A change of pace, in a phantasmagoric underground journey
The land down under
Ibiza's beauty isn't just skin deep, but under the skin, as well. In the Cova de Can Marçà, up on the north coast near the town of Sant Miquel you'll witness truly jaw-dropping natural formations some 100,000 years in the making - stalactites, stalagmites, underground lakes, and fantastical rock formations in an otherworldly underground landscape. They've opted to gild the lily even more here by installing sound, light and water special effects, but admittedly the greens, blues, and reds that play over some of these marvellous formations are entrancing. A 40-minute tour includes explanations of the cave's known history, including tales of pirates and smugglers. The cliffs surrounding the cave also provide a spectacular natural setting and some amazing views.
