Leaving the lovely beach of San Vicente Sheila takes you on an original Pilgrims path which people have been walking for 1000’s years up to the Shrine of Tanit who is the goddess of Ibiza. On the path upwards through the forest you will see old dug out water troughs which would have been used to cleanse yourselves with before reaching the Shine and giving your offering to Tanit. The Shrine has an amazing history first being used from 550BC and where 2600 busts of Tanit where found which would have been given as offerings, Tanit is the Goddess of fertility, sex, death and war. After visiting the cave and area we continue slightly higher to gain amazing views over the valley and down to the sea before taking an easier road to return to the beach.

This is a medium short walk on good small dirt roads and paths, some with loose stones underfoot and one steep uphill section to Tanit’s Cave on small narrow rocky paths for about 20 mins. We take this section slowly and are there to help! The walk is 5.5 kms and takes approx 2.5 hours with a short stop at the cave.
