Port de Sant Miquel

North & Interior Ibiza

Originally a fishing village, 4km north of Sant Miquel de Balansat, this popular north-coast resort has a fine white-sand beach dominated by the huge concrete honeycomb of the Club San Miguel hotel. In this attractive, deep-sunk bay, you can waterski, canoe and hire snorkelling gear to explore the rocky shoreline. Offshore, tiny Illa des Bosc boasts a stunning villa with its own private beach.

Bus 25A runs to/from Ibiza Town (€2.80, seven or eight daily, May to October) via Sant Miquel.
