Fiesta of San Juan in Puerto de la Cruz

It’s party time in Puerto de la Cruz (again). The beach party to celebrate midsummer and the fiesta of San Juan is one of the best shindigs of the year, and that’s saying something. During today, Puerto’s drinking fountains are decorated with flowers and fruit; however it’s tonight when the party really gets going on Playa Jardín.

There are a couple of new activities like turtles being released into the sea at Playa de Punta Brava between 17.30 and 20.30.

The entertainment on the beach gets going from 20.40 with the group Parranda Portuense followed by the lighting of the bonfires and 21.40, the Sky Productions show at 21.50, the group, Magec at 22.15 and a Music and fireworks show at 23.15 and the group Salvapantallas. After that it’s off to the magic waters for a refreshing dunking.

If that wasn’t enough, there are three different groups entertaining the folks at the Punta Brava end of the beach.

Don’t forget to keep a lookout for San Borondón on the horizon…but only if you last till dawn.
