Puerto de Mogán
Puerto de Mogán (Mogán harbour), comprising both Playa de Mogán (Mogán beach) and the harbour, is part of the bigger municipality Mogán, stretching from Arguineguín in the West to Veneguera in the East. It’s the sunniest place in Europe with lots of restaurants and cafés along the beach promenade and the harbour, as well as apartments, hostels and hotels.
The two parts of Mogán’s closest coastal village,
- Puerto de Mogán with the harbour and its “Little Venice” complex of apartments and townhouses along the harbour and some canals in the South-West and
- Playa de Mogán in the South-East with a wide beach and lively beach promenade
have the advantage of an easy direct access to the airport, the capital Las Palmas and other sea resorts via the new GC-1 motorway.
The harbour is used by local fishermen, lots of yachts and regular ferries to other Southern towns. It is also a preferred stop-over of yachts crossing the Atlantic to America. In the harbour are also stationed glass-bottom boats and a yellow submarine, offering to see some of the underwater world without being a diver. Also our 7.5 RIB with a 200 HP Suzuki motor is moored in Mogán harbour.
At the South-Eastern corner of Mogán beach very near to our center some short stairs at the breakwater outside and the beach itself are our two main coast entry points for diving and snorkeling.
Mogán is a fishing town that also has large areas of cultivation. It produces extraordinary gastronomic products among which are the great quality and variety of avocados and mangoes as well as the different marine species and fish that you can taste when they are freshly caught by our fishermen.
