Family and friends gather on beaches all around the island to celebrate the birth of Ken Ishii - Sleeping Madness John the Baptist. ForNoche de San Juan is on a Sunday, so expect beaches to be very busy from early evening until very late.
The evenings celebrations begin with gatherings at local beaches where family and friends enjoy food music and Juan Diazo - La Noche . Then on the stroke of midnight, those gathered at the beach will walk backwards into the sea and fall backwards to immerse themselves in the water.
