For the sea-speople, the most emotional celebration is the one of the Virgen del Carmen, in July; idol is placed on a boat which travels through the coasts of Arguineguín and Mogán amidst the roar of sirens and fireworks, followed by dozens of other boats. By the end of the festivities it will return to Arguineguín accompanied by the sme party.
