San Juans Night
What is the origin of San Juans Night?
What is the tradition of San Juans Night?
In Malaga, everyone meets on the beaches: friends, family, couples, etc. The meeting usually takes place before nightfall, especially to get a seat, since the beaches get crowded.
The tradition consists of making a “moraga” (that is what it is called in Malaga to spend the night on the beach partying), lighting a bonfire and burning some large dolls, called “júas”. They say that jumping the bonfires brings good luck. As a peculiarity, many students also dare to burn their books and notes saying goodbye to the school year.
At 00:00 most of them head towards the sea water to bathe or get their feet wet. Tradition says that the bad is left behind and a new, better stage begins.
On many beaches in Malaga, tents are set up with different events and guest artists. In addition, fireworks are also thrown as a sign of celebration.
Sunsets at 9:00 p.m.
Where to see the Malaga Sunset in Summer?
Although you can investigate and come across a place that ends up falling in love with you, from Fetajo we are going to advise you to go to our selection of the 3 best viewpoints to watch the sunset in Malaga.
- Baños del Carmen. Arriving at Pedregalejo, you will find a little corner of virgin beach next to a nice restaurant by the sea. This restaurant is called “El Balneario” and it is one of our favorite places to watch the sunset, along with good food and a cold beer.
- Gibralfaro Viewpoint. In the heart of Malaga, going up to the Alcazaba, you will find the most emblematic viewpoint of the city, “Gibralfaro”. With these beautiful views and the characteristic color of the Malaga sunset, you will have the opportunity to capture a photo to remember.
- Monte San Antón. Being the best option to arrive by car, you can park just before the start of the “Pinares San Antón” route. From the beginning of the route, from the South Entrance to the East Viewpoint, it can take approximately half an hour. Upon arrival you will find a beautiful panoramic view of all of Malaga, where you can even see Rincón de la Victoria in the distance. Its access by car through Google Maps is relatively easy.
