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.

Basically they are a tourist trap and just a few caves in the rocks. There are walkways constructed so that you can enter with ease.

Dear visitor, The Cave of Can Marçà has 8,500 square meters and a development of several hundred meters and this is a small part that we have adapted to make it visitable and safe for everyone to come and discover it. There are even legends that affirm that there are passageways that reach Benirrás beach, but we have preferred not to investigate and simply preserve everything that had been used historically. We are sorry that it was not to your liking. Kind regards,

We travelled to see these caves as something to do with the scooter we hired. Before I get any further I wouldn't recommend travelling to see them if they're out of your way.
The parking is free an ample, it was a very hot day when we visited but managed to find a shady spot to leave the scooter.

There's a very short walk from the carpark to the ticket/cafe area which has unbelievable views over the bay below. The facilities are good with toilets, bar and gift shop. The staff are fairly lacklustre although maybe it was the heat and we were told we could not take an ice cream on the walk down to the cave so had to wait until after the tour. It was €12 each for the tour which is fairly steep considering the experience.

There are a lot of steep steps down to the cave, most of which you have to do on the return journey as well so isn't suitable for people with mobility issues or very young children. There's also steep stairs inside the cave. There was a professional photo taken on the walk down which you could purchase for €7 or both for €10.

The tour itself was also lacklustre and although you're given a history of the caves and various facts there's no passion in the telling and no great depth or detail, no cool smugglers stories just a very brief overview. Light and music show was a bit meh and gimmicky, there's no natural running water now so it's switched on by your tour guide, would be cooler if they just left it running without lights or music to make it appear natural. Glowing pools are cool but again are manufactured not natural.

Caves are awesome but not celebrated enough for what they actually are and tour is short. Worth going if you want something to waste an hour and you've got the spare cash. We enjoyed it but not at the ticket price, €5 would be more appropriate without improving the tour aspect.

A lovely trip to caves on the northern coast of Ibiza. Amazing views of the surrounding coastline allowed for brilliant photo opportunities, and a pleasant overall vibe. Free parking and good facilities including toilets and cafe made this a convenient trip. Tour was interesting whilst not dragging on for too long. Well worth visiting!

Stumbled across this place on a random drive round the island. Pulled in the car park which has some walking opportunities and saw lots of lizards on the rocks. We went down to see what it was all about there was a tour in 10 mins and at 11 euros thought it was worth a look. The tour took about an hour, the guides were very nice, the guy did the talk in three languages for everyone. There was a bar / cafe and small gift shop, all reasonably priced. We thoroughly enjoyed it, one of the best things I did that week :) it was a really interesting tour, great if you like rocks! It's a lovely surrounding area to explore too. Not too much difficult walking, suitable for all ages
