Take some time away from the heat of the day in the eerie, underground caverns of the Cueva Can Marça in Puerto de San Miguel. Spookily silent and illuminated in strange colours, the formations of stalagmites and stalactites make for a Jurassic backdrop to the tour of the cavernous galleries.

Originally used by smugglers to store contraband, the marks they used to guide them in the dead of night can still be seen on the walls. At the heart is a spectacular music and light show with a 10 metre cascade of water. Visitors also get to see the magnificent views out to sea from openings hewn into the cliff side.

The cave is easily found in Puerto de San Miguel, just turn right as you enter the resort in a car, it's clearly marked on the road signs.

Open all year. May to October from 10:30 to 19:30, tours with a multilingual guide every 30 minutes. November to April from 11.00 - 17.30, tours every 45 minutes approximately.
