Cova de Can Marca, Port de Sant Miguel

2.5
#17 of 27 in Nature in Balearic Islands
Geologic Formation Cave
Discover the beauty and mystery of the 100,000-year-old rock formations within Cova de Can Marca, a cave on the north end of Ibiza only widely known to the public since the 1970s. Explore the cave’s stalagmites and stalactites, and look for painted marks once used by smugglers to navigate the chambers. Join a 40-minute guided tour of the cavern, and marvel as it culminates in a light show involving a subterranean waterfall. Grab a drink at the cave’s cafe and relax in its terraced seating area with views of the hills and cliffs across the bay. Those with epilepsy should keep in mind that the light show at the end of the tour contains sudden bright flashing lights.

  • The views are breathtaking but the staff was horrible or should I say the gentleman who was locking up the facility was a nightmare. Mr. Meanie is what I will refer to him as for the duration of this ...  more »
  • We stayed at the nearby resort and walked (about 10 minutes) to the caves from one of the hotels. Nice little cafe there and was quite popular. There are wonderful views whilst we waited for our tour....  more »
  • Tours run every 30 minutes, our guide spoke mostly in Spanish and then at the end did a very basic summary in English. You basically walk through the caves and then at the end there is an artificial l...  more »

  • These caves are quite cool to see, however a few things caught us on the hop. You have to wait for a guided tour, you can't just wander about, but they do happen pretty frequently. There are lots of steps with no shade down the cliff to get to the entrance. If you're in a big group, this means you may end up queuing in the sun for a while, so bring your hat/sunglasses/sun cream. The guide was friendly and lots of fun, quite an achievement as she probably had to make the same jokes frequently throughout the day. The caves themselves are great, but a very short tour for the price (11 euro), and topped off with a nausea inducing totally unnecessarily strobe light show.
  • Really enjoyed this place. The caves have been put into a state so that tourists can visit, since the original state meant crawling. Love what they've done with it. And kiss enjoy it as well.
  • Excellent attraction, nice friendly staff and well placed scenic and shady cafe with affordable, well chilled beer! Like all this area it is a steep hike from the resort, and the caves are low with many steps, so unsuitable for anyone with mobility difficulties, or claustrophobia!!
  • The caves are nice to visit and interesting to learn about their history. Prices are quite high for the tour-time you'll get but the real disappointment were the artificial lights at the waterfall. They could turn the waterfall on and off so not real at all. Still we had a OK time at the caves with stunning views at the bay, nice rock formations and a pleasant surrounding. Tip: After the visit you can take the road further up the hill and continue on a great scenic road!
