In Catalonia we welcome the summer as it deserves: jumping over bonfires on the beach at night on June 23, a magical night, celebrated all over the country and the shortest night of the year. The Night of Sant Joan is full of magic and tradition and there is never a lack of fireworks, sardines, verbenas and local cava. To enjoy it, there is nothing better than finding a beach, where you have enough space for friends or family. The night of June 23 is very special in Catalonia, which is known as the verbena of Sant Joan. One of the best proposals for the date is to celebrate the Sant Joan night in Sitges, as here this event is internationally recognized. For an amazing stay in Sitges we offer you the most elegant Luxury Apartments that we have so you can enjoy comfort, design and security that BE APARTMENT provides you.
On June 23 people gather on the beaches, usually dressed in white. During the celebration, traditionally dedicated to Sant Joan Bautista (Saint John the Baptist) who was born on June 24, people make bonfires and burn old junk at 12 o´clock, some are even encouraged to take a dip in the sea! All these rituals traditionally have been prepared to attract good luck to the year that begins. The party continues with music, dancing and magnificent fireworks until dawn, especially in Sitges. One of the advantages of passing Sant Joan in Sitges is that you can easily walk here by foot so you will not have any transportation problems on a night where everyone is having a huge party.
One more of the most important advantages of celebrating Sat Joan in Sitges is to have a gorgeous view of the mountains and the fireworks over the whole coast of Garraf, which is really impressive! In addition to this, if you fancy to go clubbing, you will find very good options for that night in Sitges, du to a lot of offers and the popularity of the event.
For Sant Joan night, you can choose any of the beaches in Sitges and we recommend you to bring you some snacks so you can eat in the evening. The beaches will be full of people, ´cause it is a party till dawn! Las but not least, do not forget to eat the traditional "Coca de Sant Joan", a sweet cake made for this celebration, with pine nuts, dried fruits or candied fruits.
