The picturesque fishing port of Puerto de Mogán is located on the South Western coast of Gran Canaria. Please see map below. Puerto de Mogán has plenty to do but is a quieter resort compared with the busier places such as Playa del Inglés and Maspalomas, and is a perfect retreat for relaxing. The town has its own unique style not seen elsewhere in the Canaries.
The waterfront is a purpose built resort with buildings no more than two to three stories high. It is a traffic free village with colourful houses in Mediterranean style. The houses are arranged with narrow alleys, prettily lined with small gardens and window boxes beautifully planted with colourful bougainvilleas.
Behind the harbour on the steep hillside, is the original fishing village. The pretty white-washed houses, steps and maze of narrow paths is home to the vibrant local community. Take a walk up the steps through the old town to the viewing belvedere for a bird's eye panorama of the whole resort.
Puerto de Mogán also has several sea water channels giving rise to its name "Spanish little Venice". A stroll around this port is enhanced by the many promenades and small bridges.
The port is both an attractive yacht marina and the home to a small working fishing fleet. The harbour is surrounded by restaurants, stylish cafés and bars (some with live music), making the location perfect for a romantic evening meal. Several times a year, Jazz festivals are held at the Bandstand in the harbour centre.
On Friday mornings, there is a bustling and very attractive street market stretching all the way from the harbour through to the town centre. East of the harbour, there is a well protected golden sand beach - ideal if you have children with you as all our apartments are only a short walk away.
Other attractions include; a yellow submarine offering trips to the underwater world off shore; boat trips to the beaches of Puerto Rico and beyond; deep sea fishing trips are also available with record sized marlin or tuna being reported nearby.
This is a fabulous location to relax and get away from it all, with plenty to do. The destination is delightful whatever the time of year, just look at the climate chart below. Our three apartments are well placed to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
