The Fiesta of San Juan, Fuengirola

Fiesta de San Juan, Malaga

The Fiesta de San Juan in Malaga is one of the most anticipated nights of the year. Hundreds of people along with friends and family build bonfires on the beach to celebrate the shortest day of summer. San Juan is all about changes. The fire is supposed to purify your body and soul while a midnight dip in the sea (walking backwards holding hands with your friends) is said to refresh and rejuvenate.

Tradition states that if you jump over the bonfire three times your problems will be ‘burned’ away.
