Sunday evening will see bonfires on many beaches in Tenerife in celebration of the Noche de San Juan Bautista as I posted HERE. This year, however, those beaches will unfortunately not include Puerto Santiago where the Ayuntamiento has cancelled the event due, its statement says, to “the persistent problem of the discharges from the underwater outlet”. The Council says that it is aware of the problem and understands the disquiet felt by both public and tourists who can be assured that everything that can be done is being done to resolve the matter.

The Council adds that various solutions are being sought to the problem which is not easy to resolve, and stresses that the issue is one that is not just affecting Santiago del Teide but the majority of municipalities in the Canaries, and that it hopes the little town’s two beaches will be able to be reopened as soon as possible. The Council is no doubt genuine in its efforts, and it has certainly offered sincere apologies, but it must be said that however widespread the problem is, Puerto Santiago’s is the only Noche de San Juan event being cancelled as a result of it. There will be great embarrassment about this because the event is very popular, as the image above of a previous Noche de San Juan there shows.
