If you are planning a holiday in Puerto San Miguel, Ibiza, the following information may help by giving you an overview on the resort.
This deep-cut inlet of the northern coast is an excellent natural harbour and has a white sand beach. On the inlets eastern side there are hotels from where you will be able to get excellent photos of the bay. On the same side of the bay, beyond the hotels, are the Cova de Can Marca, caves that were once used by smugglers as stores for contraband. Excavations have revealed animal bones, mostly of rodents, but no firm evidence of occupation by man. Today, the caves are open to the public.
Try visiting the main town of San Miguel on a late Thursday afternoon when the main square is front of the church fills with local people who perform Ibizan folk dances to the music of an authentic folk band. The meaning of most of the dances are lost in time, but many seem to relate to courtship. The town itself does offer a wider range of shopping than the supermarkets and souvenir shops that cater to people staying near the beach.
The church in San Miguel is a fine 14th century building, one of the oldest on the island, though the porch and patio are later. Inside you will find 17th century wall paintings in the Chapel Benirras have undergone a careful programme of restoration.
