Believed to be one of the most beautiful areas of Gran Canaria
, Puerto de Mogan, on the island's south west coast, is a melting pot of beautiful beaches, tranquil vibes and nearby attractions that will ensure your holiday here is as enjoyable as possible. Whether you want to fill your days with activities or you're just happy to watch the world go by while lazing on the beach, Puerto de Mogan would be an idyllic spot for your escape to the Canary Islands
Often considered to be Gran Canaria's answer to Venice, Puerto de Mogan boasts a series of water channels that flow under archways through the town. This corner of the island is also subjected to more hours of sunshine than anywhere else on Gran Canaria and provides the perfect place for beach bums looking to top up their tan.
This simply breathtaking spot, found at the base of the Mogan Mountains, offers a truly memorable environment in which to base yourself for your stay in Gran Canaria ' you'll wonder why you've not visited before and will be planning to return in no time.
The Dunes of Maspalomas
Located just along the coast from Puerto de Mogan, the Maspalomas sand dunes are certainly a sight to behold. Where a desert meets the sea, the dunes provide some incredibly breathtaking views, and while you could mosey over them with the sand between your toes, there is also the option to join a camel safari, or hire a dune buggy to explore the dunes in style!
The vibrant and lively resort of Puerto Rico is just a few minutes along the coast and offers a wide range of fun and exciting activities on your Gran Canaria holiday. Regular boat trips set off across the ocean waves in search of dolphins, while, back on dry land, the clubs and bars in the main town centre provide a range of nightlife spots for every taste.
San Bartolome de Tirajana
Head inland for the day and you will find a variety of ancient sites just north of Puerto de Mogan. Highlights include the Tunte settlement (an entire village built underground), the Arteara Necropolis and Las Fortalezas - a series of natural and excavated caves that have been combined to create a fortified settlement.
Take a Stroll around the Town
With a maze of streets to explore, water channels to cross and pretty buildings to admire, there's a lot that can be said for an afternoon spent strolling around the town of Puerto de Mogan. Picturesque and full of charisma, the town is completely pedestrianised, with a marina and fishing harbour to check out. Sample some al fresco tapas or dine on the fresh catch of the day while watching the sun set beyond the horizon.
Bargain Hunt at the Quayside Market
Every Friday, there's a quayside market that pops up in the resort that is a treasure trove of bargains and souvenirs perfect for you to snap up and take back home. Strolling around the market stalls is a great way to while away a couple of hours and with a pair of keen eyes, you can pick up some fabulous wares for next to nothing.
Immerse yourself in some Jazz on the Plaza
If you time your visit wisely, you will be able to sample some of the live jazz that's played at the bandstand in the plaza. These regular jazz weeks are a perfect reason for music lovers to visit Puerto de Mogan.
Puerto de Mogan

If you need to base yourself in a resort that is a little bit more up-tempo, Puerto Rico can be found along the south coast and brings with it a whole host of attractions and amenities that will satisfy couples, families and those in search of a fun-filled beach break.
