Sant Miquel de Balançat

Sant Miquel de Balançat

The small country town of Sant Miquel de Balançat is in the north-west of the island, an area that is dotted with small hills and as remote as it is possible to get on the island from the major tourist resorts. The church of Sant Miquel stands high above the other buildings in the town. In the past it was used as a fortress to defend the populace against pirate attacks. The first church was built in the 14th century, but its present-day appearance is the result of remodelling work conducted in the 18th century. Every Tuesday, Plaça de Sant Miquel is the setting for a market where produce typical of Ibiza is sold.

Just a few kilometres away is Sant Miquel Port, situated in a small bay with a sandy beach. A number of hotels and the most essential services for tourists are to be found here. From the port, the eye is drawn to a small islet just offshore where a luxury home has been built. Can Marçà Cave makes a fascinating place to visit. It was once used as a refuge for smugglers bringing contraband goods to the island and contains beautiful formations of stalactites and stalagmites.
