Midsummer Night Bonfires - 23 June
On the 23rd of June we celebrate the summer solstice and there are many legends are myths surrounding this date. On the night of June 23rd it is traditional in Tenerife to light bonfires on the beach, celebrating a new beginning and hoping for better things in the future, while leaving the bad things in the past. Best towns to see the bonfires in Tenerife are Guia de Isora, El Medano, Puerto de la Cruz and Punta del Hidalgo.
The small town of Icod de los Vinos has its own celebration on this special night - this dates back to the island’s native Guanche days and also involves bonfires and torches, which are carried from La Vega to El Amparo. There will also be music and dancing, so if you want to experience a traditional night in Tenerife you can head to the western coast to Icod de los Vinos.
