Puerto de Mogán

 

Puerto de Mogán, the most westerly holiday resort on Gran Canaria’s southern coast, is a picturesque port, a charming fishing village, a marina and chic holiday destination all rolled into one.

The stretch of golden sand on this excellent and well-protected beach, makes it a favourite with families. The clear water is calm and the sea around the breakwater is a great place for snorkeling as there is a variety of fish to spot. Visitors can explore the fascinating underwater world by taking a trip on a yellow submarine or spending some time on a deep-sea fishing boat and catch world-record-sized tunas or marlins.

There are sunbeds, sunshades, pedalos and canoes for hire and kiosks offering cool drinks and snacks.

Because it’s sheltered by the harbour wall, the water at Mogán beach is almost always warm and calm. It’s perfect for swimming and for families. The snorkelling is excellent if you head to the far end of the beach and jump in off the pebble beach (don’t do this on rough days).

This is an up-market holiday resort, aiming to offer quality over quantity for discerning holidaymakers who prefer relaxing surroundings to hustle and bustle.

Most often, Puerto de Mogán is called Little Venice due to these canals and small white houses covered in beautiful flowers. A very romantic place to take a walk, or enjoy a good food on the coast in the local restaurants.

All fridays there takes place a typical canarian market, which gathers people from all over the island. It is a perfect place for the most relaxing and calm holiday.

History
It’s hard to imagine nowadays, but before becoming the burgeoning tourist haven we see today Puerto de Mogán was a modest village, with small houses and narrow alleyways, called Playa de Mogán.
The Puerto de Mogán we see today was constructed in the 1980’s following the drafted plans of Rafael Neville. Following extensive land reclamation from the Atlantic, the current town was finished in 1988, after 5 years of construction.
Although tourism plays a vital role in the day to day life of Puerto de Mogán, the local government has vowed not to let the industry destroy the traditions of this small village, whose heritage lies in fishing exportation
