This once sleepy fishing village on the Costa Del Sol truly comes alive on the 23rd of June each year with the most amazing San Juan celebrations. About a week ahead of the 23rd of June you'll see the massive hoguera (bonfire) being constructed on the beach. Now this is no ordinary bonfire. It is instead a work of art. Expect nods to local, national and international politics, famous people, cartoon characters and more, all super sized and ready to be set ablaze.
If you want to enjoy San Juan from the comfort of one of the many beach side restaurants, it's best to book a table a month or so in advance as they sell out very quickly. But the beach at Sabinillas is huge so you'll be able to enjoy the sight of this amazing structure going up in flames wherever you are.
Complete with fireworks, music, dancing, food and drink until the early hours, this is an event that is simply too good to miss!
