This month is always a great month, the sun shines for endless hours and the sea is warm for swimming. The Spanish people like to celebrate this with the fiesta of San Juan and where better to celebrate than having a party on the beach and to enjoy a night full of fire, music, dance, good food, good wine and of course fireworks.
This festival takes place during the shortest night of the year and in towns and cities alike bonfires are kept burning throughout the night and the whole day before is spent on preparing the wood and the fire.
Tradition has it that you must jump over the fire 3 times at midnight and then walk backwards into the sea to be cleansed and purified and then your problems washed away.
All along the coastline of the Costa Blanca you will see fires burning, a great evening to take the coastal train for a great view.
