Puerto de Mogán and Playa de Mogán
Puerto de Mogán and Playa de Mogán with an idyllic atmosphere and bridges crossing flower adorned canals are often called the Venice of the Canary Islands. This is the place for peace and quiet. Cafes and restaurants lie side by side facing the sheltered golden beach. The village has modern shops and all services, and a market every Friday. Among the innumerable boats and ships in the harbour you’ll find splendid yachts from around the world. The tourist ferries have frequent departures to and arrivals from the neighbouring villages Arguineguín and Puerto Rico.
Puerto de Mogán is a fishing spot that with its exceptional enclave and natural beauty, has given rise to one of the most beautiful urbanisations within the Canary Islands. The development of the harbour is set on reclaimed land with constructions of low density, trying to imitate the popular architecture of open spaces and it is intended for high quality tourism. It was built between 1981 and 1988.
The marina has turned into a meeting place for the numerous lovers of international navigation and it is equipped with 225 berth places, water and electric current supplies as well as connections for satellite television. Together with the traditional fishing harbour, this is an unforgettable place.
The complex consists of a hotel with swimming pool, an apartment complex not higher than 2 floors and bars, restaurants, shops and services of all sorts. The whole development is embedded in a rich tropical garden, that grows from its streets and terraces and hangs from its roofs.
The quality of the complex, its architectural style and the atmosphere of the marina compose the special touch the harbour of Mogán counts with.
Beside Puerto De Mogán is Playa de Mogán, a very nice new development with a surface of approximately 450.000 m² and approximately 4.000 new tourist and residential beds including 4 hotels and 2 complexes with bungalows in the 3-4 stars category.
The beach has been improved and is now a beautiful white-sand beach. Most of the urbanisation consists of pedestrian areas, without access for vehicles. This gives an idea about the character this urbanisation will have, favouring high quality tourism, not overcrowded, with spacious areas for leisure and amusement, green areas with indigenous flora, etc.
The coastal road ends in Puerto de Mogán, even though there is another beach further west. Veneguera, in a valley of high natural value, can be reached only from the inward part of the island.
The new motorway Puerto Rico-Mogán was opened in March 2013 which means that you will be able to reach Puerto de Mogán from Arguineguín safely and in no more than 10 minutes!
