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. Also, 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.
This is an up-market holiday resort, aiming to offer quality over quantity for discerning holidaymakers who prefer relaxing surroundings to hustle and bustle.
Away from the beach is a network of canals and bridges, which is why Puerto de Mogán is often described as ‘Little Venice’. Visitors can enjoy a pleasant stroll around the port, where there is a good selection of shops and superb fish restaurants.
There are places to park on the road as well as a car park close to the beach. Buses run frequently and there is a taxi rank.
A five minute drive away is the lovely picturesque beach of Playa Taurito, a soothing spot to relax in the sunshine. This area is surrounded by stunning cliffs, has calm warm waters and several restaurants close to the soft stretch of sand.
