On June 23, 2018 people will come to the beach Playa Fanabe (Adeje, Tenerife) to celebrate the night of the San Juan 2018 bonfires, which is traditionally seen as the night marking the beginning of summer and seasonal activities.


To celebrate the night the Adeje tourism department, under councillor Ermitas Moreira García, and the Happy Streets banner, are organising events on Fañabé beach. A specially designed and built wooden sculpture by Italian artist Luigi Stinga, will go up in flames, inviting all to ponder the fragility of life!


The celebrations will start at 7.30pm with live music and much more during the evening with the bonfires lit at 10pm.

If people want to hold their own bonfire celebrations they do need to apply for permission using the form that can be downloaded from the Adeje webpage and filled in and presented at the citizens’ bureau beside the Town Hall on the Calle Grande. If the bonfire is to be in a public coastal area they will also need to apply for authorisation from the provincial coastal department, which can also be done via the council.The council urges members of the public to take all the required safety precautions and collaborate with the authorities to avoid any problems, injury or damage to the environment.
