Geologic Formation
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.

  • We had been attracted by a photo in our guide. A natural place to a cave and the colors were friendly, highlighted by lights. Short it's not worth it at all. It is the amusement park missed, everything is hyper developed, a waterfall commissioning by the guide at the time where we're going with a pump which brings water, and one his hyper kitsch light. The highlight of the visit, the famous photo of the guide, what a disappointment it's bland, dull, ugly. Anyway we're going to make you want to go, but it won't be anything like what you are shown a picture. 10.5 euros is super expensive for the lack of quality of this place. Park tourist to the end we'll try in addition to you sell two pictures for the modest sum of 14 euros. Go your way, go to the beach.

  • The Grotto is probably the driest stalactite cave that I know and the only one that artificially "irrigation". The guided tour lasts approximately 30 minutes and is conducted in multiple languages. The leadership, which we made with was unfortunately quite big and in Spanish, French and English. Therefore, unfortunately, too little time was used on the British group. The Grotto is ok but worth seeing and priced with €10,50 per person.

  • It is a nice, not very big nor particularly interesting cave, but since we're in Ibiza, we will not fail to see it. The landscape from the bar where you buy the ticket to the spectacular entrance

  • 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.
