Cova de Can Marca is a multilevel cave system with underground caverns and an infamous history as a smugglers’ hideaway. The cave is very well lit and offers guided tours with multilingual guides who take you on an exploration down winding passageways and through eerie caverns filled with stalagmites and stalactites.

The cave is highly rated and a major tourist attraction, but tours are offered every 35 or 40 minutes, which does a good job of keeping the crowds moving through relatively quickly. Pictures are very welcome, and you'll want to take a lot to capture the picturesque moments.

What else is good to know about Cova de Can Marca in Ibiza?

The tour route through Cova de Can Marca is only accessible to the able-bodied because there are numerous steps in and out of the cave. Additionally, the paths are sometimes damp from the natural underground moisture. Many of the caverns are surprisingly large, but some corridors are quite the opposite and would not be a good place for anyone with claustrophobia.

The tours last between 30 minutes and 1 hour, depending on the size of the group and the number of questions asked. At the end of the tour, you can stop by the gift shop for souvenirs and drinks.
