The night of San Juan. On the evening of 23rd and early morning of 24th of June all the coastal towns & villages celebrate San Juan. At dusk the beaches start to fill up, fire's are started and are allowed for one night only, music is played and this carry's on until the early hours of the next day. There two key aspects of San Juan night, fire and water. The fire jumping is followed by swimming as people walk backwards into the sea to ‘cleanse’ their souls and bring good health for the year ahead – although many are happy enough to simply paddle at the water’s edge. Its a great night out and one of the best events on the Costa del Sol calender. Every year 23rd June.
