Puerto de Mogán, Gran Canaria, Spain

Puerto de Mogán is a picturesque resort and fishing village in the municipality of Mogán, set at the mouth of a steep-sided valley on the southwest coast of the island of Gran Canaria and attracts many tourists either to stay or on day-visits.

Canal-like channels linking the marina to the fishing harbour have led to it being nicknamed "Little Venice" or the "Venice of the Canaries".

Restaurants and bars fringe the marina and the beach front. On a Friday there is a very popular market which brings in tourists from all over the island.

The original village of Playa Mogán with its narrow passageways and steps is a jumble of houses and apartments clinging to the cliff and the Mirador at the very top has one of the best views of the resort.

The harbour area, known as the "Venice of the Canaries", is a pedestrianised development of two-storey apartment blocks with roof terraces bursting with bougainvillea and other gloriously colourful plants and is dotted with gardens of banana and papaya trees, palms and bird-of-paradise plants.

Puerto de Mogán has excellent facilities for "yachties" whether they need just temporary moorings in the marina, repairs and servicing or wish to stay for longer periods. Some who arrive like it so much that they never leave!

The sandy beach faces south and is protected by a rocky mole, which makes it ideal for safe and easy swimming, while outside the enclosed area is good for those who are more adventurous and like to snorkel.
