    Very nice natural fluorescent swimming-pools on rocks
    Cova de Can Marçà is a natural cave located in the surroundings of Port de Sant Miquel, a resort coast town in Ibiza Island. It is a small cave, where you can see stalactites and stalagmites. Ok, it is a normal cave. But, it has two points of interest: you can see some natural swimming-pools on rocks and one of them is fluorescent, and also you can see a very nice show in an artificial waterfall. Really, you can see it without lights and I recommend you take photos of them: the fluorescence is fantastic.

    Hidden underworld of natural wonders and ancient mysteries
    Hold onto your explorer's hat, because my journey into the depths of Cova de Can Marçà in Ibiza was like stepping into a hidden underworld of natural wonders and ancient mysteries! 🌄🌿 As I approached the entrance to the cave, it felt like I was about to enter a portal to a different era. The sunlit Mediterranean landscape gave way to the cool, shadowy embrace of the cave's mouth, and I could practically hear the whispers of the centuries echoing in the rock formations. Guided by the knowledgeable staff, I ventured further into the cave's intricate network of chambers and passages. The stalactites hung like forgotten chandeliers, each one a testament to the slow and patient work of Mother Nature herself. It was like walking through a subterranean art gallery curated by time itself. The highlight of the tour was the stunning light and sound show. As if by magic, the cave was transformed into a canvas of colors, with the rock formations coming to life as they danced to the rhythm of the music. It was like watching a symphony of stone and light, an otherworldly spectacle that made me feel like I was in the heart of a fairy tale. Learning about the cave's history was like turning the pages of a historical novel. I could practically hear the whispers of smugglers who once used the cave's hidden passages to transport their illicit goods. It's like the cave itself had been a silent witness to countless stories of adventure and intrigue. The underground lake was a reflection of pure serenity. Its still waters held secrets and legends that only the depths could unravel. I half-expected a mythical creature to emerge from the water, regaling us with tales of ancient times. As I emerged back into the sunlight, I felt a sense of awe and wonder that only comes from exploring the hidden treasures of our world. Cova de Can Marçà had opened a window into the Earth's history, reminding me of the power of nature's artistry and the stories that are etched into the very rocks beneath our feet. So, if you ever find yourself in Ibiza and want to journey into the heart of a cave that's as mysterious as it is beautiful, don't miss out on Cova de Can Marçà. Just be sure to bring your sense of wonder and your spirit of adventure – you're in for an underground experience that's as unforgettable as it is enlightening! 🌍🕊️

    Pricey but worth it
    It was quite pricey- 13eur/person. But the views were very beautiful and the guided tour was interesting and breathtaking. It was quite crowded. Suits best for kids and elderly, but if you as a young person are interested in history and geography, this might be just the place for you.

We had heard these caves mentioned on a few blogs and by friends who'd been to Ibiza. They are a bit off the beaten path - even our taxi driver had to Google the location since he wasn't familiar. They are a short drive away from the famous Benirrás bay and beach. Easy to reach by taxi and even easier if you are renting a car. There is ample parking and a snack bar and gift shop - limited offerings but a nice place to spend time before or after your cave tour. The view is marvelous and (of course) they have an espresso machine!

The tour itself is informative and is offered in multiple languages. Tours are always running during opening hours, no need to reserve tickets ahead of time. Have your camera handy for the walk to the cave entrance - you'll walk along a cliffside staircase with an utterly stunning view that on its own is worth the price of admission! The tour has information about the island's history (including pirates) and geology. You'll view different natural formations in the cave as well as human-enhanced features such as glow-in-the-dark pools and a strobe/colored light show with music. It was a little quirky but overall a nice homage to the island's party/nightclub culture.

Entrance is via a clifftop cafe/gift shop a few minutes' drive out of Port Sant Miquel. There are more than 100 steps (not steep) with a good surface and new fence, but I was distracted from the effort by the fabulous view across the boat-filled bay to cliffs and islands. Our cave tour lasted about 35 minutes, and featured some beautiful caverns, accessible via a well-lit pathway and more steps. The 5-minute son-et-lumiere show with a man-made waterfall (recycled water, we were assured) was fun, too.

We almost did not go due to the other reviews - one especially regarding lacklustre tour guide and poor light display. Disregard these and still go.

The caves are down a steep hill (with steps) which give beautiful views over the coastline and nearby port Sant Miquel. The caves themselves were considerably larger than we thought and well cut into for good paths and lit effectively.

The guide was knowledgable on how they were formed and utilised by smugglers. HE (the guide) explained why there has been no natural water for many years hence the requirement to put artificial water in to demonstrate how it would have been naturally and for preservation. The light show and waterfall are fully controlled by the guide however were much enjoyed by the children in the group. And the glow in the dark pools (all be it made from fluoride) were effective and made a good photo!

Go with a good attitude, don’t let the reviews put you off, we enjoyed it!

Lovely cave with tales of smugglers. Our guide, Sara, conducted the tour in English and Spanish and was able to answer all our questions. The tour had a good pace and entertaining for both adults and kids.

Great surroundings and views but the cave and the tour is a tourist trap and too fake. The water in the water pools is put there by the tour company, they have made a fake waterfall with a light show which is controlled by the guide and they have also added fluoride in the water so it looks cooler (green) on the photos. The guide spoke 3 languages but only covered some basic facts quickly and with a strong accent. It was difficult to understand him. He seemed stressed to get the tour over with and did not have any enthusiasm when talking. It would have been fun to hear more about the smugglers and history of the cave. The price 12 Eur is a bit too much for the visit. And it was very tacky to have a photographer take photos and try sell them after the visit.

Dear visitor, We are sorry that the visit was not to your liking. Thank you very much for sharing your opinion, we will keep in mind the topic of sharing more information about smugglers. However, the waterfall is not false, due to the water deficit we have recreated it both to provide an idea of what the cave was like before and for its conservation. Kind regards.
