The beach fires, is where everyone jumps over the fire or waves three times to make a wish, It is about night and day, fire and water, Fire purifies and water recuperate’s, refreshes and rejuvenate’s.

This wonderful evening can go on till the early hours, and many stay to see the sunrise. During the festival there is always a spectacular fire work display.
