- Try the excellent fish restaurant Balansat.
San Miguel beach in the Port of San Miguel, a short drive from the picturesque village of Santa Gertrudis, is a pretty and safe family beach (with its own life guard) offering powder sands and flanked by pine trees either side amongst the resort's hotels. You can chill on the beach, where beds and parasols are about €7, or take advantage of a number of water sports, such as the Banana ride for the adventurous or a Pedallo for those who like their activity at a slow pace. We recommend you take a boat around the coast, check out the bay of the tremendous 5 star Hacienda hotel or the tranquil waters of Benirras and the famous 'God's Finger' rock where the brave can even climb up and leap in!
There is also a glass bottomed boat ride and some great snorkelling in the area. A number of good restaurants are within easy reach including the acclaimed Balansat Fish and Seafood Restaurant which has excellent Lobster and a renowned seafood paella. Plus, for those of you who want a little exercise, you can take a walk up to the pirate tower at the top of the Port, but we warned - it is a very steep climb!
The bay is also convenient for taxis to Santa Gertrudis for a great meal, or further a field to Ibiza Town or San Antonio.
We rate San Miguel as a great beach for families - make sure you also get in a visit to the nearby caves open all year round.
