A quiet little hamlet near to the inhospitable northern coast of Ibiza, which roughly translated means “the gateway to the unspoilt coast of the north”. A beautiful old 18th Century church surrounded by a few houses forms the obvious ‘village’, but in years gone by this was the heart of local civilization when Sunday came around and the outlying population met to congregate and worship – while the youngsters mingled and chatted each other up. Those rituals have changed nowadays – at least among the ‘modern’ island population – but the theory remains unchanged.
If you find yourself here and unsure what to do next, check out Cala D’Albarca which is indisputably one of the most beautiful coves on the island – totally unspoilt.
Then next part of this town which is about a 5 min drive down to the coast is the beautiful beach resort of Puerto De San Miguel.Its a little resort only accessible from the northern village of San Miguel. Perhaps the nearest competition to Portinatx on the northern coast of the island. It is modern with large hotels and apartments and associated services having taken over this otherwise beautiful natural bay.
A sneak preview of how this natural sheltered harbor might have been back in the day is available by following a short footpath to the left of the beach to a cove called Cala d’es Multons. The more adventurous might even follow the coastline to the beach of Pas de S’Illa, which we refer to as the approach to ‘Tracy Island’ (think Thunderbird’s…)
Puerto De San Miguel is also the home of Can Marca Caves – see here caves
