Isla de Tabarca Fiestas

The Isla de Tabarca will be honouring both San Pedro and San Pablo from the 28th to the 30th June 2017. The programme includes concerts, parades, mascletas and fireworks. The Island will then enjoy another fiesta in honour of the Virgen del Carmen from the 14th to the 16th July 2017. She is the patron saint of fishermen, so a very important fiesta for the small island which is only a few hundred meters wide and 2 kilometres long! If you are planning a trip to Tabarca, then this is an ideal time to go and enjoy one of the parades or mascletas there.
