Celebrate summer with Sant Joan

On the night of the 23rd of June, expect some serious noise all around Barcelona, Catalonia and other parts of Spain. La Nit de Sant Joan, or Saint John’s eve, is the enormous midsummer celebration, closely coinciding with the summer solstice. It’s no wonder this night is often referred to as la nit de foc or the night of fire. The reason being, fire is the biggest element of this celebration as bonfires, firecrackers and fireworks fill the warm night’s air. The most common place to celebrate this night is on the beach. Furthermore, head to Barceloneta just before the sun goes down to grab a spot and enjoy the festivities.

Sant Joan is one of the most exciting festivals in Barcelona in June! Join in with the locals as they celebrate the arrival of summer with fire!

Learn how to SUP

June is a hot month in Barcelona, and there’s no better time than to get wet and enjoy beach activities and sports. The calm waters of the Mediterranean are not ideal for pro-surfers, but they’re fantastic for activities like stand-up paddle surf, or SUP, a sport that has become very popular in the last few years. The people over at SUP Barcelona can set you up with everything you need for a calm but invigorating time on the water.

Sonar Festivities!

Barcelona is a big dot on the map as far as electronic music goes, in large part due to Sónar, an emblematic electronic music festival that was born here in the mid-90s. Divided into two parts, Sónar by Day and Sónar by Night, concert-goers from all over Europe and the world come to Barcelona to attend the festival or at least one day of it. This festival is without a doubt one of our favorite things to in Barcelona in June!

    A great selection of things to do, Renee; just wish I’d been able to stop by in June instead of May (not that I didn’t like it in May!)
