There’s no better place for a magical Midsummer Night than Valencia. On the shortest night of the year, known locally as Sant Joan, the beaches of Valencia come alive with fire, music and fireworks, and bonfires are lit across the city.

Families and groups of friends gather on the beach on the evening of 23 June to have dinner and watch the spectacular firework display on the shore of the Mediterranean, as well as the bonfires and special rituals, including jumping over seven waves in the sea at midnight, jumping over a bonfire to ward off evil spirits or writing down your most fervent wish and casting it into the flames.
