The night of Sant Joan

The Catalan tradition returns to the beaches of Costa Dorada and Costa del Garraf

The night of Sant Joan

As every 23rd June, the night of Sant Joan is celebrated, a tradition that is part of Catalan culture, making it a magical and special night. Whether you live around the area or abroad, you can count on BusPlana to get to your favourite city to enjoy this celebration, whether it is on the coast of Tarragona, Salou, Cambrils, La Pineda, Sitges, etc. 

It is the shortest night of the year and marks the beginning of summer during the well-known Summer Solstice. During this night, we can see a fire cult with its traditional bonfires and firecrackers, as well as popular dinners, tasting the famous 'cocas de St. Joan' and parties. This is one of the most important dates for Catalans, as the sun reaches its highest point, being a symbol of fertility, wealth and strength, backed up by the intensity of the bonfires and fireworks that are lit on this night. 

The night of Sant Joan is also known as "the Night of Fire", and it is common to see that, in the days leading up to the celebrations, some shops sell fireworks to be launched during the night of 23rd June. 

During this celebration, the beaches are flooded with people who want to enjoy this celebration by the sea, having a picnic while admiring the fireworks. We recommend you going in advance so that you can take your favourite spot on the beach on time and without rushing. It is an ideal festival to celebrate with family and friends.
