Puerto San Miguel Holidays - Peace, Quiet And Relaxation
Puerto San Miguel, Ibiza can be found nestling beneath cliffs to the north of the island. The broad sandy beach is ideal for families and couples seeking a more relaxed Ibiza experience. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking and with the abundance of pines it is easy to see why the island is known as "Islas Pitiusas" (from the Greek word "pitys" meaning pine tree). The area surrounding Puerto San Miguel has a rich heritage. The nearby Caves C’an Marca were discovered by smugglers, who used the vast caves to hide their contraband. Today a Puerto San Miguel holiday is not complete without a visit to the caves.
The view from the entrance of the caves back across the bay of Puerto San Miguel is truly breathtaking. For those seeking a touch of local culture the 14th century church that overlooks the nearby town of San Miguel is one of the finest examples on the island and well worth a visit. Every Thursday Ibizan folk dancers gather in the square in front of the church of San Miguel to perform to the sounds of Ibizan folk bands.
