Nit de Sant Joan, 23 to June 24
The summer solstice arrives at the Mediterranean laden with symbolism, magic, party, music, dance and fire, especially fire. In Finestrat is the beach of Cala which hosts popular acts, focusing on the ancient rite of purification, the essential elements are fire and water. Young people light bonfires on the sand beside the sea, and then they jump on them. The festival is combined with group dances, food tasting and, to tradition, with a dip in the waters that morning of June 24 has some special qualities. The music and fireworks brighten the night.
