Full Moon Festival. July-August. Unique Festival
This festival has been declared to be of Tourist Interest by the Provincial Council of Málaga.
Please check with the local Town Hall or Municipal Tourism Office for the festival date before planning any sightseeing activities.
Every summer since 2012, Manilva has celebrated this unparalleled festival that coincides with the full moon of July or August, when the moon is at its most brilliant. During the celebration, locals come dressed in white and gather on Sabinillas beach and its promenade, graced with exquisite decoration based on white tones, and dazzling lighting from candles and torches.
There are lots of activities like fire juggling, acrobatics, chill-out music, as well as events for children. The most-awaited moment is certainly when hundreds of candles and wish balloons are lit simultaneously, lighting up the sea and adding to the magnificence of this magical night.
