and Port de Sóller was her go-to Spanish destination.

With a wealth of experience, Danielle created YAITTE with a simple purpose: to create effortless and timeless styles that are suited for travel, for the modern woman. Her collection of signature shirts are versatile enough to be worn over a swimsuit or dressed up for dinner.

We speak to Danielle about why Port de Sóller is still her go-to destination in Spain, the best spots for sunset on the island, and where to head for a change of pace.

The best time to visit Port de Sóller?

In spring or late summer, after the crowds have dispersed.

Our first pitstop should be…

One of the many traditional cafés on the waterfront for a quick café con leche and pastry.

Your favourite hotel to check-in at is…

Jumeirah Port Sóller Hotel & Spa for its unbelievable views and distinctive design.

For an early morning workout head to…

I love nothing more than doing a leisurely 5K down towards the marina. The hike back up the clifftop to the Jumeirah Port Sóller Hotel is good for the soul.

Where should we go for breakfast? 

The hotel has an outside terrace, Cap Roig Brasserie, which has panoramic views of the idyllic Mediterranean.

How about for a long, lazy lunch? 

Patiki Beach. On the opposite side of the port, this is a farm-to-table restaurant on the beach. Their pink sangria is so refreshing.

Favourite restaurant for dinner with friends? 

Take a boat to Sa Foradada for their paella, the restaurant is located high on the cliffs and at the foot of the impressive mountains of the Serra de Tramuntana.

The drink to order at the bar…

Head back to Port De Sóller and enjoy a Gin Basil at George’s.

The best place for people watching…

The front terrace at Hotel Esplendido. It’s also a beautiful spot to watch the sunset.

The culture spot to rave about…

Take the old wooden train to Palma from the town of Sóller. The Art Deco station here has a gallery which exhibits original works by Picasso and Miro.

The best place to treat yourself is…

La Principal in Palma, a multi-brand store with a curated selection of luxury brands.

For the best views head to…

Cap Roig has spectacular views, as does the walk up to the Maritime Museum where the sea appears to have no end.

One place only locals know about…

Hop on the tram to Sóller and try Horno Santo Cristo for the best sweet treats – including their divine lemon meringue.

For a change of pace try…

A drive to the small coastal village of Deià, or hire a vespa from Bullimoto and take time to discover the beautiful island.

Souvenir to take home? 

Handmade pottery and local basketry are beautiful souvenirs, as well as practical. Take the tram to the weekly street market in the town of Sóller to pick some up.

A must-try spot for date night? 

Hire a sailboat and have a private dining experience for two.

Great day trips include…

Deià for its unmatched charm; it has recently seen a small influx of creatives moving there.

How should we spend the final day of our trip? 

Soaking up the rays while watching the yachts come in and out of the port. Book Patiki for a late lunch, and then settle at Hotel Esplendido to people-watch and have a nightcap.

In one word, Port de Sóller is…


Essential items to pack?

YAITTE’s Puglia white shirt and Janeiro trousers paired with The City sandal from Essen The Label is a great outfit for exploring the town, and our HAMPTON knit will keep you warm on the flight. I can’t travel without ODACITÉ SPF 50 mineral drops and a pair of Feroce sunglasses.
