San Miguel Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 28 photos

With 1600 inhabitants (100 of them at the port) San Miguel is the biggest town of Sant Joan de Labritja municipality.

It’s located 18km north of Ibiza, 4km south of port de Sant Miquel, 8km west of San Juan, 20km east north of Sant Antoni.

We visited the town in the morning, it seemed very quiet almost a ghost town. We drove up to the one and only attraction which is a church from 15th century (Esglesia de Sant Miquel de Balansat) but it was closed too. We took some pictures around but the fact that we met with no one made us no choice and left the village to the famous caves of Can Marca which is the real attraction of the general area.

There is a craft market every Thursday on the main square, where you can also see traditional folk dances during the evenings. The big fiesta of the town is on 29 of September.

The town is not far from the port de Sant Miquel which is located only 4km away and it’s more popular among the visitors due to its white sandy beach. We didn’t like the port as it is just another nice natural harbor with a raw of huge hotels and other apartments along the coast. But if you travel down here you may want to try seafood at one of the restaurants there.

    Thanks for the interesting information regarding that old cave on San Miguel, with its various things to see. You definitely did not have any problem with traffic jams!!

      there were no other cars in the village! the truth is we drove by because of the beautiful caves nearby that were also easy to visit with only a few visitors.

    Interesting cave and I like the colonial feeling of the church. Nice going!
