Summer nights in Mallorca: San Juan

Summer begins on the 21st of June and Mallorca is already looking forward to long sunny days by the sea and lively nights under the stars with clear skies. Besides, if you are lucky enough to visit Mallorca this time of year, you will be able to experience a festivity that is as important as it is magical: San Juan.

In Mallorca, the festivity of San Juan is deeply rooted in history and culture dating back centuries. This celebration, which takes place from 23rd to 24th June, marks the beginning of the summer solstice and the start of the longest daylight period of the year. It is therefore both a special and magical night, where religious elements and pagan traditions come together to create a unique experience full of joy and colour. 

The night of 23 June

During the eve of San Juan, the island’s beaches and streets are lit up with candles and bonfires, and residents and visitors alike gather around them to enjoy a pleasant dinner under the stars, music, good wishes and a festive atmosphere that is enjoyable for all.

Further to the significance of fire as a “purifier”, the sea plays a key role in the festival of San Juan: many dive into the Mediterranean to welcome the first rays of the summer solstice, hoping that the water will bring good luck and protection throughout the year, according to this magical tradition.

This festivity is an opportunity to delve into the rich Mallorcan culture and experience the islanders’ hospitality, enjoying delicious traditional food and drinks as well as local music and dances. At our Hotel Son Caliu Spa Oasis, the San Juan festivity is a lively celebration that draws people from all over the world to our secluded Son Caliu beach.

If you want to live an unforgettable experience full of tradition, joy and magic, we are awaiting you in our privileged corner by the sea. Get ready to immerse yourself in this unique celebration and discover Mallorca’s festive summer spirit!
