What’s On in June

Palm and sunshine

June is here. And with the mercury rising, and long days on the beach followed by even longer evenings of summer parties – not to mention a raft of great events – there’s plenty to keep you busy throughout the Axarquia.

The highlight of the month is, undoubtedly, San Juan with celebrations being held up and down the coast on 23rd June.
