    Description

    Ibiza has a lot of wonderful places that you can see outdoors and in broad daylight. At night you also have plenty of places where you can discover the active and bustling nightlife of the island. But have you thought about what hides the underground world of the island?

    For this purpose you should pay a visit to the Cova de Can Marçà. This cave is located in the North of Ibiza, in the village of Port de Sant Miquel, about 20 kilometers from the capital of the island. Today it is one of the main tourist attractions of the largest island of the Pityusic Islands and it is obvious: the capricious nature has drawn inside it some formations and amazing lakes, in a natural setting with incomparable views to the bay, with small islands Murada and Ferradura just opposite.

    The Cova de Can Marçà has its piece of history. In the 70s of the XX century a Belgian speleologist's named Jean-Pierre Van der Abeelle began to investigate with the help of locals and he discovered the entrance and the exit of the cave in the cliffs of the port. He found a cave more than 100,000 years old, formed by telluric faults.

    The Cova de Can Marçà has lived glaciations and tropical heats and now it is practically fossilized except in the deepest galleries where beautiful stalactites and stalagmites are still forming. It was a cave used by smugglers to keep stashed packages of goods lifting them from the sea. Besides, you still can see the remains of the groundwater that ran through the cave. In addition, bones and fossils of extinguished rodents were found.

    Come to this unique site!
    You will enjoy 40 minutes of tour in a natural setting with water, light and sound effects. You can also take advantage of your visit to see other places in the area such as the beautiful beach and the village of Sant Miquel, full of bars and restaurants ideal for discovering the charms of the Ibizan cuisine. And from the viewpoint of the terrace of the cave, you have the chance of watching the Torre d'es Mular, an old watch-tower located at the edge of a cliff. Venture forth!
