Visit Puerto de Mogan

Puerto de Mogan is on the island of Gran Canaria, one of the Eastern Canary Islands.

Visit Puerto de Mogan

Puerto de Mogan is set on a stretch of coast which is, as yet, relatively unspoilt. It is a very picturesque town particularly the part with its buildings set on the sides of bridged waterways. The combination of bright paint work on the buildings and a mass of colourful plants all around the little port make it a real treat.

Its beauty does mean however that it is full of tourists in the high season, especially on Fridays - market day in Puerto de Mogan.

The original fishing port nestles into the mountain and nearby is the luxury marina full of expensive yachts. Head down to the harbour if you are looking for a spot for lunch. There are some excellent fish restaurants as well as a whole variety of restaurants for all budgets.

The beach is a nice golden sandy beach with plenty of shops and caf├ęs set behind it for when you need a break from all that sun.

There are plenty of opportunities in Puerto de Morgan to take Catamaran trips, diving trips or go on the 'yellow submarine' to see a couple of wrecks in the bay.

Puerto de Mogan Area

About 6km inland is the village of Mogan. This is a pleasant village which has remained largely untouched by tourism on the island. This is a good base for walkers.
