The most westerly vacation spot on Gran Canaria, Puerto de Mogán, is a scenic port, a quaint fishing village, a marina, and an upscale vacation spot all rolled into one. This fantastic beach is well-protected, and families love it for its stretch of golden sand.
Snorkeling is a nice activity in the quiet, clear water surrounding the breakwater since there are many different species to see. Visitors can also take a journey in a yellow submarine to explore the amazing underwater environment or spend some time on a deep-sea fishing boat to catch marlins or tunas that break world records. The majority of these are found in the marina, where visitors can rent boats, jet skis, go scuba diving with qualified instructors and contemporary boats, go parasailing attached to motorboats, etc.
There are shops with cold beverages and refreshments as well as sunbeds, umbrellas, pedal boats, and canoes for rent.
The 200-meter-long Mogan Gran Canaria beach has a pleasant promenade next to it from which you can observe stunning sunsets or, if you wake up early, gorgeous sunrises. It is a fantastic way to begin the day.
Many visitors come to admire the charming homes that may be seen here. Worth viewing are the gardens that line the exteriors of the homes.
Because of the extensive system of bridges and canals that extends inland from the beach, Puerto de Mogán is frequently referred to as 'Little Venice.' Visitors can take a leisurely stroll through the harbour, which has a wide variety of stores and excellent fish restaurants.
There are numerous eateries where you can sample the regional fare. You can try both larger fish like vieja, bream, or sardines as well as smaller ones like albacore, tuna, or swordfish. Since tourists from numerous nations travel to this charming town each year, there are also restaurants there that serve cuisine from other countries.
If you're looking for the ideal souvenir to give your friends and family after your vacation, you can find a wide variety of items here, including clothing, handicrafts, and some local delicacies like mangoes from the nearby Veneguera ravine, Canarian mojo (a tasty sauce that can be red, green, or spicy), and 'dulce de papaya,' a type of jam made from cooked papaya and sugar. With Canarian cheese, bacon, and dates, this can also be used to make canapés.
