Cova de Can Marca, Port de Sant Miguel
(2.4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
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 place impresses because it is interesting to know what had made centuries ago in the peninsula and that the smugglers used the place to store your belongings, but... the place is very manipulated despite little rain have to use a reserve of fresh water for the effects that do not have any merit because you see the person as he leads the command of lights. Finally... view a, view all.

  • The caves are a 10 minute walk from Hotel Club Cartago, loads of steps but we walked through this with two young kids and flip flops on. Plenty to see, reasonably priced. It's fairly short, it's not a...  more »

  • We went with a group of friends. An uninteresting limestone cave. It's too lit and there are artificially pumped streams running through it, not much to see; there is a (fake) waterfall with music and lighting (sic) that I'd manually operated by the tour guide. It's supposed to be artistic but it's ridiculous. Of course at over 10€ the price is high. Wouldn't recommend.
  • Worth visiting if it rains. Guides are friendly and give you precise answers to your questions. They made some changes so people can actual walk through the cave. They tried their best to make it a good attraction but the lightshow with the artifical waterfall is more like a disco with strobe light. More interesting for children than for cupples or elder.
  • 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!
  • Lots of steps!!!. Interesting caves nice lighting and music display not quite to my taste but unusual and good.
  • Lovely caves and entertaining tour. The guides are doing a good effort to keep it interesting, informative and fun. There are some beautiful vistas on the way to the caves. I rate it 4 stars because I find the prices to high.
